The face-off: DonorPerfect vs. Bloomerang. Bloomerang’s cloud-based donor management software has all the benefits you’ve come to expect from DonorPerfect: fundraising management & development capabilities, mobile access and real-time support. However, our paths diverge when you consider standard features and support. Read on to see why Bloomerang is an ideal alternative to DonorPerfect.

iOS Mobile App – Best Practices In Your Pocket

Everything you love about Bloomerang’s donor management software, now on your iPhone! Access your database and steward donors from anywhere!

Access your dashboard to see high-level metrics including campaign progress and your current donor retention rate. See transactions come through in real-time, and click through to the constituent’s contact info to send a thank you text or email, or even give them a quick phone call to say thanks. Board members can be empowered to do the same. See someone in the news? Add a note about what you found out, and/or set yourself or a colleague a task to follow-up appropriately.

Meeting with a donor? Perform last-minute research to remind yourself of their personal details. After the meeting, there’s no need to wait to enter any notes. Capture that info while it’s still fresh in your mind. You can even use the speech recognition built into your phone so you can dictate notes!

Want to capture donations in-person? Plug in a Stripe credit card reader and start swiping!

Rich, Graphical Reporting

Unfortunately, many nonprofits lack the organizational standards and metrics that funders demand of those they might consider supporting.

That’s why we’ve created the Sustainability Scorecard, a unique operational assessment and data analysis tool that will set you on the path towards organizational sustainability.

What gets measured gets improved upon! Track your year-to-date performance for face-to-face meetings with donors, in-kind gifts, your monthly donor value and donor retention rate. Goals are set based on your performance in the previous fiscal year-to-date, and progress is updated daily.
