Switching to Bloomerang donor management software is not only painless, but could possibly save your nonprofit hundreds of dollars per year! Many of our customers have switched from other leading industry providers in order to take advantage of our unique feature set and expert support. Bloomerang is so intuitive and easy to use that many of our customers are able to save countless hours of productivity due to our minimal training requirements.

An ideal alternative to:

Independently operated, forever.

Bloomerang is an employee-owned, fully-independent software firm.

No group of investors or third-party has a controlling stake in our business plan, and Bloomerang is financially structured to pay longterm dividends to our employees and angel investors.

This means that an acquisition would be disadvantageous not only to our customers, but to all of our stakeholders.
