About TntWare


The Support Progress box shows you how your pledged support compares to your need. The green bar at the top represents the % of received pledges compared to your Monthly Goal.



Monthly Goal

Your goal is defined in the Options.

Menu Path: Tools | Options

Total Pledges

Total pledges is the monthly sum of all pledges for contacts whose MPD Phase is “PARTNER-Financial”. For partners whose gifts are less frequent than monthly (such as quarterly or annually), their gifts are recalculated to a monthly amount.

Average Monthly

Your monthly average is TntMPD’s computed current monthly average for Financial and Special PARTNERS.

Amount to Raise

Monthly Goal minus Total Pledges.

When I manually figure my monthly average from the contribution report, whether I check my 3,6,9 or 12 month average, it never matches the monthly average in the "Analysis" screen. I'm trying to figure out if there is a discrepency. The monthly average in the "Analysis" screen is consistantly about $500 or more higher than what I get when I figure it manually.

Please give me some direction on what I am missing here.

Thanks, Tim

Never mind me, I'm just blind. I just found the answer to my question.

Is it possible to add a line or an option to be able to see ONLY the special gifts received?  Not the average, but the total of all special gifts received?  This would be very helpful, especially for those of us in our initial MPD that have special one-time goals that we are trying to meet.  If this is not yet possible, it seems to me that it would be fairly easy (on the scale of programing) to add a line to do this on the analysis page.  A toggle would be really great, to allow us to change from average monthly, to total special gifts.

Thank you!

Hi Nate,

TntMPD doesn't currently offer this feature.  But it's a good suggstion you can make (click "Suggestions" up top).

I am trying to figure out how to use the analysis feature. I am confused on why when I click the checkbox next to "Pledge Commitment" it effects the outstanding pledges when I run the weekly excel update. What is the this checkbox for? I am also not seeing the supporters who have pledged but not given accurately in the weekly update.

The check box stands for "Pledge Received".  If the box is not checked, TntMPD assumes it's an unfulfilled pledge.

About special gifts: The support progress box and Contribution Report do not help track special gifts, but Appeal Tracking does.  Here are some help topics on this: and

When I expand the progress box to show AvgMonthly from pledges, should that figure ($2588 in the above example) match the solid monthly support in my MPGA?  I know both the MPGA and the support progress box have designations for both Pledged and Special, but wanted to confirm that TNT's math was current with what the MPGA would show.

The TntMPD amount and the MPGA [Monthly Partner Giving Analysis] amount will differ, because they are computed differently by different systems. The MPGA is computed by your organization with no input from you, while the TntMPD amount takes into account how you have identified your donors and their giving habits. How MUCH they differ will depend on the nature of the special gifts you receive and how you track them in TntMPD. Both are useful, just in different ways.

Q: I have received some special gifts that were personal (i.e. they did not go to our org. acct), and I don't want them to be applied to my Avg. Monthly.  But, I want to keep them in TNT so that I can keep track of these kinds of gifts.  Is there a way to remove these personal gifts from the calculations TNT makes when figuring the Avg Monthly?


Troy Wolbrink wrote re: Support Progress Box

If you link those gifts to an Appeal (call it "Personal Gifts"), then on the gift you can change the "Pledge Fulfillment to zero (Don't apply towards pledge fulfillment)  This should make the gift not count towards the average.

I have a issue kind of like what Jesse stated above but your solution won't help me. In my situation, I have a large sending church that ties giving to missions by connecting individuals in the church directly to a missionary, not giving out of the general church budget. When a person from that church gives to us they give the donation in the offering in our name, the church office collects the gifts each month and then writes one large check to our agency totaling all individual amounts. We then import the monthly gifts list sent by CSV file from the church office to track individual giving for each partner. But we also get a duplicate total monthly amount recorded under the church's name in the monthly statement from our agency. This, of course, skews Avg Monthly total in the Support Progress Box. The easiest solution would be to just delete the total gift amount each month under the MPD tab for that church's name but I am afraid that maybe someday I would like to see total amounts given by that church for analysis. Is there a way to edit/mark an recorded gift so that is listed in the MPD tab but not applied to our Avg Monthly in the Support Progress Box?

Hi Dwight, there's not a box like this.  The best you can do is "reverse" the church's large gift and then manually add each individuals.  That's covered here:
