Donor Development: from complex to approachable

Hear from Jill with Ronald Mcdonald House Charities of the Red River Valley. She shares how DonorDock made donor management approachable and simplified their onboarding.

Founded in 1982, the Ronald McDonald House Charities
of the Red River Valley
provides support for parents whose children are receiving medical care.

Jill shares how:

  • They simplified their operations and training.
  • With DonorDock, volunteers and staff alike could jump on to complete donor outreach tasks.
  • A responsive customer support team was a game changer for them.
“[Other companies] would say they were user-friendly, but they never were. It was hard to train new employees, and we found we weren't using a lot of the services because it was too hard to figure it out. When we switched to DonorDock, I loved that it actually is user-friendly.”

Complicated software stands in the way

For many small nonprofits, the journey into donor management software is stressful and overwhelming. There isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done, let alone add in learning a new complex software. Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley knows this struggle all too well. In the words of their Chief Executive Officer, Jill, "Before working with Donordock, the hard truth was that a lot of the software solutions were really complicated." The sentiment is all too familiar to nonprofit leaders who have grappled with platforms that promised user-friendliness, only to leave them feeling frustrated and on their own.

The so-called 'intuitive interfaces' were anything but. Training new team members was more difficult and time-consuming than it needed to be. And those extra features meant to streamline and simplify operations were left untouched because they were too hard to figure out

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley realized they needed a donor management system that met them where their team was at - something easy-to-use while having all the features they needed.
