DonorView is a cloud-based donation and membership management software for nonprofit organizations. It provides member-information management tools, online surveys, email marketing, forms and reports.

DonorView’s contact management module allows users to manage member data and volunteer information, track donors, committee lists and more. Users can store profile information, keep track of relationships between members and staff and store documents.

The fundraising tool helps track donation details, and users can categorize donations based on payment type. Users can include “Donate Now” buttons in emails, websites, surveys, newsletters and social media sites. The button leads to a form that captures donor information and can automatically import data into a customer relationship management (CRM) tool.

Users can also create events online, and DonorView enables users to manage registrations, collect payments and promote events. The integrated email marketing tool lets users configure email templates, create recipient lists and post to social media.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    So far my experience has been good, although I ultimately decided to use another software long term.

    Pros

    Easy to track donor contact information, giving history, reporting, and other valuable data

    Cons

    It took me some time to understand how to use the software and I've had some technical issues with it, but nothing that technical support could not handle

    Easy to track donations and constituents. Transition was easy.

    Pros

    Easy to use. DonorView already has incorporated the items a non-profit is looking for in its software. Great on-line videos on how to use the program.

    Cons

    Still learning how to use event management and tracking. Does not have a way for user to import data.

    DonorView is a single repository for everything. Spreadsheets and e-mail are no longer acceptable when a tool like this is available.

    Cons

    The e-mail newsletter functionality is a little querky. The resulting messages appear very different with different browsers.

    It is great that we are able to customize all of our reports and we also love the amount of detail we can add to our constituent profiles. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Cons

    I would like to be able to pull cumulative giving in a report. Their email customization can be very glitchy.

    I got a more comprehensive system for equal or less money. Got more stuff than I had with my old system, such as the donor pages, and the donor portal. It is much more visually pleasing and can manage grants much better.

    Pros

    Reporting is easier, visuals are nicer, grant management is great. Excited to use the peer to peer system. Its very comprehensive and you don't have to pay extra to add all the components.

    Cons

    The only thing I don't like is that you can't upload a template to be mail merged. Maybe they'll fix that soon!

    Easy to use. Help resources available in text and videos. Support team responds immediately. Never feel unsupported. Features suit non-profits and they implement new ones to meet the needs of such entities, such as the new Silent Auction app.

    Cons

    Wish it worked with Safari/Mac better. Unable to delete more than one constituent record at a time, but support was willing to assist.

    This software has allowed our organization to pull several different processes (Mail Chimp, Event Brite, Pay Pal, Stripe, Access database, Excel spreadsheets, etc.) into just one program. It is saving us time, which in turn saves us money. It is helping us be more efficient, which leads to more productivity.

    Pros

    Ease of use. Donor View implementation team has been very helpful and made the transition process easy.

    Cons

    Automatic billing. We would prefer to receive an electronic invoice, review it, contact the company with any discrepancies, and then pay as we wish.

    We are only now getting started on this software but I envision being able to have a better picture of our big donors verses small donors and using this for sponsorships and to build better and more relationships overall with our donor base. We are excited about the peer to peer sharing for donations/sponsorships as well.

    Pros

    The customer service that came with this software was great. Being a nonprofit without a great deal of Tech training we found this software to be user friendly and easy to navigate.

    Cons

    Trying to get all of our data to fit under the amount needed for the lesser cost. We had 9 years worth of donor information and a tight budget so we only converted over 4 years worth to keep our records under the specific criteria in cost.

    It allows me to capture a great deal of information about our clients and package it in a variety of different ways. Has a breadth of services so provides a more one stop shop from integrating with our website to receive payments, customer tracking, email campaigns and analysis.

    Cons

    Isn't easy to track some date specific events (partner renewal dates). To be honest, many of my issues have been answered or are on the radar of the development team.

    Pros

    It has made donation recording and reporting so easy. I can manage our database easily and it's made doing mail out's much simpler. I can track who is opening and reading, how many times. The software is multifunctional and I like having all those options in one place. The support team are always quick to respond to any questions I might have. I'm still working hard on making full use of all that Donorview has to offer us.

    Cons

    Some of the reports are not intuitive to run, I've had trouble getting out the reports that I wanted, also running out a mailing list. I know keep a master mailing list outside of donorview, and have to update that address list in two places. I've had some trouble building templates for marketing emails. I wish there were more variations on building blocks for emails.

    The software does not offer an ACH functionality directly through their website. You are able to link up to a different website and tie the two together, but I would rather not pay an additional fee for the functionality.

    Having one database that performs the same functions as our previous three, it is extremely user friendly.

    Pros

    So far, myself and my organization has had a great experience with Donorview. The transition period was very simple from our old database since Donorview provided ample support and answered all of our questions and concerns over the transition while also merging our data very quickly. Whenever we have any questions or issues the support team quickly responds and helps resolve any issues. My team and I are always excited to see the new features and updates donorview creates as it is always bigger and better. Thank you to the donorview team for such an amazing diverse software!

    Cons

    The reporting is the part that we struggle the most with, it is not as robust as our old database so that has been a struggle in terms of acquiring donor retention reports with ease. I know that this will soon be an issue of the past as the software continues to develop.

    DonorView far surpasses our previous system for record keeping. In addition, it has allowed us to eliminate a variety of outside subscriptions because of its multi-faceted capabilities. Since implementing this software, we are more organized, which allows us to be more successful as an organization!

    Pros

    The database is extremely intuitive and user friendly which has made the process of transitioning that much easier. The staff at DonorView is amazing and provided immediate and thorough support for every question I threw their way. I will recommend to anyone I know!

    Keeps track of our donors and all their information, you can run reports, make reports into excel spreadsheet.

    Sometimes it can be a little slow when you are putting in the information. I wish it had a prompt that would let you know if you have entered the same donor twice.

    The thing I like most about Donor View is their quick and friendly customer support. Any question or issue that I have ever had over the past two years was able to be solved immediately. Their software makes it easy for us to manage multiple moving parts of our organization in one place. We are so grateful for the relationship that we have with Donor View and are looking forward to utilizing their software in even more complex ways in the coming year!

    Cons

    I would like to see improvements on the Email and Social Marketing platform. Uploading images, resizing and changing fonts should be easier. I also would like to see it so that when being viewed on cell phones, it renders correctly and fonts are the right size. It would be nice to just drag and drop photos, crop and then have them be sized correctly. I use a program called Canva, which sizes photos really easily- I would like if your program mirrored theirs.

    Having our data in one place and so searchable. The reporting feature is fabulous and the peer to peer works well!

    Pros

    We've been live with Donor view for a couple of months but it's already made our event planning and execution so much easier. We also employed the peer to peer for our most recent fundraiser and it worked quite well, as both an administrator and user it was simple and effective. Not to mention it's the first time we've had all our data in one place, which is just awesome! I also can't say enough about the customer service! It's swift and always helpful.

    We were able to combine multiple databases by moving to DonorView. Also, we became more mobile with the cloud-based DonorView.

    Pros

    DonorView provides a better service at a fair price when compared to our last software program we used for donations. The customer support is fantastic, they are fast to respond, always friendly, and rapidly solve problems.

    Cons

    I do not like the high credit card processing fees. The learning curve has been a lot longer than expected.
