We use Raiser's Edge to track donors, alumni, parents, and all constituents with a relationship to our school. It's used to record gifts, communications, actions, and events and to track prospective donors. It is also used to send email and mail communication. Other departments in our organization frequently ask for information from Raiser's Edge.

Raiser's Edge is used by our Development department to record and track donations. All donations are included in Raiser's Edge, including event registrations and merchandise sales, as well as non-cash donations (stock, in-kind, etc.). It is also used to query constituents and create mailing and email lists, and to track prospects for our Philanthropy advisors and Grant Manager.

We use it only for our fundraising efforts, in our fundraising department. We use it to record donations, generate solicitation or invite lists, and track event participation. We used to track volunteers in Raiser's Edge, but moved away from it. Since Raiser's Edge can store a lot of information, we record and track everything possible, including gift agreements or letters. It helps with record reviewing. We also track meetings or communications with donors and prospects in Raiser's Edge. It provides complete view of donors behaviour and our solicitation efforts.

Raisers Edge is being used by the whole organization. Employees access the program to enter communications with donors and potential donors. All of the organization’s constituents data and donor history is stored in the program and accessed by employees at their remote locations. Having a centralized location for the data that our national and international staff can review has made communications much easier to track.

Raiser's Edge is used by the majority of our fundraising country offices. In our office, we use Raiser's Edge as our main database to track all of our donors and all gifts/donations. It is also used by our finance department to reconcile our bank records with our donation records. It is mainly a tool for fundraising to track constituents and their donations.

We use The Raisers Edge for our team. It is our primary database for maintaining all of our donors and their information. We use it to not only house the info, but run reports and mailing lists to see how our fundraising goals are doing (this is a super simplified description of how we use it). It is primarily used in our department which is around 130 people, but our entire organization relies on us and our reports and lists from Raisers Edge as their source of information.

The Raisers Edge is used primarily by our fundraising department to track gifts, memberships, event participation, (paid and free), pipelined cultivation. It addresses the needs of major gift cultivation, patron groups, membership programs, institutional giving (from foundations, corporations, government agencies). However, there are other departments outside of fundraising that also use RE, under our guidance for their relationship management needs which typically involve tracking lists and other populations.

I used Raisers Edge when I worked for Drake University. We used the platform within our University Advancement team for fundraising purposes. I was 1 of 25 users who worked on the platform daily. We did, however, have a team of 50 with some individuals using it on once in a while. I was a huge fan of the NXT version as I started right when it was released. It was much more user-friendly and easier to navigate. I did use the database version to run reports.

The Division of Advancement is currently using the Raisers Edge at UCA, which the Office of Alumni Relations falls under. Our department is one of five under the division's umbrella. The Raisers Edge serves as our CRM and houses the alumni database for the university. It allows for a collaborative effort between our department and the others as engage with alumni and friends of the university while doing our best to maintain an up-to-date record of our constituents.

Our Development Department uses Raiser's Edge on a daily basis to manage relationships with donors including entering gift data, tracking action items, and pulling queries. This CRM allows our team to work together and have access to the same information. Having everything in one place is essential for managing donor relationships across changing teams.

The Raiser's Edge Enterprise is used by the following offices: Development, Marketing and Communications, Accounting, Alumni Relations, Career & Professional Dept. and Scholarships. We store all students, parents of students, graduates, donors, professional companies, and so much more. Raisers Edge is a fantastic software that I have been using for 24 years or more, so long I don't remember.

Raiser's Edge is obviously primarily used by our Fundraising department, but we use it to pull lists and reports for the whole organization. It holds employee information that is more detailed than HR's database. The gifts are integrated with Financial Edge to facilitate reconciliation. It is the master database for constituent data for most of the school.

Raiser's Edge was used to collect interactions with constituents, perform fundraising, record event participation, and extract email lists for marketing material. It allowed us to centralize information into one system.

RE is being used by the Fundraising department to keep records of all constituents, gifts and events, track relationships, volunteers. The fundraisers use the proposals to track major gift prospects. We record all donations in it, import donations from Luminate Online and other online platforms into Raisers Edge using either RE import tool, RELO plugin or other plugins. The programming department uses it to record constituents. Marketing uses it to pull queries to communicate with constituents.

Raiser's Edge is the fundraising and alumni tracking database for the advancement department. It is also used by staff in the president's office and the business office for constituent and gift management. RE houses all current information on students, alumni, parents, and donors, including contact information, giving history, work and education information, and other data from across the university.

We use Raisers Edge in our Development and Membership departments to track all donations and memberships. It allows us to track these transactions as well as our interactions with our donors and members that help us determine how to move people to higher levels of engagement and deeper levels of investment in our mission.

Our entire organization uses The Raisers Edge. It is a great way to store, access, and organize information. It addresses the business problem of being able to sort donors, volunteers, and program users within the organization. The Raisers Edge is also used to store financial data both for expenses and revenue.

The Raisers Edge is used by the Development department to keep track of important donor and constituent information, such as contact information and relationships with other constituents. It is also used to track gifts made by donors and as a quick point of reference to answer questions about dates contributions were made, addresses to send thank you notes to, and other important information.

I work for the Development department and we have a team of four that uses Raisers Edge for our donor database. I am a site admin. We also have Raisers NXT as an additional resource which takes the database view and turns it into an attractive and user friendly view. We are able to easily and efficiently track donor records and run reports. We are able to run consecutive year reports and other detailed reports.
