Merge Fields for Letters

Merge Fields can be considered dynamic text boxes. This is because the Merge Field can pull text from multiple Supporter records, making multiple letters each with unique text. After you have inserted a Merge Field into your letter, Preview it using the Refresh Preview button. When you print or email your letter, it will contain actual data specific to each Supporter. Below, we list all Merge Fields present in Greater Giving Online. Many of these Merge Fields can be further configured. See our article on Configuring Merge Fields for more information.
