Great to grow your fundraising and stay on top of donor thank yous.

PROS

I love the look of the software - the dashboard, the profiles of the constituents. I like the lifetime giving chart and the level of giving - hot or cold. I love the reminder to call first-time donors.

CONS

The learning curve for reporting and getting the information that you need out.

Reasons for switching to Bloomerang

For donations and tracking Bloomerang was far superior in its ability to help with campaigns, emails and much better interface for the donor tracking.

An excellent software for the money.

From start to finish Bloomerang is an excellent software. Customer support is highly responsive, training is extensive and free, handles event tracking, grant tracking, major gift fundraising, contact management, donor segmentation, reporting and filtering, mobile app, and integrates with multiple third-party apps. The user interface is sleek and graphic-heavy. Constituent and gift visibility is superb.

PROS

Donor retention, donor cultivation, moves management, strategic plan goals and the ability to track progress against goals. Ease of use, graphical user interface is colorful and elegant. Displays highly useful information right where you need it.

CONS

They Bloomerang customer support team and the tech team are very responsive and always making improvements based upon customer feedback. One niggly problem is that you cannot email to multiple email addresses for a given constituent. You can store them, but it will only email to the primary email. Also, you can't report on and download multiple emails for a given constituent. With many married couples who are together in a single record (not a household) there are often several different emails.

Reason for choosing Bloomerang

Bloomerang offered the most comprehensive donor cultivation package plus visibility of consistent engagement, contact management and gift management. The reporting is also superior.

Reasons for switching to Bloomerang

It was cumbersome, not easy to use, too complex, and didn't handle custom fields as well.

Bloomerang is awesome!

Bloomerang really helped to organize our donor relationships. All of us knew who spoke to whom and the financial background of the donors. We didn't have to have the donor repeat information because everything was logged in the system. We could also put our efforts into those who had a connection to our cause and the financial means to donate more if asked.

PROS

I was a part of selecting Bloomerang for a nonprofit I worked for. It was midline for cost and midline for options. That actually met our criteria. We didn't have any experience with donor software so we wanted something intuitive and easy to use. That's Bloomerang. I really liked the donor search because we could evaluate a person's capacity to donate. That helped us to be intentional with our efforts.

CONS

I would imagine that the options offered are not as robust as some other platforms however, we never used a donor software before and this was more than we needed. So we felt we could grow with the program.

Reason for choosing Bloomerang

Bloomerang was so much more affordable and intuitive to use. It's not as robust as Blackbaud but it's also not confusing to figure out. It was a very easy switch for us. Blackbaud was very time consuming to set up and costly for features we didn't need.

Reasons for switching to Bloomerang

The spreadsheet was such a pain to maintain. This software makes it easy to keep track of who you need to contact, what conversations have taken place, and any background information we needed on our donors. It also kept track of the donations like our spreadsheet. It was just so much more robust that a simple spreadsheet.
