“Downloads” tab

You can quickly create downloadable CSV reports of your contribution data in the “Downloads” tab of the Dashboard menu (under “Tools”). The reports here can help you with email list targeting, reaching out to particular donors, or executing other parts of your digital fundraising strategy!

CSVs are a popular and universal document format that should work with all types of donor tracking software. In this tab, you can download CSVs with contribution data over a specific time frame, including your all-time contribution list. You can also export CSVs of your canceled recurring contributions, recurring contributions that have completed their last scheduled recurrence, refunded contributions, and first-time donor information.

All of your recently requested reports will appear at the bottom of this page. And if a large CSV takes significant time to load, we can send the report to your email!

recently requested reports

Please note: In any CSVs you download, you will be able to see where a donor gave. If they gave on a form, you will be able to see the name of the form in the “Fundraiser Recipient ID” column. If the donor gave through their donor dashboard in their ActBlue Express account, you will see “ActBlue Express Donor Dashboard Contribution” in the same column.

“Report Builder” Tab

If you don’t need all of the information contained in the CSVs available in the “Downloads” tab, make a custom CSV in your Dashboard’s “Report Builder” tab! 

The report builder allows you to build and download fully customizable CSVs, with adjustable date ranges and only the columns you want to include! The tool also gives you the option to save templates for reports you want to download regularly. For step-by-step instructions on using the report builder, click here.

Additionally, ActBlue’s CSV API lets users automate their processes and download donor data via CSVs without having to log in to the entity Dashboard every time. To access the CSV API for the first time, navigate to the “Admin” section of your Dashboard toolbar and select the API Credentials tab. To get step-by-step instructions for using the CSV API, you can view our technical documentation here
