A campaign is a date range during which your contributors can create and accept pledges for a particular fund.
Permissions. To create and manage campaigns, you must have the Manage Funds, Campaigns, and Online Giving permission set to Allow in your list of responsibilities.
Only gifts from contributors with pledges will apply to the campaign.
Suppose, for instance, you want to raise money for new choir robes. You could add a three-month campaign for the Worship fund. You could then add a pledge for each person who wants to help with the campaign. When each of those people makes a contribution to that fund during the campaign period, the gifts will be added to the campaign total. Pledges can be added within the campaign dates, and you can choose whether to allow prepayments and post-payments to the pledge.
