These steps are to push gifts from Almabase to Raiser's Edge NXT.

Step 1: Create a Gift List

  • First, create a list of the gifts to be pushed to the Raiser's Edge gift batch. Head to the Gift Dashboard > Add Filter to narrow down the gifts you would like to push.

    • For example, you can use filters such as "Page" to filter gifts made to a specific campaign.

Pro Tip: The "Is synced with external database" filter lets you narrow down all gifts that have not yet been synced to Raiser's Edge NXT.

  • Based on the filters you apply, the gifts will be listed in the table view as shown below.

  • Filter based on gift date: Apply date filters to this table to create a list of gifts made between specific dates.

  • Click on the gear icon βš™οΈ and select the "Create a gift list" option. This creates a list of all the gifts you've filtered on the table.

Note: The "Create a gift segment" option lets you create a dynamic list. A list that auto-updates based on the filters applied.

Step 2: Validate the list

  • Under the Gift List tab πŸ‘‡, look for the list you created and click on it.

  • Select a Raiser's Edge account to push the gifts. If you do not already have a connection, click Add Connection from the dropdown. Follow this article to learn how to add a new connection.

Note: Ensure the connected Raiser's Edge account has Security Groups - Full Rights and Fundraising rights.

  • Click on the Test Connection button to ensure both systems are connected successfully.


  • Click on Validate Gift List. The system checks for any potential errors with syncing the gifts in the list.

  • Any errors that the system detects will be listed below. You can fix these errors by clicking on the Fix Errors πŸ”§ button.

  • Once all the errors are fixed, click Validate Gift List again to confirm the fixes and proceed to sync.

Step 3: Configure gift data and push to RE

  • Click Sync Gift Data once the gifts are validated.

  • You will see the options to configure gift details before pushing them to the RE gift batch. Let's go through them one by one.

  1. Gift batch number

    • You can choose to add to an existing batch - just search for it or create a new batch.

      • Use Default Soft Credits (toggle) - If you turn this ON, the soft credit rule set by default will be applied.

  3. Custom gift attributes

    • The custom attributes configured on Raiser's Edge will appear under this tab.

    • Search and add the required value to these attributes and sync.

How do you check the status of the sync?
