This is one of our essentials at the office. It has the perfect amount of functions (without having too many that we never used). We are able to take full advantage of all it has to offer! Fundraising pages are so easy to set up and attractive! It is also nice to have a fundraising coach! Being able to have one on one contact with someone helps our campaigns be there best!

Cons

We didn't take full advantage of having a fundraising coach if we chose to at the start, but now that we use one we can see a difference!

Pros

Easy to use. If I ever have a problem I usually figure out how to fix it before I get a response from the support team.

Cons

The fundraising pages are very limited on what you can do with them. They are perfect for straight peer-to-peer fundraising or an everyday giving campaign but the ticketing page is only good for dinners or simple ticketed events. We have been trying to use it as a registration page for a 5K and it has been very difficult.

I would strongly consider browsing though different options before choosing NFG. There are opportunities out there to get more for your money.

Pros

NFG equips constituents with tools to share the cause and raise funds. Also, for additional cost, you can gain access to a Fundraising Coach.

Cons

Other nonprofit CRM's on the market offer significantly more features for the same price. Although the CRM is highly functional, I feel limited. I'd like to be able to manage grants on the platform as well.

For the price, NFG is very easy to use and has a lot of quality capabilities.

Pros

Network for Good is very user-friendly! You can manage your donor database, event registrations, social fundraising and specific campaigns. Entering individual donations is simple and it offers good report options.

Cons

There is no option for donors to have their own login to change personal information. They use their own credit card processor so it does not integrate with any other gateway. There is no volunteer management capability or grant tracking.

Pros

I have used Network for Good for Nonprofits to collect and track donations obtained through Facebook fundraisers, Charity Navigator, and certain individual donors. The direct deposit option, which is offered at no extra cost is useful in transferring funds.

Cons

The downsides to using Network for Good, particularly to collect donations from Facebook fundraisers, include anonymous giving details (no contact info for further cultivation), a significant deposit lag time, and platform fees.

Ease-of-use

Customer Support
N/A

If you're looking for a donor management system I can't say I'd recommend this one. After stuffing information in a four houred conference call, that is offered as separate classes you can take any time by other donor systems, I felt like they were realizing how behind they were, while still demanding a price tag of excellence they don't yet deliver.

Pros

This program has multiple platforms, so if you only have one need for it you can pay for a separate feature. It keeps great records of all electronic donations you receive. It also allows you to reset your password at a level of ease that most softwares don't provide.

Cons

One of the most confusing interfaces I've dealt with. I had to download donation records once a month and it always took me at least 5-10 minutes to remember what small button to push to get to where I needed to be. I would explore every other option available before I figured out where to go, so I didn't feel like it was labeled in a user friendly manner. They charge for extra features that other nonprofit systems offer for free. I also felt like they took a much bigger cut of the donations than was usual for a system like this. They charge about twice what we paid for donormanagemt, and with a system that already seemed confusing I didn't feel confident paying more for what seemed like much less.

Pros

We switched to Network for Good 3 months ago and we are already seeing the great benefits of transitioning. It is a lot easier to navigate than our old CRM platform. The dashboard feature and ability to produce/export reports is beneficial to our Development needs. The customer service and support is superb and very responsive.

Cons

Network for Good currently does not have a grants management component where our funder and donor contacts, grant deadlines, and grant materials can be managed in the portal.

There are cheaper ways to create a donate page, you just have to do your research.

Pros

It's very easy to use, intuitive, straightforward, easy to set up. They also provide occasional fundraising tips via an e-newsletter that are solid. They offer Peer-to-Peer fundraising as a component of their packages.

Cons

You have to pay for each additional donate page you wish to create beyond what you get in your bundle. They offer different packages, but all have a monthly hosting charge in addition to the standard credit card fee. Once you start using it, it's hard to wean yourself off.

I’ve enjoyed the variety of the e-blast templates. I’ve recently had a very good experience w/ Customer Solutions Specialist, Lenny Wrigley who helped me troubleshoot a very urgent request for one of my donors.

