Bloomerang is an ideal alternative to Salesforce.

Salesforce offers nonprofits a discounted rate, but, you may end up paying more to implement, customize, and use the software solution than you would if you invested in a true donor database that was built for nonprofits.

Luckily, Bloomerang’s cloud-based donor management software provides nonprofits with the features they need on a single platform that is intuitive and easy to use—making Bloomerang an ideal alternative to Salesforce.

Salesforce vs. Bloomerang Comparison

Compare for yourself: Salesforce vs. Bloomerang

Nonprofit Cloud, Salesforce’s nonprofit CRM, and their support success pack costs $72 per month. Even the newest and smallest nonprofits quickly find that they need to buy software from third-party vendors to do even the basics: accepting online donations, having event registration and wealthy screening functionality, sending mass emails, and processing payments. Customers have told us they’ve saved tens of thousands in implementation costs by avoiding Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud.

With Bloomerang you get all of the donor database features you need, including email marketing, online giving tools, event registration tools, constituent giving summaries, robust reporting, and more.

Switching from Salesforce to Bloomerang

See why this fundraiser switched from Salesforce to Bloomerang, the best Salesforce alternative.

Bloomerang makes their customers smile like this man who is surrounded by leaves.

Our customers use Bloomerang to manage their entire supporter ecosystem, including donors, volunteers, sponsors, grantees, and more. You’ll also be able to view real-time retention and engagement metrics. And if you have any questions about using Bloomerang, you can chat or call our local support team at no cost.

"But the absolute best thing about Bloomerang is the support. We went from Salesforce's NFP version with ZERO support and a bloated, complex, programming-biased environment to a slimmed down and 100% more useful Bloomerang system, with support available instantly by chat M-F. The chat technicians are not first level 'take your details' folks. They are experts and stick with us on the problem solving until the issue is fixed, rather than dumping us into an email queue that might take days to resolve otherwise.”
