Comes to my mind - as you deal with the donors daily, and
ask them why do they want to stop their recurring donations (in
they do), I wonder if there is an aggregated data available

The majority of recurring donations is stopped immediately after the
first donation by the donor, when he gets the receipt and realizes
he has triggered a recurring donation instead of a one off.

Then there is a number of donors who ask to stop the recurring
Some of them provide a reason, which in some cases is that he wanted
donate once and not on a recurring basis, in some cases lack of
and in some other because they don't use the software anymore (no bug
other technical reason provided).

A small number of donors block donations because the software
fit their needs or is too difficult to use (again, without providing
technical reason or a bug).

You should always consider the fact that only a very small number of
users is capable of spotting bugs, as for them the software always
as intended. It took me several years to get a marginal understanding
bugs, and I have been working in technology environments since 1982.
majority of users is technically dumb, including people who are
to be competent, and this is just a fact.

Also, in case it is a concrete problem that stops them donating any
longer, please do you have an opportunity to file bugzilla tickets
such cases?

Since 2013, not a single user has related stopping donations with
while some donors have related their donation to solving bugs.
