Overall Satisfaction with Blackbaud eTapestry

We used eTapestry as a donor CRM. We gained and tracked donations, as well as other communications, financial, and demographic data about current and prospective donors. I was the primary user, but the product was already in place when I joined the organization. WE also used it to send some donor communications out, from invitations to thank you notes.


  • Donor tracking
  • Donation tracking
  • Storing information to segment donor communications


  • Email capability could be improved
  • The interface could be updated
  • Needs more capabilities around soft credits and sustaining gifts
  • Time saving
  • Improved frequency of donor communications
  • More robust donor tracking
I gave eTapestry this rating because I didn't have any major complaints or concerns. All the ways that eTapestry can improve are really minor, really just adding small features to donation and donor tracking. It has the most room for improvement in its email design. It could be a lot more flexible with more options.

Overall Blackbaud eTapestry is a really solid CRM option for nonprofits with a mid-sized budget. It's a great younger/less powerful cousin of some of Blackbaud's even more popular products. If you haven't considered it yet, check it out! It's nice because it is specifically made for fundraising and designed with our needs in mind.
