I think two pages for "payment history" and "pledge history" should be
considered. They each solve separate questions: (A) "where did my money
go?" and (B) "How does this crowdmatch thing work in terms of my place
in it and the projects I support?" (i.e. understand the system via
reviewing your history as a patron). Both do seem relevant to MVP.
Combining them may make it harder than designing to separately answer
each question…