Cons

The poor communication between the NFG Team and the customers paying for the services. One example was NFG changing e-mail servers and not warning the good paying customers. We lost a lot of communication with our donors the day before # givingtuesday

Hi Katy,
Thanks for sharing your feedback about your great experience with our support team member, Lenny!

Regarding poor communication with our customers: Thank you for sharing your frank feedback. Hearing from customers is how we make improvements. Speaking of improvements... We're constantly evolving our customer communication and outreach every week. We are working on some team restructuring which will allow us to have better 1:1 as well as more streamlined mass communication with our donor management customers. Furthermore, our customer marketing manager and product manager have started to put together product update notes and we share them at least once a month (when the notes are released they will be the first thing you see when you log in to the donor management system. Various product updates are also included in the customer version of our weekly Tips Newsletter). We're also increasing the number of customer webinars we provide to share strategy ideas, details on product improvements, as well as an open Q&A time with our customer base. We hope you can join us for as many webinars are you are able!

Our team has fixed the issue that delayed some of our customers' email sends that were scheduled around #GivingTuesday. We apologize for our system sending these emails much later than they were scheduled for. Our team identified and fixed the issue after this experience: We have more dedicated servers at the ready to support a large volume of emails being sent through our system at once. Because of feedback from customers like you, we worked quickly to make this improvement before the biggest three giving days of the year (Dec 29,30,31) and we had very few timing issues with email sends after we made this improvement.

If you ever have product feedback or questions for us, you can always reach the team (and most likely Lenny!) by clicking the blue dot to open up the messaging tool in your donor management system. We look forward to hearing from you!

Overall, we are very pleased with N4G and what they do. We like the service we receive and are grateful that they are always ready to help

Pros

N4G is always helpful, sending me useful white papers on best practices for each season of fundraising, as well as providing excellent customer service when I do have a question. They walked me through step by step when I inquired about upgrading our CRM with them. They're also used by some of the organizations we work with, so it's nice to easily integrate with them.

Cons

We currently have 13K records and we want to see that number grow, but the N4G platform doesn't have the capacity to grow at a reasonable price for us.

Network for Good is a great payment processor. We use it in conjunction with our Crowdrise account for our third party and peer-to-peer fundraising events.

Pros

Features easy to read donation reports that captures all of the essential donor information. Simple export feature for donations and adjustable data ranges to focus in on specific periods.

Cons

The system's design feels old and some updates would be useful. For instance, most pages cannot fit entirely on a screen and scrolling is required to fully navigate the site.

I'm very surprised that this system doesn't seem to enable nonprofits to focus on their donor organizations (like corporate sponsors). We've had quite a challenge with this and may have to give up soon.

Pros

The concept seems great for connecting donors, communications, activities, etc. Seems very focused on individuals so not sure if it will end up working for us.

Cons

We can't even get our database accurately converted because their system doesn't seem to recognize organizations, just individuals. So we have spent a few months dealing with this issue, trying to get them to make changes/corrections...still working on it.

I’m sorry to hear we have fallen short of meeting your expectations!

Your feedback is really important to us so I wanted to make sure I let you know how we’ve responded to solve these problems for you and other similar nonprofits. We do have the ability to track companies in the donor management system. It sounds like our training webinars and 1:1 conversations with your customer success manager didn’t make this clear. We’ll make sure to highlight this more in the future.

I chatted with our data import team about the complexities and miscommunication with your data import which I understand is frustrating. They did let me know that we were able to deliver the data to you in a way that does work but I understand that it didn’t 100% meet your expectations the first time. And we are sorry for the hold up! I also wanted to let you know that we have hired more data import specialists to handle more complex data imports in a timely manner.

Donor database is not part of basic service. however everyone who works with such type of software very soon realizes that it is a necessity.

We’re so glad to hear that you enjoy our online resources and that the peer to peer fundraising campaign set up was an easy process!

