DM Reports - Donor Reports: How to create a body of statement to add to your donor statements

How to create a body of statement to add to your donor statements

  1. Navigate to the Donor Reports page.
    • On the Navigation Bar, expand Development Manager → Reports and select Donor.
    • On the Home → DM page, select Donor from the Reports card.
  2. Once you are on the Donor Reports page, select Contribution Detail Statement Report Or the Pledge Statement from the report dropdown.
  3. Click the Configure (Configure) in the upper right corner of the page.
  4. Scroll down to the Body of Statement field and to add a new letter or note, click the add button (+).
  5. The Body of Statement form will open and you may begin entering your text information.
    • Give the letter a name for easy identification. You will especially want to differentiate between a contribution 'body of statement' and a non-giver 'body of statement.'
    • Use the word processing tools to change the font, size, format, and text color. 
      • Please note: The length of your body of statement may affect your page breaks. If it is only slightly too long (and requires an extra page) and you need every word, consider changing the font or the font size. Otherwise, try to rewrite the body of statement to say the same thing using fewer words.
      • If desired, you can add enters before and after your body of statement to give more spacing between your greeting and signature and your body of statement.  
    • Make sure you save your text.
    • The statement will already contain a greeting and the date.
  6. Unless you have other fields to update on this configure screen, click the Save & Close button at the bottom of the screen.
