The auto reminders and calendaring are super helpful. The seamless integration with online giving was also a blessing.
The product is easy to use, intuitive, and very easy to manipulate into reporting what you need to know. The vendor offers so many amazing training courses and really set's you up for success.
There are preset reports and queries, but we have the ability to design our own reports and queries as well. Also, the customer support by phone, email, and chat is outstanding.
I rarely write bad reviews but this product made my job miserable. Even as a nonprofit with limited funds, I chose to use another product just because I couldn't get eTapestry to do what I needed.
When you get it, you can be completely surprised because you have no idea of what they will be delivering because they did no layouts to have you approve.
I was shocked that after paying for training that they would do this.

Good management software

Reviewed a year ago

We use this as our primary data storage system. It talks to our database view very well.


I like that all of our data is stored in this software and that it is easy to quickly access for my whole team.


Sometimes the software gets bogged down with users and runs very slow. The updates do take some getting used to as well.

very versitile

Reviewed 2 years ago

We have been able to move towards a more technology based fundraising using the justgiving portion of blackbaud for our jog-a-thon. Students created their own page and shared it for donations. This made tracking and acknowledging donations much more efficient.


We use etapestry and justgiving and have found it to be very useful. We have been able to easily link fundraising campaigns, event registration and forms to our website and then track information.


Extracting information can be somewhat challenging - once you learn their programing and how to create a query it becomes easier. They do provide a very large training database and a chat room for help.

Very detailed product that I'm always finding new options in.

Reviewed a month ago

It can be customized though it is a little bit of a learning curve since it is set up more for businesses and harder to get things figured out for non profit.


The complexity of trying to make quieries to then have to create reports and the amount of time that is lost trying to figure out what one of the many steps made it not yield desired results.

Good for Database Management, Poor Communications Tools

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have been working in communications and development for non-profit organizations for more than 15 years. I have been using eTapestry for 2 years. I have experience with a variety of other donor management tools including Blackbaud's The Raiser's Edge. eTapestry is strong in regard to contact management, processing online gifts, and the reporting/query tools. The expense as well as the email communications and analytics are where it falls short.


Entire system is very easy to learn no matter the experience level Managing donor records and online gifts is very easy Reporting and query tools are easy to use even for those without a lot of experience building queries clean, user-friendly interface excellent customer support simple data entry & gift processing online giving pages import gifts directly to database, helping teams avoid manual entry & the pages can be reskinned to match your website design easy to mass import records


expensive, especially having to pay for Advanced emails & paying an hourly fee for minor changes eTapestry support must be requested for an array of minor tweaks to giving pages for example and it usually takes several days to up to 2 weeks to get changes finished communications templates are inflexible and look extremely dated, often the preview of a communication you see on your screen is not how it looks at delivery, very limited analytics tools and delivery/testing options as far as I know there is no ability to export from eTapestry to QuickBooks which means gift processing team must reenter gifts manually into QuickBooks while it has the ability to provide personal fundraising pages, they are highly inflexible and the layouts look so dated they are almost not worth using

Blackbaud eTapestry: Well Worth The Purchase - Absolutely Worth Every Dime

Reviewed 3 months ago

Exceptional experience and would recommend to all that are searching for a donor software system.


Everything about this software is exactly what we need. We can communicate with our supporters in many ways, prepare and run queries on any field, create and use reporting features at any time and essentially document and track all donor information. This is all done with ease and offers flexibility.


We wish there were a few more features as it integrates with social media and email addresses. We have found that the accuracy is not as strong as we would like it to be.
