According to a survey by Find Accounting Software, most nonprofit fundraisers report being more effective in their fundraising with better technology. However, 1 in 3 fundraisers say the software they are using to fundraise is dated or inadequate.
Fundraisers often use a combination of software to get the job done, which is typically broken up into three categories:
1. Productivity Apps (Microsoft Office, Google Docs)
2. Contributions management software (Donor management for tracking fundraising activities)
3. Accounting Software (Most programs are used by both nonprofit and for-profit, and many can track donations.)
Nonprofits, fortunately, don’t have the same problem with the software to authorize, enable, and track workforce spending. Check out PEX.
Most major gifts are solidified during face-to-face meeting with fundraisings and executive directors. However, many donors (lower-dollar donors in particular) make a gift using the web. For more on fundraising technology trends, check out the article from Find Accounting Software.
