Giver Portal

The Giver Portal

With the Giver Portal, constituents in your database can:

  • create (and change) at any time their own recurring gifts

    Givers can create for themselves recurring donations to any funds you make available and at any schedule.

Giving Tool

The Giving Tool

The Giving Tool is one of three tools in the Online Giving Toolkit. It allows one-time online gifts, although each gift may be split among as many of your giving funds as you choose to make available during setup of the tool. Because a Giving Tool does not store the giver's payment information, the giver must enter payment information each time he or she gives through the tool.

Check Image Scanner

MagTek MICRImage™ Check Scanner for Windows®

Using the check image scanner is absolutely the fastest and most accurate way for Windows® users to enter gifts! Check Image Scanner is not available for Macs at this time.

Check Reader

Mini MICR Check Reader


With the Mini MICR® Check Reader by MagTek®, entering gifts in DonorWorks is a snap. From within the Gifts program, the Mini MICR will read the account number off a check, pull up the donor's record and, if required, even print the check number on the gift entry.

How Data Hosting Works

How Data Hosting Works

You can download and install DonorWorks from our website onto any supported computer.
Then enter a user ID and password to configure DonorWorks to use the DonorWorks Hosting service.

DonorWorks will automatically connect to your database and you can get to work!

How Remote Access Works

Remote Access of Data Stored on Your Server

This setup requires an active Internet connection, a static public IP address and a means of accessing the server through that IP (router with port forwarding, VPN, etc.). The cost of this option varies widely from one area and ISP provider to another.
