We have a client that we moved from Donorperfect who brought up that they feel the receipt tools are incomplete without the ability to include YTD (year to date) giving on receipts. This seems like a simple and common request. Am I missing something simple here?
Install Jamie McClelland's Summary Fields extension - see here - and insert Total Contributions this Year as a token.
It sounds like you're looking for the Contributions Table Token extension: https://civicrm.org/extensions/contributions-table-token
