Major Giving Capacity Value can be thought of as a prospect's pledging capacity for a five to ten year period. It is automatically calculated based on the Major Giving Multiplier of the Estimated Wealth Formula in Configuration, which defaults to 5%. The Total Identified Assets is multiplied by the Major Giving Multiplier of the Estimated Wealth Formula to calculate Major Giving Capacity Value. It is not necessary to click the Calculate Estimated Wealth button in order for Major Giving Capacity Value to update.
Major Giving Capacity (MGC) is always a range based on the MGC Value. MGC only updates if the MGC Value has changed enough to warrant a new MGC range.
For example, if a prospect's current MGC range is $250,000-$499,999, it only updates to $500,000-$999,999 if the MGC Value increases to a number somewhere in the $500,000-$999,999 range.
Note: If a prospect's wealth is hidden, the MGC Value may underestimate capacity. Also, the MGC applies to all organizations and does not demonstrate the capacity of major giving specifically for one organization.
