Get an Excel template for tracking your donors and their donations.
This is the best excel template, but most nonprofits find that spreadsheets do not meet their needs. this spreadsheet provides filtering and reporting, along with a simple dashboard showing your fundraising success by campaign, fund, appeal, and date, but like any spreadsheet, it lacks online giving, automatic gift tracking, easy receipt or thank you sending, notes for tracking donors, and more.
DonorDock is like a database spreadsheet, but it automatically tracks the gifts you receive, and allows you to send personalized thanks and receipts in seconds, plus it easily integrates with all the tools you're already using.
If you want to see history of gifts, follow up with donors, and grow long term relationships, you need more than a spreadsheet.
Winner = DonorDock
Organizations use spreadsheets to manage donors because spreadsheets are familiar, and often free. Unfortunately, they are not designed for engaging donors.
Many organizations find that spreadsheets seem like a simple solution, but end up being more complicated. 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 relationship management, and is a great choice for organizations looking to switch from spreadsheets.
DonorDock is a popular choice because it is easy to use, comes with many time-saving features, and 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.
Winner = DonorDock
Spreadsheets have the advantage of being free for most organizations. However, this does not truly capture the true costs of not having a true donor database.
Some organizations may feel that they can't afford a donor management system. The reality is that that they may not be able to go without one.
Without an effective system for following up with Donors, organizations lose potential gifts, and fail to cultivate major donors. Organizations that want to cultivate relationships with donors, (especially donors who can give larger gifts) need donor management systems to keep track of past relationships.
Nonprofits also waste countless staff hours trying to work with inefficient systems. Most nonprofits that switch to DonorDock save hours each week, so the tool easily pays for itself.
DonorDock costs less than most nonprofits think, and is affordable even for organizations on tight budgets.
All things considered, DonorDock costs less than using spreadsheets, because it allows organizations to attract and retain more donors, more efficiently.
