Donor management systems are a nonprofit necessity. Not only do they help you find and engage donors, but they help you keep track of and effectively communicate with existing donors. In fact, donor management systems are extremely handy during year-end when you need to provide contribution summaries to your donors or ask for a final year end donation. In this blog, we will cover the three best donor management systems and their amazing features.
Network For Good
