The Fundraising Goal Category is an overall goal which can be a combination of several activities. For example, you could have a Fundraising Goal Category called Golf that captures revenue from a golf tournament event, an online auction, and a membership drive appealing to the golfers that happens after the event.

You can assign a Fundraising Goal Category to a gift or as part of donation, event, and auction pages.
