Donor Tools Software


 

Donor Tools is a cloud-based donor management solution developed by Higher Pixels. it caters to small and mid-size nonprofits, charities and faith-based organization. The solution allows fundraisers to track contributions from multiple donors.

Users can create online fundraising pages with donation forms. The donations are processed through PayPal and automatically logged in the system. Once processed, donors are emailed to confirm receipt of their donation and fundraisers can generate donation reports that filter data by fund, source, donation type and date. Donor Tools also integrates with QuickBooks that allows donor data to be exported and processed to fulfill accounting and tax reporting requirements.

Donor tagging features allow fundraisers to place donors into user-defined groups, which enables them to compile targeted email, mail and phone lists based on donor history, interests and involvement. Integration with MailChimp allows fundraisers to manage online marketing activities and track interactions.

Services offered are billed monthly and support is available via email.

Pros

It keeps all of the donor information organized and easy to access. Makes recognizing your donors easy

Sometimes doubles up donors and search for donor anoints are could be more intuitive. I feel that it should be issuable out of the box

I tell every small non-profit organization to consider DonorTools. For the price, you cannot find a better product, for a small shop on a budget.

Pros

The price. The price cannot be beaten. For a donor management CRM that covers all the bases, and provides you all the necessary functionality to run a small development team, look no further. This has everything you will need.

Cons

The reports that DonorTools can run are standard, but a bit limited for typical donor CRMs. Admittedly, you get what you pay for, but you can still want some Cadillac features, though you're paying for a Ford.

Donortools is a fairly easy to understand program with a minimal to moderate level of understanding of programs that consolidate donors and other forms of contacts.

Pros

easily synchronize contact database with many other programs

Cons

Limitations on conducting large-scale customizations of contacts on file.

I have to say it is simple and easy use. You can check donor’s history and have a perfect sync with PayPal and Mailchimp which is fantastic nowadays, above all if your organization is small.
You can get the list of donors and the amount given, and use tags to identify them easily.

Cons

Annual reports are still messy (even though they have improved the software notably). The export feature is a complete failure, though. Taxes aren’t integrated. You can’t remove people from the data and can’t customize much.

It's easy to enter payment information for our records and tag our appropriate donors with the necessary labels. It keeps things organized and it also allows us to make mass lists/letters/and documentation of specific donors that our tailored to specific needs.

Pros

Donor Tools provides helpful organizational modules for collecting information from donors. It also provides easy forms that can be exported for compiling mass letters to our donors.

Cons

Sometimes there can be a little confusion on certain names of specific tags.

Donor Tools made it possible for us, a small but vigorous nonprofit religious community, to handle our donations and donor information in an efficient and helpful way--at a most reasonable cost. The developer had experience with nonprofits, but I was able to give input early on about language and how we were using it which benefited the application--and other users. Frankly, we were not able to afford the "big boys" and Donor Tools gives us a lot for our money. We really appreciate it!

Pros

Very responsive to my needs. Easy to search database, to input info, to retrieve info, to write thank you letters and to print reports.

Cons

There's only one thing I want that it doesn't *yet* have: a donation memo that shows on reports but NOT on tax receipts. I have requested this feature, and since DT creator has been responsive in the past, I expect it will be added at some point.

Cons

Do the website does not looks as crisp as other it is truly easy and very user-friendly. I truly can't say anything negative. For our organization size, this is perfect.

As a nonprofit board member and consultant with years of development experience, I have introduced Donor Tools to three small organizations with great success. All the functionality a small shop needs, with none of the bloated, hard-to-learn and rarely used bells and whistles that add cost to "premium" tools.

Cons

my screen freezes sometimes during contact address input (but that might be a problem on my end with my browser)

The benefits to me have been making it easier to manage my organizations relationships with its donor base.

Pros

I love the simplicity of Donor Tools. So many donor management packages (or CRM packages in general) are so feature-rich that their complexity makes them problematic, and not cost-effective, for smaller organizations like ours.

Cons

Often a piece of software's greatest strength also informs its weaknesses. In this case, there are a few social integrations I would love to see happen.

Also, cleaning up data is a huge task, even with a relatively small database. We have, on occasion, needed to clean up records, merge duplicates, etc. A slightly beefier data scrubbing toolkit would be nice.

Finally, handling households, couples, families...these are things that are important to us, and we do it with tagging. That's okay, but it feels like something that should be a central feature to a software package designed to manage information about people.
