2018 is definitely on a roll, but it can be fun to look back to 2017, especially after learning that last year was great for philanthropy! Blackbaud recently released their 2017 Charitable Giving Report, and the numbers don’t lie: non-profit donations increased in size and number! Overall, non-profit donations increased by over 4% compared to the previous year, but how do things break down in different categories?
The private sector has long employed customer relationship management (CRM) software, but today, more and more, nonprofits, museums, and other organizations are recognizing the power of having a CRM. There are many options to look at when deciding which CRM to use as each solution employs a different focus, set of features, and cost to consider.
For most organizations, their CRM is the hub for all things related to membership. CRMs have come a long way from paper systems and now come in the form of robust software that allows organizations to connect countless insights across dozens of channels to understand what makes members unique. In that transition from paper to digital, organizations have saved time, money, and a whole lot of hassle.
