We've set up the fundraiser site so that it does not count transactions that are marked with the Data Source value "Registration Fee" in the raised totals thermometer on the Fundraiser site. Those transactions are considered to be the cost of participating in your fundraiser and thus are not counted as money raised by the participant. While we cannot force the database to automatically apply the registration fees to be applied to the Fundraiser page, we can manually update the transactions using the steps listed below:
  1. Click Accounts
  2. Click Find an Account
  3. Search for and click on the participant's name
  4. Click the Gift entry that corresponds with their registration fee
  5. Click the heading on the right side of the screen that says User Defined Fields
  6. Click the Data Source field
  7. Unmark the Registration Fee checkbox
  8. Click Save and Go to Journal
If you'd also like to have the registration fee apply to the participant's goal, we'll need to soft credit the gift to the participant:
  1. Click Accounts
  2. Click Find an Account
  3. Search for and click on the participant's name
  4. Click the Gift entry that corresponds with their registration fee
  5. Click the heading on the right side of the screen that says Tribute, Soft Credit, Matching Gift Relationships
  6. Click the magnifying glass below Soft Credit
  7. Search for and click on the participant's name
  8. Fill in the amount of the registration fee in the Amount field
  9. Click Save and Go to Journal
