Are donor management spreadsheets slowing you down?

Feeling overwhelmed by the rows and columns of your ever-growing donor management spreadsheet?  Are you struggling to remember when a specific donor last gave to your mission or wondering when the right time to reach out to them again might be?

While Spreadsheets can work to manage donor data, they aren't designed for it. 

When was the last time a spreadsheet told you to reach out to a donor?

A nonprofit CRM like DonorDock integrates donation and donor data, automates engagement, and coaches you on donor stewardship.

Never miss a milestone with DonorDock's ActionBoard®. With customizable Smart Nudges to remind you when it's time to take action, you can prioritize your most important outreach opportunities.

"Sooooooooooo much better than an Excel spreadsheet! Some of the fields that are listed were items of information we hadn't thought to track previously."

"Prior to DonorDock we were relying on spreadsheets and this has allowed our nonprofit to be much more organized and efficient."

"We've experienced maintaining contact information on a spreadsheet, and the frustration that follows when columns on the spreadsheet become misaligned. No more."

Our take on Spreadsheets vs DonorDock?

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.
