Donarius Software


 

Donarius is a church management software solution available for on-premise deployment that serves both churches and other non-profit organizations.

Donarius lets users keep track of members, contributions, pledges and more. Users can enter all offerings and donations by name or envelope number and they can track loose offerings as well.

The solution offers envelope printing, so churches can print their own offering envelopes rather than ordering them.

Donarius can send monthly and yearly statements out to members or donors and it can generate various types of reports. Users can personalize letters, emails and text messages to help engage members. A module for pre-authorized donations (ACH) automatically enters recurring donations.

Donarius also includes a module for membership management and users can print a photo directory. This system is priced per organization in perpetuity, plus yearly upgrade costs.

Pros

I did not have to buy a complete church management program, just what I needed to do the church directory. Support staff was very helpful with the problem stated below.

Cons

Some of my photographs did not easily insert into the directory and I had to call for help several times.
I cannot print the directory in a normal 8.5x11 format.

Pros

I like that I can find information about clients easily and can change information as needed. Has many relevant fields to choose from. Administrator help easy to get. Able to print tax receipts easily, able to find weekly - monthly statistics as needed easily. Easy to setup software for my specific needs easily. Gave chart statistics at end of year.

Cons

I needed to buy a second software package (minimal cost) in order to track 2 sets of statistics. It was a cheap solution to my needs.

Benefits are that on the donations, you have a variety of ways to get reports and the email to church members are wonderful.

Pros

This software has a lot of functionally, just have to learn how to use them, but the support team it great.

Cons

Only thing is you have to get use to using the software. Having trouble putting picture associated with names.

easy to track weekly church donations and easy to generate annual tax receipts

Pros

User-friendy - the software is easy to understand and easy to use for basic bookkeeping functions. It is also easy to process annual tax receipts.

Cons

The software is very limited. If you're looking for basic functions, it operates well, but when looking for more-detailed accounting of church finances, it is not possible.

easy to use and to train other users.
Donarius is at affordable cost and reasonable priced.
Updates are always available in improving the software.

Cons

There are not too many cons about this software.
Maybe software should combine with an simple accounting program for small churches.
This combination will make bookkeeper much easier.

ease of use and support

Pros

I find, as one not too much into computors, that the ease of use is the highlight of this programme. Any additions or subtractions of members are very straight forward. Year end statements and receipts are quite easy to produce. Cost of programme very reasonable and always get a quick response if I have any questions.

Cons

When entering new members they are stored in the order you enter them and not in envelope number sequence. You don't do this too often so not a big problem. Also although you can print out labels of members you can't print a full sheet of labels with church name and address.

Pros

Easy to use. Easy to install. Produces tax receipts at the end of the year. The software also produces a number of "built in reports" that allows me to produce various reports for the board. I believe that Donarius saves me a ton of time over the course of the fiscal year. Your data is easily backed up to a USB stick which i would highly recommend.

Cons

Only small issue is I am a MAC user and its not available for MAC unless you load Windows on your MAC, which I don't wish to do. I purchased a Windows laptop to run the software.

Keeps track of donations and helps me track projected givings in future years.

Pros

The categories make sense.
Nice that the reports can be exported to other programs.
Clear text; much easier to read than the previous update.

Cons

One is still limited as to how many separate categories can be assigned to one church account. In my experience, donors like to see their wishes honoured in a clear manner.

Helps us to manage our finances and tax receipts. Could not live without it (maybe barely)

Pros

- Updates whenever needed
- excellent custumer support and service
- great workflow handling
- very affordable
- easy backup and restore (in case you are getting a new PC)

Cons

UI (look and feel) could be more modern, but works great. All needed functions are implemented. I do not see any other Cons...

Time savings. Used to use NCR recording by hand. Now, I can run totals quickly for reports.

Pros

Easy to use. Interfaces with Vanco Solutions (our online donation system). Customer service is excellent!

Cons

Occasionally, while entering donations, the 'sync' is interrupted. After entering a donation, the software usually goes to the donor number/envelope number ready for the next search; however, sometimes it stays in the amount recording field after hitting enter causing an error in the donation amount.

Easy to learn and use. Customer support is efficient. Running tax receipts at year end is easy. It basically covers all our needs for donor management.

Cons

Have to input donor's full name to search. It makes searching for a donor difficult if I don't remember the full name of a donor.

On the 'Add/Edit Donors' window you can search by part of the name. Each time you click on the 'Find Next' button it will find the next person that matches. Keep on clicking until you get to the person you are looking for.

Easy to enter contributions and at the end of the year to print the contribution statements for each individual who contributed.

Pros

New people who have given in the offering report can be entered easily as you are entering your offering report. Program is easy to use. Has a back up system in place. Several reports pre-entered into the program for ease of use.

Cons

I did not get much help with creating my own report or how to create my own contribution statement since they said you could have one custom done report.

Donarius does the job of recording our donations, with the option of making more than one account to donate to; it is easy to use, and the help files are easy to understand; it doesn't have a lot of fancy extra features that just get in the way and confuse me; it was easy for me to figure out printing tax receipts, without needing help. Tech support / customer support is phenomenal!! This is the best tech support I have ever received for any software. I am not using the program to its fullest potential yet, but looking forward to expanding my knowledge of it, and putting it to greater use.

Pros

I like the customer support. And I like that it is a basic program that does its job without having a bunch of extra features that get in the way.

Cons

I don't like having to back up files one at a time .... I would like to put my backup drive into my backup computer and have it backup all the files at once.

Have used this software for a few years. It is easy to use and the price is very reasonable. I am the treasurer for a small Baptist church. I have 41 donors on the software. It works great for our church and the reports are just what we need. I recommend it for any small church that needs an easy affordable software to keep up with their contributions.
