Character limit

Postal tribute preview

When a donor completes a donation dedicated, they are redirected to Donor Portal to compose and customize their dedication message. When you enable the option for donors to send the dedication message using a print format, you can specify the preview graphic used by selecting either the Postcard or Letter with envelope option. This helps a donor understand how their dedication message will appear to its recipient.

Image collections

Image collections enable you to offer donors a customized library of images to use with dedication messages sent using email.

Image collections can only be used when dedication messages are sent using email. They are not available when dedication messages are sent using a postal method.

By default, the Image Collections feature includes several pre-made categories with images already included. You can modify these collections as needed or create your own.

Customizing image collection categories

Each Image collection category can include up to four images. The specifications for these images are below:

  • Minimum resolution: 800 x 600px
  • Recommended resolution: 1,600 x 1,200px
  • Allowed file types: JPG, PNG, GIF (static image only)

The display order for images can by set by dragging and dropping the image thumbnails into the preferred order.

Each image can be downloaded, replaced, or removed using the tools displayed when hovering over an image thumbnail.

Categories can be renamed by selecting the name of the category.

The display order of categories can be set by dragging categories into the preferred order using the six-dotted grab handle shown for each category. This display order defines how categories are displayed in the dropdown menu for image collections in Donor Portal when a donor is composing their dedication message.

  • Hide from donors: The category will not be shown in the image collections dropdown menu in Donor Portal.

  • In honor only: The category will only be shown in the image collections dropdown menu in Donor Portal when the dedication type is In honor.
