CRM fundraising software helps nonprofits and social businesses maximize their efficiency while continuing to keep important stakeholders engaged and involved with their mission.
Nonprofit fundraising software does this by collecting a broad range of important information about prospective and current donors, volunteers and supporters. It organizes donor data and can integrate with other software (such as email marketing) to help you manage all your fundraising and donation activities from a single place. A fundraising software can also link this data to your CRM software to help you get a 360-degree view of your nonprofit.

Key staff who may use fundraising management software include:
Fundraising — Fundraising staff use nonprofit fundraising software to manage all contact points with prospects. Fundraising software gives teams who manage funding a clear idea of current and prospective donors through member profiles. These profiles contain information about each donor’s giving history, event attendance, and even personal interests and hobbies. This increased insight helps fundraisers personalize their interactions with donors and can keep teams updated on current conversations so different teams aren’t approaching the same donors for the same information or asks. Grant writers can use this software to track public and private grant-related deadlines throughout the submission process. Through donor management software, fundraising teams can target specific people for events, gift renewals, or other related stewardship tasks.
Marketing and communications — Marketing and communications staff rely on insights from donor profiles housed in a nonprofit fundraising software. The best fundraising software for nonprofits allows teams to segment target groups and view data on lapsed donors, previous volunteers, program-specific donors, and so on. Marketers can use this information to create relevant content for any given demographic or data parameter. For example, marketing teams can tailor donation amounts to age groups (and make larger asks for donors who have previously contributed large amounts). Fundraising event software also allows them to tailor event invitations for invitees who attended the previous year.
Event Management — Some platforms even include fundraising event software, which helps your event management staff monitor event attendance and performance. This can be very useful for fundraising galas or special donor events as you can issue invitations through the software and track the outreach efforts and funds raised through these events separately.
Finance — Finance staff use non profit fundraising software as an additional tool to keep track of revenue and expenses, in addition to their own nonprofit accounting software. The best fundraising software for nonprofits will usually include easy integrations with popular accounting platforms like QuickBooks – so finance staff can upload and share this data easily with nonprofit leaders in other verticals who require the information. Finance and fundraising staff will often work together to conduct monthly, quarterly, or annual updates to ensure data that is tracked in the nonprofit fundraising software matches up with the accounting software records.
Fundraising software and donor management software are often used interchangeably and most programs will include fundraising software and tools for nonprofits. Donor management software might focus more on collecting information from donors, tracking their contributions and receipting while fundraising software can include simple communications tools to help fundraising teams connect with donors directly from the platform. There’s also fundraising event software which includes features to help your teams organize and track fundraising events.
Sumac’s donor management software includes fundraising software and tools for nonprofits that help manage your fundraising as well as track donors.

There are two different types of fundraising software for nonprofits: on-premise and online fundraising software.
On-premise software hosts the CRM fundraising software on the nonprofit organization’s servers and can only be accessed by those physically present in the office. This is extremely useful for nonprofits with high-security needs. However, it does take more time to set up and requires increased IT resources. Nonprofits are also responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the CRM fundraising software, which can cause costs to run high.
Cloud-based or online fundraising software, also popularly known as software-as-a-service (SaaS), hosts your fundraising data on the software provider’s servers. This keeps the data secure, while having the additional benefit of being able to access information from anywhere. Nonprofits can grant different levels of access to staff to ensure confidential information is not shared and the upkeep and maintenance of the online fundraising software is taken care of by the vendor. This includes getting new updates so your software is always improving and teams are given continuous support.
Yes! Sumac’s nonprofit donation management software offers users secure ‘access from anywhere’ via an online database that’s connected to the Sumac App on your computer. Your data is stored on world-class Amazon Web Services (AWS) which keeps your files secure while also enabling staff members to easily access the fundraising software from anywhere. Donors and members will also benefit from the direct integration of Sumac’s embedded web-forms on your website.
