If you were to describe what your current donor database looks like, how would that portrayal go? Do you currently cross-check information across multiple spreadsheets? How many tabs and documents do you have to open to figure out how to contact a donor and see their donation history? 36% of nonprofit organizations struggle to collate donor information, and as a result, they find themselves losing important data through institutional memory loss.

Now imagine this: you sit down at your computer and open one program that contains everything you need to oversee your donor management.

It would be a flood of relief to have access to tidy and useful donor management software, right?

Good news: you already have that access!

A donation management system like this may sound advanced, but it’s actually simpler than a spreadsheet. And it won’t cost you any extra since you’ve just signed up for a Funraise Free account.
