The auto reminders and calendaring are super helpful. The seamless integration with online giving was also a blessing.


Kerri S.

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.


Janette L.

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.


Emily W.

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.


Linda C.

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.


Kathleen Q.

I was shocked that after paying for training that they would do this.

Good management software

Reviewed 3 months 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.

New to eTap, not to CRM

Reviewed 2 years ago

Creating an all in one database for donors and subscribers is very important as we grow. We grew from 1 to five employees overnight and so getting "organized" was essential.


I love the ease of functionality in finding and creating accounts. I like the connection with Blackbaud Merchant Services for an all in one platform.


The start-up was a little too long and delayed our business plan. Also, queries and forms are not necessarily intuitive.

Good for Database Management, Poor Communications Tools

Reviewed 5 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

eTapestry Great for Small to Mid size Nonprofits

Reviewed 4 months ago

Appreciate the pricing for this tool to track and manage our donors. Highly recommend for small and mid-size nonprofits. Easy to learn.


Flexibility of donor records is important and works well. Tagging donors in multiple different ways always our nonprofit to track and communicate in ways that are important to the donor.


Would like to see improvement in the communications features - templates are clunky to work with and designing own templates is challenging. We end up creating image in outside tool and then import it in.

Great Tool for Tracking Donors

Reviewed 9 months ago

I really like eTapestry for donor giving and cultivation.


It was easy to use and track giving and donors over time.


Grant tracking could be a little easier to navigate.
