How the integration works

No spreadsheets involved!

Within a few minutes of a donation or a fundraising page being added to your Enthuse account that information is added directly to your Donorfy, without you needing to do anything.

Enthuse collects all of the key information and processes the payment and adds the details as below:

  • Supporters (donors and fundraisers) - these find or add Donorfy Constituents
  • Supporter consents - added to the Constituent's Communications Preference Centre
  • Fundraising Pages (individual and team) - create Donorfy Fundraising Pages
  • Donations - these create Donorfy Transactions, soft-credited to fundraising page holders (unless the donation is a direct donation)

The integration It can be set to run automatically (in which case it updates every 15 mins or so), or on demand.





The Enthuse integration is a Professional-only feature. Essential subscribers, please contact us to find out more about upgrading.




Where the people and organisations that make donations, pay for events and hold fundraising pages have opted not to remain anonymous they will be matched to an existing Constituent (using the duplicate check algorithm) or added to your Donorfy.   

Constituents are created with one of the two constituent types as set from the Enthuse Settings page in Donorfy, according to whether they were defined in Enthuse as 'people' or 'organisations'.



For newly added Constituents, the communications Channel consents and the Preferred Communications Channel are set according to what has been imported from Enthuse. Purposes are not set as part of the integration. 

For existing Constituents, the integration will not update any Communication preferences. 


Fundraising Pages

Personal and Team Fundraising Pages created in Enthuse are automatically imported into the Fundraising Pages tab and assigned to the fundraiser's Constituent's Profile or the Organisation's Constituent Profile.

Fundraising Pages include the various financial codes which inform the assigned items for the Transactions (Product, Fund, Department and Campaign). 

These aren’t specifically provided by Enthuse, so the integration assigns according to the best defaults - see here



When a donation is made in Enthuse, Donorfy will add the payment as a Transaction on to the donor's Constituent Timeline. The various assigned items for the Transaction such as Product, Fund, Department, Payment method, Bank Account, Campaign, etc will be added according to the best defaults - see here



Where a donor has opted to cover the processing fees for the payment, the fee will be added to the Processing Costs field within the Transaction. 


Soft Credits

Soft Credits are created for donations that are associated with fundraising pages. The Soft Credit is for 100% of the donation value and is assigned to the holder of the fundraising page against which the donation was made.

Enthuse can associate one donation with both a personal and a team fundraising page. Where this occurs the transaction will be soft-credited to both the holder of the team fundraising page (usually a company), and also the holder of the personal fundraising page.


Gift Aid

Where a donor has opted into Gift Aid for the payment, Enthuse will collect the Gift Aid on your behalf. Once claimed the Gift Aid Amount will be added to the original Transaction and can be reported on via the Gift Aid Amount Claimed field.
