DonorDock is designed to help you manage donors, accept donations, and develop long-term relationships through email marketing. Spreadsheets can only be used to track gifts and donors.
When compared, DonorDock outperforms Spreadsheets on features and customer support.
Organizations often use spreadsheets to manage donors because they are familiar and usually free. While spreadsheets may seem like a simple solution, many users find they end up being more complicated than expected. This is because spreadsheets were not designed to be used as a donor database, communication center, or relationship manager.
DonorDock simplifies the process of donor management and is a popular choice because it is easy to use. It is especially affordable, even for small organizations on tight budgets. DonorDock provides a system that is simple enough for your whole team to use, and powerful enough to help you take your nonprofit to the next level.
Spreadsheets have the advantage of being free for most organizations. For many small nonprofits, this is an incredibly important benefit! However, the price tag doesn't capture the actual costs of not having a true donor database. Without an effective system for following up with Donors, organizations lose potential gifts, fail to cultivate major donors, and waste time trying to understand the big-picture view of their fundraising. Organizations that want to cultivate relationships with donors often benefit from a donor management system.
A standout feature that DonorDock offers is the ActionBoard® which helps you keep all your tasks and to-dos in one place. Smart Nudges remind you when it is time to take action with specific donors. You can customize which actions you are alerted to, so you are prioritizing what is important to your nonprofit.
With DonorDock you can schedule bulk or single emails, automate emails to send a receipt and thank you after receiving a gift or send an email directly from the ActionBoard®.
