Article Summary

The Funds dataset houses information associated with funds that the advancement office manages. Storing funds as their own entities within Slate allows multiple data points such as accounting information, fund contacts, etc., to all be maintained together.

The Fund dataset is then linked to the funds field to tie gifts and funds together for reporting purposes. The Funds dataset has purposefully not been populated with many fields as each institution chooses to store different data points.

  • Benefits

  • VSE reporting
