We get it. No one ever got fired for maintaining the status quo. But if you’re looking to increase productivity and reduce costs, Bloomerang users who switch from Raiser’s Edge or are typically looking to simplify their processes while saving money in the process, while still enjoying a powerful feature set, integrated email tool and mobile access. If you’ve been oversold on features you don’t or can’t use, it’s time to ditch the dinosaur.

Raiser’s Edge Pricing and Fees

How much does Raiser’s Edge cost? Here’s the breakdown — you do the math.

The starting price for a single user is $5,000. If you want multiple users or basic customer support you could be looking at an additional $10,000 depending on how many users you have and how many years you wish to renew your support package. Not to mention that you have to purchase additional modules for functionality like event, prospect, and volunteer tracking starting at $2,000 per module. This doesn’t even account for any training you may need which could add another $1,500 to your total bill.

On the other side of the aisle, all of Bloomerang’s pricing packages include unlimited users, full functionality, and free email/chat support — no extra charge or additional modules necessary. We take pride in the claim that no training is required to use Bloomerang. Our starting standard package for up to 1,000 records is only $99/month, and we have an even better deal for all you small shops out there.
