We’re in the process of looking at fundraising databases and would like to hear from other charities who have been through this process.
It would be useful to know what process you went through from the requirements stage to the selection process. Also if you used any models or tools to help plan the project.
I note that you have just joined the forum. So please don’t be miffed if no one else replies to this query. It is just that 80% of the threads here ask this same question or some variation. So look around here, for example, this one
Also google “fundraising database” AND Robert Weiner OR Peter Flory They are consultants who have written and presented frequently on this subject.
Tools for Self Reliance
Larry is right – there is endless stuff on this forum about which system to choose, the best way to approach the specification and procurement process.
We have a tool available on our website at http://www.pvsystems.co.uk which explains how we think the procurement process should work – look for the link to a pdf called ‘enlightened procurement’
Thank you all for your response!
I’m sure you’ve got a flood of responses like this. But just so you’ve got options if you’re looking for a web-based solution (which means you have access to your data anywhere you have access to a PC with an internet connection) you might consider WA-Fundraising (www.abattia.com)
The people we work with have been quite sucessful, Abattia’s customers have already used WA-Fundraising to raise in excess of £50 million in donations, and claim over £2.5 million in Gift Aid.
Just so you have some options,