We just adjusted some of our software packages and pricing to help nonprofits understand what kind of help and tools they can get from us to better maintain donor relationships, send emails, and raise money online. We will reach out to set up a conversation about maybe switching to a better package that will fit your needs.


Thank you so much!

Seemed to work ok if you were looking to only collect donations but if you need to do dues or tickets it's very limiting.

Pros

Back end is pretty easy to use. Ideal use is Only for donations. I inherited this software and tried to make it work for our needs.

Cons

Doesn't work for dues or event fees. Our members of our association can not make donations by law so this was a problem when the receipt only says donation and can't be changed.

  Response: Elizabeth, Network for Good

Hi Jennifer,
We are very glad to hear that the system has been easy to use and learn by someone who inherited it!

However, you’re right about dues. The system is not built to manage membership fees. You can create some workarounds to make it work. But, ultimately, it sounds like there was a either a change in what kind of tool you needed or there was a disconnect with what our product can do and what you needed to get the job done with dues and membership fees. We’re sorry for this lack of communication on the type of tasks the software was built to do.

Network for Good’s software is built for 501c3 organizations to help them raise money from donors and to track donor and corporate sponsor information in the donor management system so they can keep in contact with those donors via email, text, and direct mail communication channels. We do have an event ticketing page tool where you can sell tickets to events. If you’d like a tour of that, let us know!

Our overall experience with Network for Good was good, but did not provide an upgraded platform when we were looking for a better solution. Our organization ultimately switched to another platform that offered a more flawless integration with our existing website.

Pros

Network for Good is great with the basics and provides a platform for online giving that our organization used for years.

Cons

A few years ago, when we were last utilizing this software, the platform didn't provide advanced features that our nonprofit was desiring. The interface was also not very user-friendly and did not embed into our existing website.

Overall, I'm beyond satisfied with this product and I feel that the value of the product I receive is well worth the cost. I would recommend this product to others, especially individuals who are responsible for fundraising or donor tracking. This product is comparable to other software products and better than most.

Pros

This company offers personal coaching for non-profit users to best utilize the software to get the most benefit for your dollar. No matter what size company, this software can be personalized to fit your needs. The value of the software is determined by how the software is used. I prefer to implement just this software for all my needs and I eliminated spreadsheets, paper files, and all other reporting systems.

Cons

There were a few times that I needed to contact customer support and the hold time is sometimes a bit long. I wish there were more training resources for users to troubleshoot on their own.

I am somewhat technically challenged! The support is wonderful to help resolve any issues I have. We recently had a benefit and it was so easy to collect monies online through the network. We also were able to send out reminders and acknowledgements.

It takes me a while to remember how to set up an event!! It's my problem and I know one phone call would resolve it, but I struggle on my own.

Having the ability to host our donation management platform and our donation portal page with one entity is a money saver, too!

Pros

As the primary user of the platform at our charity, I find the ease of analyzing data and the process of generating reports and custom donor lists seamless, extremely use friendly, and are huge time savers for me.

Cons

As for the donor page, the one thing which is lacking is to have a corporate match functionality built into the process to make it easy for the donors to determine if their company has a program, how to find it, and how to engage it.

Pros

For three years, I worked at grassroots nonprofit that has been around for more than 2 decades. Network for Good was the donation service we used to accept all online donations.

Trusted among lifetime donor/philanthropist types
It seems like many boomer-aged donors who have been engaged in long-term philanthropy are familiar with and trust the website.

Donation Pages:
Donors can indicate whether they want to make a one-time donation or a recurring monthly donation. As an admin you can pre-set donation amounts and/or let donor indicate any amount that they would like to donate (although there is a minimum donation amount). Network for Good also allows you to customize a set number of campaign pages for no additional charge to their standard subscription fee. As a legacy customer, our non-profit enjoyed the benefit of a grandfathered-in lower monthly rate in addition to access to ConstantContact, which was great.

Reports:
You could pull donor reports (download as excel) by dates and campaign type and then sort by criteria.

