We do both (but let me clarify). Cumulative receipts are sent to all monthly recurring givers (i.e. payroll deduction) with no individual receipt issued (each month).
Additionally, we send cumulative end of year summaries to all constituents who have contributed $25,000 or more in the calendar year. Finally, there are some constituents who have requested yearly summaries and their record is marked accordingly as we like to be donor centric.
Hope this helps. Reach out if you would like to discuss further.

We just started doing this 3-4 years ago along with a letter and a very soft (if any) ask and reply device. It got rave reviews when we started and has been one of our better appeals in terms of response rate. I bet it also has an impact on donor retention even for those who don't respond immediately, but we haven't looked at the data on that yet.
