    The following merge tags can be used in both the subject line and the body of the email:

    *|FNAME|* (this is the donor's first name)

    *|LNAME|* (this is the donor's first name)

    *|DONATION_AMOUNT|* (this is how much was donated)

    *|DONATION_DATE|* (this is the date of the donation)

    *|DONATION_TIME|* (this is the time of the donation)

    An example of an automated thank-you email sent using merge tags in the subject line is:

    *|FNAME|*, thank you for your *|DONATION_AMOUNT|* gift!

    It will appear as:

    Alex, thank you for your $50 gift!

    Keep in mind that every thank-you email sent by Give Lively also includes tax receipt information that is automatically populated with the donor’s first and last name, donation date, amount, and time.

    Note that thank-you messages/receipts are automatically sent to every donor. Nonprofits cannot opt out of this feature. At present, thank-you messages/receipts can only be reissued by Give Lively’s Member Support Team.

    Example of a thank-you message:
