A donor management system can be the most important investment a nonprofit makes.

We’ll guide you as you think through the major decision points that go into selecting a new system including what to track, how the system manages data, ease of use, and cost.

We will be introducing our publication, A Consumer's Guide to Low-Cost Fundraising Software, launching Tuesday, September 29. We'll have a panel available to explore the latest trends and best practices in selecting a software. You'll learn they types of questions to ask in order to determine your nonprofit's needs.
