Combined company will offer an expanded set of capabilities to help nonprofits attract more donors, deepen existing donor relationships and improve fundraising effectiveness

Bloomerang, a leader in cloud-based donor management and fundraising software for small and mid-size nonprofits, today announced that it has acquired Kindful, a nonprofit software platform known for its best-in-class third party application integrations and online fundraising tools.

The combination of advanced donor engagement insights provided by Bloomerang and Kindful’s strengths in online giving and integrated applications, accelerates Bloomerang’s vision to deliver the donor management and fundraising platform of the future.

“We’ve always focused on elevating the effectiveness of nonprofits and now we’ll be able to scale it at a much faster pace,” said Ross Hendrickson, CEO of Bloomerang. “Our target market has been underserved by legacy tech and manual processes. They deserve much more. By combining the two top rated companies in this space, we can make a combined platform that helps nonprofits acquire new donors, increase donor loyalty, and ultimately affect their mission through thoughtful fundraising.”

The combined company will offer nonprofits the opportunity to deploy a modern, easy-to-use donor management, donor communication, fundraising and reporting platform that supports the complete donor lifecycle and seamlessly integrates with the broader nonprofit application ecosystem. Bloomerang will also continue its commitment to providing world-class fundraising education and resources through its research initiatives, webinar series, and consultant network. Together, the combined company will support tens of thousands of nonprofit professionals globally and is backed by a team of 200 employees who are passionate about delivering great service and support.

“Kindful’s donor management platform has excelled by making online donation pages, real-time integrations and reporting tools simple, yet powerful for customers,” said Jeremy L. Bolls Founder and CEO of Kindful. “We’re thrilled to join Bloomerang because together we can help our customers make a greater impact on the world by providing tools that allow them to spend more time and resources on their mission to do more good.”

The acquisition builds on a strong year of momentum for the company. Last September Bloomerang received a strategic growth investment from JMI Equity. Earlier in 2020 the company was named a Leader in Nonprofit CRM software by G2, SoftwareAdvice and Business-Software.com. And, for the fifth consecutive year, Bloomerang was named one of the “Best Places to Work in Indiana.”
