# Choosing Donors
In a number of places you are able to select some of your Donors to work on, for example, when choosing to generate donor receipts or emailing Donors.
In all of these cases the same control is used to select the Donors:
The default for the Donors chooser is to show all active Donors for the current event.
The current set of selected Donors is shown in the main part of the control and you can page through the Donors using the buttons at the bottom if there are more than fit on one page.
You can filter the Donors by clicking on the Options icon (3 dots):
