Overview, Working with Fiscal Donations

Return To The Knowledge Base

Nonprofit organizations exist to support and raise funds for a specific purpose. A donation is a gift made by an individual, household or organization to a nonprofit. Argenta has a Donation Management System built in to help you track and run reports on your material donations.


Open the Fiscal Donation Management Section


From the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of any screen, select Donation Management > Fiscal Donations.



When the page loads, The Material Donation List displays all the material donations you have in Argenta. There are a few things you can do on this screen.


Access classifications for material donations.

Every Argenta item list has links to related sections and classification codes. Find these links in the upper right hand corner above the title bar.




View The Total Number of Records and/or Total Dollar Value

Above every list is a pink label that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. If you filter the list by specific criteria, the totals will change to reflect the filter. This is a very quick and easy way to count or sum list items.


Search The List

Enter key phrases into the search field to search the list. Fiscal donations can be searched by the donor's name.


Advance Search and/or Filter The List

For information on how to filter material donations see KB Article, Filter Fiscal Donations


Export The List To Excel

Argenta is complete with many reports, charts, graphs and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can do that by exporting to Excel. Every List in Argenta has an "Export List To Excel" button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

Sort The List

Click on any list header to sort the list by that field. Sorting the list can give you a visual overview of your data or help you find something quickly.


Add A New Fiscal Donation

Click the "Add A New Donation" button above the list to add a new fiscal donation. For information on how to add fiscal donations see KB Article, Add Fiscal Donations


View or Update Fiscal Donation Details

To open a fiscal donation record so you can view or update the details, click the corresponding View Update Icon in the list. For information on how to update fiscal donations see KB Article, View and/or Update Fiscal Donations


Delete Fiscal Donations

To delete a fiscal donation, click the corresponding Delete Icon in the list. Confirm you want to delete the record. The record will be deleted and disappear from the list.
