When entering recurring gift and recurring gift payments in The Raiser's Edge:
  • The Recurring Gift record is the master or template record of the commitment. It notes the promised amount, fund, the schedule, and stores the credit card / direct debit if applicable. There is no actual money on this record, so the Recurring Gift record does NOT post to the General Ledger.
  • The actual money / payments for a Recurring Gift are recorded as Recurring Gift Pay-Cash in The Raiser's Edge. These records are for the actual payments, so Recurring Gift Pay-Cash can post to the General Ledger.
