Event Module Fees

The Event Module Fee settings provide valuable options for organizations in the following scenarios.

  • Tracking Event Tickets - Select which Event Tickets are generated as fees in Raiser’s Edge NXT to monitor attendance accurately.
  • Managing Items for Sale - Choose which Items for Sale are created as fees in Raiser’s Edge NXT to ensure Sponsorships remain distinct.
  • Clear Fee Identification - When individuals purchase Event Tickets or Items for Sale, ensure that the name of the ticket or item appears in the "fees" column for clarity.

  1. For all your Event Tickets, choose which appear as Participant fees
  2. For any Items for Sale, choose which appear as Other fees
  3. Click Save once all settings have been configured


*If you choose not to sync a purchasable type as a gift, no payment will be linked. However, the fee will still appear on the participant's record.
