Note: Before you proceed with the following instructions, back up the database. If your organization integrates multiple Blackbaud products, refer to the Additional Requirements section of the backup solution.

    • Create a gift query  to pull the appropriate gifts. If you want to only pull gifts that are matched, on the Criteria tab, select Matching Gifts, Matched by not blank.
    • Run Donor Acknowledgement Letters using the query created in step 1. Select the appropriate fields on the Fields tab including:
      • Gifts, Matching Gift Company
      • Gifts, MG Amount

      Note: If you are including gifts that are not matched in the merge, either use a conditional merge based on the Matching Gift Company field or create an if...then...else statement in the Word document selecting the Matching_gift_company_1 field in the Field Name drop-down menu.
