When building the report below it is helpful to think of soft credits as two sides.  The donor (hard credit) and the person responsible for the donation (soft credit).  Our query on soft credits will include soft credits without bringing in the gifts.  Using hard credit columns we will be able to pull information from the donor side even though we don't have them in our query results.
