Pros

Our needs are fairly straightforward and Donation allows for easy multiple donation entries for a given day. Also, the support has been great.

The software is very user friendly, all options that are needed for our organization are integrated into DONATION. Dan is fantastic to work with, any questions/concerns are promptly answered.

JD

I don't usually write reviews for programmes/products etc. but feel that Donation deserves a very strong recommendation. I am very thankful that I was fortunate enough to learn of its existence.

Pros

I really appreciate their patience even when I am not sure how to explain what I want. Results have been great.

LM

I have been delighted with this software and its upgrades to meet changing requirements. Great value for money as well.

Donarius is easy to use and allows me to track and update donors to our school with ease. At the end of each year it is simple to create donor reports and to create Charitable Donation Receipts.

SW

Cons

Even past years were available if needed to reprint receipts. The only downside relates to the set up of categories (for our various cause collections) which we had to do a couple of times.

If there is no way of being able to do this quicker I may change my format for 2010. Right now I am entering the amounts by envelope number and record on my spreadsheet alphabetically.

I do however struggle a little looking for the correct reports I require. Mainly because I use them so infrequently and forget were to look.

Cons

Having a problem at this point trying to format the donations by date statement for the tellers to sign.

RM

When you need to add a new donor and have a limited number of envelope numbers, you have to delete an inactive donor.

Took me a bit of time to remove an envelope number from a person who died or left so I could use the number again.

DONATION by Software4NonProfits

Reviewed 2 years ago

We track donations/offerings for our church. While the program does handle pledges, our church does not make pledges. We merely track donations in the form of cash or cheques or e-transfers. For this purpose, I HIGHLY recommend this program!

Pros

I tried a few programs early on in my time as treasurer (which is 17 years now), including Quickbooks and Donarius. I found Donation much easier to use than Donarius. Our needs are fairly straightforward and Donation allows for easy multiple donation entries for a given day. Also, the support has been great. Every question I've ever asked was answered usually within 24 hours. They even added features to the program at my request!

Cons

This program is really meant for tracking donations only. It's not meant to be a complete CRM system, so some folks may find it limited in that regard.

overall a very good product, much better than previous software used which was created in US and was noncompliant with Canadian tax receipt requirements

Pros

Very easy to use, reports are useful. Tax receipts feature works very well.

Cons

Would like some more reporting options. Would be nice to show both a cash donation and a cheque donation from the same donor on the same date.

Entering both a cash and cheque donation is done by entering one then pressing F8 and entering the second one. You can find out more here: http://www.nuverb.com/support/faq.html#mult_don

Using Donarius Church Management Donations Program

Reviewed 3 years ago

We ran into some issues back in February regarding re-printing of 2018 Donor Tax Receipts. We contacted [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]who responded in a timely manner & able to help us re-print the required documentation.

Pros

The software is relatively easy & straightforward to use. I am able to complete weekly donations input in approximately 30 minute time frame. with the lastest revision, for multiple donations from one donor, able to press F8 and the next donation for the same donor will appear.

Cons

I really do not have any complaints / concerns about the software program. Two improvements that would be nice to have: 1. When you move to the next donor, whatever donation field was previously used, the donation goes automatically into that category which is not always the case. You need to be very careful that the donation amount & category for each donor is correct. 2. Be able to select additional fields / donation categories and in the order that would make more sense. not easily changeable.

Time savings. Used to use NCR recording by hand. Now, I can run totals quickly for reports.

Pros

Easy to use. Interfaces with Vanco Solutions (our online donation system). Customer service is excellent!

Occasionally, while entering donations, the 'sync' is interrupted. After entering a donation, the software usually goes to the donor number/envelope number ready for the next search; however, sometimes it stays in the amount recording field after hitting enter causing an error in the donation amount.

Relied on this for years for Church finances

Great software for smaller congregations looking for a cost effective solution to their donation management.

Pros

I found this software intuitive enough that our volunteer book keeper was able to use it on a regular basis without issue. Produced Tax receipts and tracked miscellaneous donations as well as regular ones. Our accountant was pleased that he only had to review at the end of the year - it took the burden off him on a weekly basis. The tax receipts was huge - saved us from manually creating all of them.

Cons

The software itself had an older look and feel and I felt it could have been updated more frequently.

Easy to Use

I have enjoyed using this software for the ease of use and all that we require as a society. I have used other means for the recording of donations but found they were a lot more involved than I liked. Donarius is easy even for a beginner.

Pros

All I need is in the program and to make the yearly donation receipts is very simple. Creating the yearly donation receipt was only a simple click command and it was done. This was the best part of the program for me.

Cons

A little more work to delete inactive numbers. I just needed to work through the commands to find what I needed most.

Because we only issue donation receipts annually, it can be difficult to remember how to use a donation software program. Because Donarius is so easy to use and intuitive, we don't waste time trying to relearn the program every year. And if we do run into issues, they provide excellent customer support - above and beyond. Would highly recommend it to any non-profit.

It's intuitive and really easy to use. And the customer support is stellar. No one gives this kind of patient, customer-focused support and that's why I recommend it to everyone I know.

Donarius 3.44 Review

This is the only software for tracking donations that I have used; however, it has everything I need and the price is right for our small congregation. Use it with confidence.

Pros

I have used Donarius to record church offerings for four years and have found it to be an invaluable tool. Set-up and entry are simple. There are many reports available for preparing financials, tracking pledges and issuing reports. I am especially looking forward to the newest version that will allow me to email reports to donors. Customer service is wonderful, and I have never had a problem with the software. The discount offered to smaller congregations is also a welcomed and appreciated feature.

Cons

The only con in 3.44 was the lack of a calendar to simplify entry of the date of the donation. That has been added in the latest version.
