There’s a variety of software programs that many nonprofits, just like commercial businesses, need in order to be successful. For charitable groups managing donor information, communicating with supporters online and accepting internet based donations are of particular concern.
eTapestry offers a whole suite of tools to simplify this process for you. There’s a web-based donor management system, an online giving system, specialized email tools and even event registration just to name a few. Since everything is connected you save time by not having to enter duplicate information or use multiple systems.
Here’s a great case study…
Gleaners Food Bank in central Indiana uses eTapestry’s tools to make their donor data management less time consuming. They are able to track donation information effectively so they can continue to follow up with supporters and solicit additional funds.
eTapestry was instrumental in helping them recover from a major disaster – vandals who damaged the refrigeration system over a weekend left $170,000 worth of food destroyed.
The community response was overwhelming. They went to the food bank website and donated instantly, using the online donation system enabled by eTapestry. Imagine how much longer it would have taken to get the needed donations in without online giving already enabled.
The software is user friendly and you’ll get top notch training and support. It can be made available to your entire team so that information related to your fundraising efforts that they need to succeed are right there (from anywhere since it’s a web based system).
Plus the eTapestry team manages all of the techie stuff – all upgrades, maintenance, backups, and data security are managed and monitored for you. A big plus for so many organizations that don’t have a technology department (or even one tech guy or gal)!
The bottom line is that using software like eTapestry helps you focus more on your mission, build better relationships with supporters and makes fundraising easier.
