Managing Your Giving Types in 1.0

Important Notes on Fund Management Versions:

We're working diligently to synchronize the 2.0 and 1.0 sides of fund management. Currently:

  • In 2.0: You can view, add, edit, hide, or archive fund types. See detailed article here.
  • In 1.0: You can set the order of the funds (details included in this article).

Ensure you make all necessary edits first in 2.0 and then organize the order in 1.0.

Helpful Tip: 1.0 updates flow into 2.0, but changes in 2.0 don't feed back into 1.0.

You can add, edit, hide, organize, and manage the giving types people can use when they give to your organization. For example, you can create giving types (or funds) for General Funds, Tithes, Missions, Building Funds, and more.

  • Giving Type Designations allow your donors to give to specific funds or projects at your church.

  • They also help improve the reports you see in Tithely by clearly assigning every gift to a fund, even if the fund is General Giving or Tithes.

Edit Default Giving Type

  • The Default Giving type will affect both text-giving and giving blocks on your Tithely Site.

  • If the fund name (Giving Type) is NOT an exact match to the fund's (Giving Type) set up within your Tithely Giving account, by default it will be allocated to the Default Giving Type.

Delete Giving Type

Our system does not allow you to delete a giving type. But, you can just change the status from "Active" to "Hidden" and it will no longer display on your giving form. We recommend changing the status as best practice. 

Integrations and Giving Types

If you are using an integration from Tithely to another system and you add new funds/giving types, you’ll need to make sure to map the new fund in your integration to a fund in the other system.

If using Elvanto you will also need to update this within your Elvanto account under Financial > Chart of Accounts. Then you will need to fund map those giving types together in the integration in Tithely.
