Giving Patterns: LYBUNTS, SYBUNTS, Current Donors and Never Gave

EverTrue makes it easy to see who your lapsed donors are. Our Giving Pattern field puts a tag on each record based on their donation history so you don't have to figure it out yourself!

Each record is tagged with one of the following giving patterns:

LYBUNT - this donor gave last year but not this year

SYBUNT - this donor gave a few years ago but not last year or this year

Gave This Year - this donor gave during the current fiscal year

Never Gave - this person has never made a gift

You can find the Giving Pattern on the Summary section of a constituent record, under the Last Gift.

How Giving Pattern is Calculated

EverTrue relies on the accuracy of your imported data to determine a constituent's giving pattern. We use the Last Gift Date field in tandem with your fiscal year cycle to determine what type of status the record should receive:

  • “Gave This Year” occurs when last gift date is greater than the fiscal year start date.
  • “LYBUNT” occurs when last gift date is within one previous year from the fiscal year start date.
  • “SYBUNT” occurs when there is a last gift date that occurs prior to one previous year from the fiscal year start date.
  • “Never Gave” occurs when there is no last gift date.