Customer service was very good. Wait times were always short and phone reps were very knowledgeable and able to help.

Cons

The interface for customizing donation pages was truly terrible. Even though Network for Good provided design template options, it was very challenging to make the text appear on the page as it was supposed to. You had to go through like 10 different screen categories, in order, and fill out little forms containing the information that you would want to be displayed. When you specify donation amounts, you need to enter them in the order that is to appear lest you want to spend thirty minutes toggling arrows only to have the site freeze.

If the nonprofit I was at didn't have the legacy version that included ConstantContact, I would have recommended getting rid of the subscription. The donation processing fee is no less than that of any other payment processing service. In fact, other sites that do not charge a monthly usage fee (gofundme, eventbrite, etc.) provide much better functionality and even other bonus services.

I get that the site wants to be super secure and that as nonprofit you want to collect as much donor info as possible, but it would be great if people could make a donation without having to fill out ALL of their personal information: name, address + payment address (if different), phone and email. I think that this deters younger donors or anyone who wants to donate quickly/impulse donations.

I loved the idea of having all of our donor information in one place with the capacity to email directly out of the software.

Cons

It is hugely expensive and not overly user friendly. It did not live up to all of the sales hype. Uses Constant Contact as the emailing program with little ability to customize emails...not the same Constant Contact interface. Customer service was responsive but always in sales mode vs problem solving or helping.

From my end, I use the templates, donor management, fundraising pages, and donor coach. I highly recommend anyone considering the software to try to use all its capabilities.

Pros

If you aren't a fundraising expert, like me - Network for Good is perfect to fit your needs in the nonprofit world. We are a small nonprofit - therefore, Network for Good's templates and customer service allows us to fill in the gaps within the development. As well, we utilize the Donor Coach function and it helps when not having a full-time fundraising director.

Cons

Sometimes I wish some of their templates were more customizable (i.e. changing the color of a button in a newsletter template or rearranging the fundraising pages to my own format). Other that, I love the service!

Having all of our contacts in one place is amazing. Being able to keep records of contacts with donors. Unlimited email and text blasts. Email integration between google and the data base to have important conversations readily at hand. Donation pages, event and peer-to-peer will revolutionize our fundraising. Unlimited users is big enough to allow for lots of helpers. This is a wonderful tool to help our collaboration of non-profits work together more efficiently!

Pros

The comprehensiveness of the software and how wonderfully integrated it is...from donor information to email blasts. It is so easy to get started and to learn to use. And, their customer service rocks! Help is just a chat away...always quick and timely.

I love how user friendly it is and how all-encompassing the software is. I also love that I can get in touch with customer support easily and ask even the smallest questions about how to maximize my use of the software.

Cons

I wish that it could do email through MailChimp, rather than Constant Contact. MailChimp is a little more user friendly.

Pros

I like the ease of access- almost all the features are very simple and require no training. They also have great customer service

Cons

The only issue we've had is with some of the more advanced features, they take a bit of learning and training.

I was fed up with our previous donor management system. Its user interface was unintuitive. Writing reports was like a physics class. Zero value. I sat in on a demo for NFG and requested a private one. I was SOLD immediately with its beautiful simplicity. Bar none, NFG is the ONLY software system that has immediately helped us raise money. My customer service rep and fund raising expert are beyond helpful. If you're a non-profit looking for a better way to leverage your donor data, go to NFG. These people are the bomb.

Pros

Ease of use, value, customer service are all five-star.

Cons

There are none so far.

Advice to Others

If you're a non-profit, check out NFG.

The Donor Path experience has been very positive with our Fundraising Expert. We appreciate the easy-to-use donor management program and look forward to getting up to speed with it so that the amount of time put into it actually turns into an increase in donations.

Pros

Donor management, and Donor Path

Cons

The templates for everyday giving, events and peer to peer don't seem up as up to date as they might be.

Advice to Others

The templates for direct mail are cumbersome, to have to download each pdf and then print individually. But I know you are working on improving this.
