I can't say enough about the DonorSnap program itself and the staff behind it. Simply amazing!!!!

2018-05-15

Easy reporting Easy data entry Duplication Management Website Integration

Pros

I manage a number of databases for various nonprofit clients across the United States.

Cons

To be honest, I can't say that anything is really a con to me. The DonorSnap team is continually coming out with additional features to enhance an already great system. All the while, keeping the price extremely affordable.

A great platform for non-profit contact management (general contacts, members, donors, pledges,etc)

2010-12-23

DonorSanp is super. We selected it instead of trying to develop our own DBMS. Everyone at DonorSnap has been great to deal with, starting with sales to technical support. I have recommended DonorSnap to other affiliates and non-profits. I recommend it enthusiastically.

Pros

User added and defined lists allow easy tailoring to a specific organization. 5. Import/Export with Excel allow easy spreadsheet content import and export. 6.

Cons

(This is available for Import/Export but not for manually entered data.)

This database does everything you need for a low price

2017-04-28

We can quickly and easily generate reports of all types - no limits on customizable reports.

Pros

I have worked with bigger and much more expensive databases at past jobs, and I always ran into problems that were unsolvable within the system - reports I needed that it couldn't generate, no ability to mass upload things, or something along those lines.

Cons

One time, I had to import hundreds of gifts made on another platform, and get them to match up to the right donor records already in our database. It was quite the conversation with customer service as I learned how to do this, and it wasn't something I hope to have to do often.

Exactly what we needed at a reasonable price

2013-08-30

We looked at a lot of options and chose DonorSnap in 2012 due to the features and price. They imported our existing data so we didn't end up with some data in the old system and some in the new system.

Excellent Product for Smaller Nonprofits

2010-05-25

Highly recommeneded for smaller nonprofits seeking a great online donor management software system.

Pros

One of iit's greatest features is the level of flexibility possible through user-defined fields. In addition, DonorSnap staff have always be willing to hear my feedback about the product and strive to do what they can to improve it.

Cons

The system needs to be able to query via donation information more readily, be more diverse in how its reports are produce, have the capacity for merged queries, and have standard development tools such soft-crediting.

Low Cost - High Efficiency

2013-05-02

We're now able to enter and search our data with ease.

Pros

Report system easy to understand and manipulate. Importing original data was a smooth transition.

Cons

I would like to have them entered differently so that they don't look like regular, dollar donations in reports.

Unfriendly Experience

2016-09-26

Pros

Remote access (although not mobile); Low cost compared to other products.

Cons

There were many more "No, you can't do that"s in the training than I expected knowing that it is a low-budget database, and reports promised during sales pitches were not available once the contract was signed.

Seek out reporting features that are real-world required--pulling multiple reports and heavily relying on excel is unproductive and goes against the purpose of a donor database.

New to DonorSnap and feeling great!

2011-09-30

Being online means my data is accessible when I am out on the road or working from home or a volunteer's office.

Pros

As a small regional land trust I love that my donor database is online.

Cons

There were only one or two hiccups with the conversion, not in the migration, but because ebase and DonorSnap have different ways of tracking data (payment type, for example).

Donorsnap is by far the best Donor Management Software program we have ever used.

2018-06-14

Pros

Offer a mobile app for iPhone.

Cons

Mass updates are a little bit cumbersome by requiring information to be exported to Excel, updated and then imported back into the program.

Great solution for small nonprofits

2018-09-07

Pros

My favorite feature is the form builder; the forms integrate nicely with our website and are a great solution for event registration forms that import the data directly into the CRM.

Cons

The report features are very robust but not always intuitive to set up and run.

Great Product!

2011-10-11

Would highly recommend this program to other potential users.

Pros

MUCH lower fees than other on-line fundraising software. Has a bunch of usable features without paying for a lot of stuff we will not use. All inclusive - no add-on fees.

Cons

A little difficult to integrate all of our databases.

New User - Pleased so far with initial implementation

2011-10-12

So far, we are pleased with DonorSnap for use as a membership database. We'll know more about how it meets our needs as we enter additional types of contacts like volunteers and other donors.

Pros

Creating labels and renewal letters for membships has been a learning process and we are still working through some of the issues.

Cons

We are not using the mailmerge feature, and setting up renewal letters and labels from within DonorSnap was not really intuitive.

Awesome Database!

2016-09-27

I've been using DonorSnap since June and I just want to say how AWESOME this database is! I used GiftWorks for 4 years and DonorSnap is so much more simplified and easy to use.

Pros

It is well organized. Each contact is accessible by multiple tabs at the top so you don't have to leave the screen and go back and forth.

Cons

It would be easier if they were synced so when a contact is added to the database it automatically gets added to Constant Contact.

DonorSnap Easy & Efficient

2015-03-17

Pros

Throughout the short time that we've been with DonorSnap, they've thoughtfully added some popular features like credit card interface, the ability to quickly upload individual demographic info solicited from a form on our website, and mass email capabilities to save on postage.

Cons

I wish there was a better way to show "InKind" donations on a report. Currently, they look the same as a cash donation.

Great value! Gives us everything we need and more at a fraction of the cost of our previous system.

2018-07-03

Pros

We are starting to take advantage of the prospecting aspects--tracking our donor contacts and using ticklers to make sure we follow-up in a timely manner.

Cons

I really appreciate all of the things I can do to customize DonorSnap to fit my needs. . . define user profiles individually, add and customize fields, rearrange my dashboard to view what I want to view. . . it has all been great.

Simple. Flexible. Powerful!

2012-07-18

If you are a small non-profit, this is the most comprehensive, flexible, and cost-effective tool to use, bar none.

Pros

Raiser's Edge, Gift Maker Pro, Donor Perfect, and Salesforce.com, but nothing has been as easy to use and as intuitive and DonorSnap.

Cons

The standard reports aren't as robust as I've seen in other tools, but the customized reporting tools are very easy to use.

DonorSnap is a great toolbox for our nonprofit.

2018-04-13

Pros

It also interfaces with other programs (eg Constant Contact). And, there are links to "help" or "instructions" on every screen should you need it.

Cons

There is a little bit of a learning curve involved to get up and going with some of the tools (eg reporting). But, as I mentioned in the "pros" area, there are many "help" and instructional tools on every screen.

If you have any experience at all with a database, this is easy to learn and use. Great value!

2018-04-09

Easier annual report writing due to queries ability.

Pros

I feel it is targeted to exactly what we are, a small non-profit, that wants to stay organized, legal, and grow using electronic transfer of funds coordinated with a website.

Cons

I would more standardization of use between types of things I might want to do, for example a printed thank you versus a emailed thank you.

DonorSnap is a great value!

2010-12-07

I recommend DonorSnap to any nonprofit professionals looking to upgrade their donor/volunteer management systems.

Pros

The mail merge feature and ability to process multiple acknowledgement letters simulaneously is very straightforward - all staff and volunteers find it easy to use.

Cons

Lack of an instructional manual made learning the system a little difficult, but their how-to videos embedded in the database help.

For a small non-profit, this is a nice easy entry into the world of databases

2018-02-13

Pros

easy sign-up, fast turnaround on data, set-up has been fairly self explanatory, report pulling is not too complicated

Cons

trainings are sub-par, wish they had chat support - waiting for an answer when you are in the middle of something is annoying. don't like the fact that when you do a search, it brings up ALL the entries instead of just finding the names.

Nothing comes to mind other than I wish they had more standard reports so that non-techies like me could more easily get relational data easily.
