The Right Fundraising Software and Tools Matter. Have Your Ever Try to Dig a Ditch with Hammer?
There are approximately 1.5 million nonprofits in the US, according to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, and fewer than 100,000 or so use any type of professional fundraising and constituent relationship management (CRM) software. Like accounting software, fundraising software comes in many forms and many different price levels.
Most nonprofits try to make due with general purpose business software like Excel, Microsoft Access, FileMaker Pro or QuickBooks to keep track of mailing lists and donations. These are good software products, but they aren’t designed to provide numerous critical features necessary for successful fundraising. It’s no surprise that organizations that start out with such programs soon encounter significant problems.
If your nonprofit is struggling with the wrong software tools, you are missing out on the two key benefits of professional fundraising software — raising more money and saving your valuable time.
