Gifts in Slate are segmented into three main categories: Gifts, Pledges, and Planned Gifts.
|Gifts||Donations made in this category represent a current transaction (e.g. an institution has received something of value from a donor.)|
|Pledges||Donations made in the pledge category represent the intention of a donor to make a gift in the future. The donor can make a gift in fulfillment of a pledge. This fulfillment can be done as a single gift or over a series of installments.|
|Planned Gifts||Donations made in the Planned Gift category represent the intention of a donor to make a gift as part of their estate.|
