Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone can tell me which donor management database you use? We currently use raisers edge but are interested in getting some info on others.

 

Many thanks!

We use GiftWorks too. It is a decent program, although much less robust than Raiser'sEdge. There are often very good offers on purchase through TechSoup.

Thanks Latrina! I will check it out. I appreciate your feedback.

At Junta we use Giftworks from Mission Research.  It seems to be more streamlined and user friendly than Raiser's Edge, which I personally have used in the past.  It has great reporting features for donors and for donation trends, and it is online-based, so it can automatically link you to fundraising webinars and information, which can be helpful.  It is less costly than Raiser's Edge.  I hope this helps.

First place I would check is on TechSoup.org, in addition to greatly discounted softwar for nonprofits they have great articles and discussion boards. Here is a sampling of recent relevant articles:


Maybe you’ve had doubts about your current donor management system, but are reluctant to change. This workbook will walk you through the process of assessing your needs, comparing them to what you have, and determining the benefits — and the costs— of moving.

Learn about database management systems - including FileMaker Pro and how your organization can get it.

Data warehousing is certainly not a solution for every organization. It’s not likely to be a great option for tiny organizations or those without any IT support structure. Is a data warehouse right for your organization?

New guide from Idealware and NTEN compares 33 systems costing less than $4250.

This donor-management product comparison chart will help you evaluate software based on your needs.

Tools to track, manage, and serve your members effectively.

We'll show you what data conversion entails, how to prepare for a data move, and weigh the pros and cons of various data-migration techniques.

 

Another place I would check is: www.grassroots.org they teamed up with Zowzer and now provide a to provide a free database  software for their clients.
