Recurring Gifts: Outstanding Commitment vs. Remaining Amount | Vision2 Help Center

Understand the differences between outstanding commitments and remaining amounts as they apply to recurring gift schedules

There are two balances associated with recurring gifts: outstanding commitment and the remaining amount

An outstanding commitment occurs when a scheduled payment fails for any reason other than General Decline. A failed scheduled payment is marked as an outstanding commitment because the donor intended to give that gift.

The remaining amount for a recurring gift is the amount left to satisfy the schedule set by the donor. The remaining amount is calculated in one of two ways:

  • For schedules with an end date: amount remaining based on the specified end date

  • For schedules without an end date: an amount based on the next 12 months

Please note: the remaining amount does not include any outstanding commitments
