New Feature: Press Release Report

Posted on

With the upcoming FEC deadline, your communications team will likely request information such as how much you raised, the number of donors, undisclosed vs. disclosed donors, and average gift size from first quarter fundraising.

The new Press Release Report in Crimson 3 is designed to quickly answer all of these questions. The Press Release Report analyzes your campaign’s data for the reporting period and provides answers for these commonly-requested data points:

  • Number of gifts
  • Number of donors
  • Number of first-time donors
  • Number of gifts under $100
  • Number of gifts under $200
  • Average gift size
  • Gifts from the state and congressional district

Please note that the Press Release Report does not include your final quarterly fundraising numbers. Please wait to pull it until your final FEC report is reconciled with the bank.
