Likelihood to Recommend

NationBuilder

If you are managing a nonprofit agency, advocacy group, or political campaign, NationBuilder is likely the best tool available for the job. It has everything you need in one package, excellent support from NationBuilder reps, and plenty of reputable case studies that show its effectiveness. There is also a robust network of capable partners that build custom solutions and provide consulting.

Network for Good

We use it for donations (with an option to sign up for emails). We do not have a robust online giving program at this time, but feel that Network for Good is and will be the best option for us. The form that a donor is required to fill out is lengthy, but I have not had any donor that has given online want to say that this was a deal breaker for them. I would still like to see an easier option down the road if possible.

Cons

NationBuilder

  • NationBuilder lacks the ability to create a message board.
  • NationBuilder needs to add threaded comments so you can respond to people who comment on your page.
  • NationBuilder needs to make it easier to offer tiered memberships.

Network for Good

  • We host a lot of events. I wish it had a separate event section, so that people who buy tickets to events are categorized separately from those who become an actual donor.
  • I wish we had more ability to customize our donation pages, so that we could put more branding around the events we host. As it is, we have to use the same colors, etc., for all "fundraising" - which includes our events.

Alternatives Considered

NationBuilder

It is difficult to compare WordPress and NationBuilder because they are completely different. NationBuilder is a closed system that is specifically made to accomplish certain things. WordPress is largely an open source product with thousands of plugins, extensions, and expandability. However, because of its increased versatility, some clients gravitate toward WordPress over NationBuilder.

Network for Good

I have looked into other options that offered online mobile giving platforms, but had not found them to be any better or more comprehensive than Network for Good. I apologize that I can't remember all that I looked into. In some cases, the others were much more expensive. They may have offered more, but I couldn't justify the additional cost for the added benefit. There are some Network for Good offerings that we have not expanded into, but I would definitely look at them first before making any sort of change.
