[Donor Management System] Modifying a Single CanadaHelps Contribution

While using your DMS, certain scenarios may require modifications to some Contributions coming from CanadaHelps.org to help in your administrative tasks.


  • Modifying CanadaHelps Contributions in your DMS will not change these donations back on CanadaHelps.org.
  • CanadaHelps.org will always maintain the original information provided by the donor.
  • You won’t be able to modify any Tax Receipting information for these Contributions.

What can I modify from CanadaHelps Contributions in the DMS?

  • A donor accidentally contributed to a different Fund or Campaign than they intended.
  • A donor wishes to add, modify, or delete their dedication information (e.g. “In Memory of”).
  • You wish to add a Note with more information about this Contribution.
  • A donor accidentally marked their contribution as Recurring.
  • A donor now wants their contribution to be Recurring.

You can also modify a single Offline Contribution or add multiple offline Contributions at once.
