Pros

BUT, it was FREE and VERY EASY to use. Once we got it up and running, it worked like a charm, and our volunteers all commented on how easy it was to use.

DL

Derek L.

I enjoy the fact I can schedule fundraising races and other volunteer events with VolunteerLocal with great ease. Compatibility with social media platforms is great.

AG

Abhishek G.

I also have needed tech support to help with some changes and editing, and the fast response is impressive. The whole staff is friendly, understanding and pleasant to work with.

SB

Sandy B.

Pros

Overall Blackbaud is a great software program for donor management. I would highly recommend to all fundraising professionals.

JK

Jacob K.

Now we have the best of both worlds. Most of our office now works exclusively in the web view and with it, they can now get immediate information by themselves that assists them in their work.

KS

Karen S.

The ease of use which makes training co-workers much quicker and more easily understandable. The various modules make database management more effective (specifically EVENTS).

PS

Phyllis S.

Cons

I also wonder if the higher levels give notification when a volunteer signs up or I may have missed this feature.

GW

Gillian W.

For a "newbie", it can be confusing. A lot has to do with how the event coordinator sets up the sign-up process to sign up for events.

VW

Victoria W.

We had some issues when we launched initially but our rep helped us immediately and fixed the problem within five minutes.

Cons

While the tools at your disposal are copious, new users will be at a complete loss. We transferred over from another system and we still required a lot of training.

My biggest complaint with Blackbaud is customer service. Prior to the new procedures, I was able to call and speak to a human being and explain my issue.

PS

Phyllis S.

Taking a training class can be quite costly and I missed a week of work because I was taught by a live in-person instructor.
