Cloud-based fundraising software for nonprofit organizations

4.35/5 (50 reviews)

Trail Blazer Non-Profit Manager overview

Trail Blazer Non-Profit Manager is a cloud-based fundraising software for nonprofit organizations to manage donations and fundraising events. The solution is installed on devices while the data is hosted in a secure cloud facility, providing the flexibility to access information from a Mac, PC, iPad or any web-enabled cellular device.

Trail Blazer provides the set of tools required to manage activities involved in organizing a fundraising event including donor registration, relationship & communication management, pledges, accounting and more. Organizers can create invitation messages and share event information with their members through emails or text messages. The on-premises solution displays search results faster than a web-based solution. Organizers can generate a monthly newsletter and automate its sharing with members.

Non-profit organizations can also leverage the benefit of social media platforms and collect donations from their Facebook page. The solution helps to track membership details such as member profile, subscription plan, renewal dates and donation history, among others. Trail Blazer has also partnered with multiple credit card processing gateways including PayPal and Authorize.Net, to facilitate online payments. All financial information is stored in a secure PCI compliant data center.

The solution is suitable for animal welfare organizations, education institutes, museums religious & faith-based organizations.

Generally good. It does what we need for a reasonable price, and with great support by the Trailblazer team. The downsides--remote Mac access, ugly interface, manual importing--are a hassle, but we're used to it.Fantastic customer support. Pretty intuitive to navigate. The right level of features for my fundraising program--all the functionality I need, but not too much to clutter my dashboard or brain. Easy to train colleagues.

Outstanding. I wish the vendors in other areas that I deal with were this committed to customer support and satisfaction.The software has many features that have worked well for our group which is a membership based nonprofit. Over the few years that we have had it, the company has made substantial improvements on a continuing basis. However, the assumptions underlying the software's design and features must be a close match to your real world operations or you will likely need to adjust how you do some things to make the software work for you. However, the software is very adaptive, it has many features we need and quite a few we have not implemented. Also, and this is critical for us, the software support, training and consulting is worth every penny you pay for the annual license and more!

Now that I've been using it for a while, I'm able to get things done very quickly and efficiently. I greatly appreciate the ability to sort donors into super specific groupings. Trailblazer has allowed me to segment my donor base with amazing flexibility, with just a few clicks.The best thing about Trailblazer is the customer service. The guys are extremely accessible and helpful. They are willing to walk me through a process, or just do it for me - whichever I request. After trying two other donor management softwares that offered little or no help, Trailblazer's amazing service is a welcomed benefit.

I love TrailBlazer! It is the best single decision I've made for my non-profit in the past 10 years! The customer services is outstanding, and I love the system.It does SO much! It is light-years beyond Excel and serves us better than any other online system that we've looked into! Everything we do can be exported to an Excel form, it tracks people, finances, events, emails, relationships and so much more. It is easy to use and navigate and keeps us organized. I can run thousands of reports and customize all of it to meet my needs. Training is easy to understand and straightforward.

Customer support, particularly during the training and start-up phase, has been excellent. They are quick and responsive. And their solutions have nearly always been positive -- almost never a "Sorry we can't do that" or "It doesn't work that way" or "We don't have that feature."
