    Dear all

    I’m wanting to source a basic fundraising/marketing database which is functional but not too expensive.

    I have used Proclaim in the past and Razers Edge (whish is too expensive). Its been a good few years since I had to source a database, and I was wondering whether since I last looked, there any good ‘off the shelf’ type databases which our IT department could look after in-house (so we don’t have to pay ongoing support fees)

    Any help would be gratefully received

    Many thanks

    You could contact Richard Hubbard, whose day job is with International China Concern.

    It is my understanding that Richard has developed a basic but functional database for donor management, which he will make available to other charities for a very reasonable cost.

    I haven’t seen it myself, but Richard offered a session on it at the North East Institute of Fundraising conference in November, and the feedback was very positive.

    Contact Richard at if you want further info.

    Just in case this topic is being raised again…

    Alan Owen’s email – re JAC solutions – is worth looking at.
