# How To Track "Paddle Raise" Donations

There are two ways of recording donations:

  1. a straight cash donation; or,
  2. donations to specific items.

# Cash Donations

To record a straight cash donation, click on Bidding/Sales and select the DONATION tab. See Record Donations for more information.

These will appear on the bidder's statement under the Donations section.

# Specific Donations

You can also create items with the Donation Items type and set specific values.

For example, if you are doing a Paddle Raise with four donation levels ($50, $100, $250, and $500) you would create four items with their type set to donation and their values as required. It can help to give these items a meaningful number as well, such as PADDLE50, PADDLE100, etc.

On the DONATION tab of the Bidding/Sales page, when select the item# the amount is entered automatically.

If you are entering a whole list of donations for the same item, you can use the Pin item checkbox to prevent the item from being cleared on each recorded donation.
