Recent Pledge Amount¶
This Condition located on the Contributions category tab in Search Builder will find people based on how much they have pledged to a specific fund looking back a specified number of days. If a husband and wife give/pledge jointly, this condition will only return the head of household, even if the spouse gave/pledged also.
You must have Finance role in order to use this condition.
For purposes related to performance of the system, search builder conditions relating to contributions and pledges are designed to examine contribution and/or pledge records, and as a result, cannot return people who do not have contribution and/or pledge records. Consequently you cannot directly find people who have not pledged during a period. But you can do this indirectly by wrapping the reverse condition (those who did pledge) in a group and saying “not in that group”.
Sample search for those with no pledges¶
The Recent Pledge Amount condition has a Comparison of Greater than 0 and can be for a specific fund (you can leave the Fund empty to look at all funds) but it is in a group with the comparison of None.
You can add other conditions to further narrow the focus such as:
Either church members or members enrolled in a Main Fellowship Class
So, the search will find all who are either church members or members of a Main Fellowship Class who have no pledges in the past 365 days.
