We manage over 200 applications online, and could definitely take on more. If you only manage a low number - this would still be great software, but you may not need this. Also, if you have very specific applications, this might not be the best fit. However, if most of your applications are the same and just vary with some specific questions - this is perfect!

DonorPerfect is an effective donor management platform. It is well suited to our current organizational needs. I realize that there are other platforms that offer more options, but in my research and conversations with these companies, I was never able to see the added value for the usually huge jump in cost. For me, as a one woman shop, it is quite effective for my needs.

Poor cash batch interface. Almost half of our receipts are generated by cash and this interface does not support our needs very well.

It's always up when we need it. There are some errors that happen and are not reproducible and cannot be resolved. But [they are] very few and none that cause disruption for the organization.

DonorPerfect is as reliable as your internet connection. It is a cloud based application and therefore you cannot pinpoint where the bottleneck is should you have one. But for the most part the app runs quickly.

DonorPerfect has been the only product I have used in this field. With that said, I think that the ease of use for this system is too perfect to want to use any other system

[There have been] only two outages since we have started using it and they were extremely information proactive. This should scale easily based on your internet connection.

Return on Investment

  • DonorPerfect is a great way to keep notes on donors and schedule times to contact donors for thank yous or discussion. This allows for increased donor engagement which in turn increases donations to the organization.
  • This system has allowed our organization to stay on top of the history of our donors. The home changes in leadership every two to three years. DonorPerfect allows any new sisters to the area to run reports on the giving history and maintain relationships with big donors. This also gives us a chance to re-engage with donors that might have been dropped with previous leaders.
  • DonorPerfect has helped us increase our maintain our mailing lists and corrections. This in turn has saved us money from mailing to wrong addresses, deceased donors, etc.. It has also helped increase our donations by more than double since we began using the system to track donors and the donations we receive.
