Raiser’s Edge NXT, the long-awaited update to Raiser’s Edge is finally here. While many consider NXT to simply be RE8, it’s important to understand what NXT truly is and how it can help you.
NXT sits on top of an existing Raiser’s Edge database, and pulls data from it. While NXT offers appealing data visualization, it isn’t a true stand-alone donor database. NXT is ideal if you have a significant amount of staff who need access to RE data, but aren’t comfortable or willing to log into the database.
Compare for yourself:
- Requires a Raiser’s Edge subscription
- Requires connection to a locally hosted Raiser’s Edge database
- Dashboard interface only – pulls data from RE
- Little data entry/editing is possible
- Software Advice reviews
- TrustRadius reviews
- G2 Crowd reviews
- GlassDoor reviews
- Additional fees for maintenance and hosting
- For up to 5,000 records
With just 5,000 records and a whopping annual price of $11,988, you could easily spend over $30,000 for a three year contract with Raiser’s Edge NXT.

Raiser’s Edge NXT Constituent Summary
Bloomerang Constituent Summary
Hear from one customer who switched from Raiser’s Edge NXT
“Bloomerang works perfect for us. It’s user-friendly, inexpensive and continues to evolve with new features. And the support team and tutorials are a valuable resource,” said Katy Walsh, Director of Development and Communications at National Runaway Safeline.
“NRS had been using Raisers Edge for over a decade. The system was never a good fit for us… In addition, we subscribed to RE’s new product Nxt. We paid the large fee for two years and still couldn’t utilize the functionality promised. After database staff turnover (6 over 8 years) and an ineffective consultant, NRS was desperate for a change.”
