Overall Satisfaction with The Raisers Edge

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.
  • Queries: This is an amazing tool that helps group the donors/gifts that you need to generate reports. I am able to be as general or specific as I want when grouping my info.
  • Export: This feature allows me to take my group (or query) and output any and all information I want to see on the particular group.
  • Canned Reports: I love that there are pre-built templates for general reporting areas that I can use and customize without having to re-create the wheel on my own.
  • Consecutive years giving is one of the biggest challenges in using Raisers Edge. There is no easy way to do this...
  • It allows us to track ROI and any moves/visits made by our development officers easily
The Raisers Edge is well suited for anyone doing fundraising. It keeps things stored neatly and is easy to pull out information when it is needed (provided the information is correct and clean when it goes in). It may not be suited for small or short term fundraising but it does definitely have advantages.
