Your vibrant community of faith is committed to fostering spiritual growth and outreach. But in today’s fast-paced digital world, you’re facing a unique set of challenges—managing membership, increasing giving, streamlining stewardship and engagement, and shepherding volunteers. The need for a solution that not only processes donations but also fosters deep connections and strategic growth is more vital than ever. This is where Bloomerang steps in, offering a transformative solution as shared by various faith-based organizations. 

Taking inspiration from divine connections

The challenge of outdated systems

Sharon Tennyson, Distribution Coordinator for Adventist Review Magazine, the flagship journal of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, encountered a significant hurdle with their previous donor database.

“We had a homemade database for managing our donors. It was hard to maintain; the designer was retiring, and no one else was going to keep it up,” she recalls.

The solution? Bloomerang, a comprehensive and user-friendly donor management solution. Sharon finds that “Segmenting my lists and creating unique and custom donor communications is a breeze now.” Bloomerang addresses the need for efficient donor management and personalized communication, crucial for sustaining and growing a faith community.

Adapting to technology for better engagement

Rabbi Shlomo Cohen, Director of Operations at Chabad of Charlotte, highlights another challenge: engaging with a community using technology everyone can use. “We were looking for an easy-to-use donor management software that could help us organize and keep track of all our donors,” he says. The intuitive design and easy navigation Bloomerang offers come as a blessing here, making it possible for even those not tech-savvy to maximize their impact. 

Gaining on-the-go accessibility

The Catholic community, represented by Adam Murray, Director of Development at St. Thomas More Catholic Newman Center, the Catholic campus ministry at Minnesota State University, Mankato, needed a solution that offered mobility to support the spiritual development of approximately 4,000 college students during a critical transitional time of their lives. “I was struggling with Giftworks’ non-cloud-version and lack of mobile capabilities,” Adam shares. The switch to Bloomerang brought significant change. “I was finally able to access our database while traveling. Our old software required me to print out past contact reports and contact information for when I went on donor and alumni visits. I’m now able to call benefactors without even dialing their phone numbers!” This Bloomerang feature ensures that faith leaders can stay connected with their community and manage operations anytime, anywhere. 

Making research-driven decisions

For Hassan Shibly, the Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida, the right tool involved extensive research. “We spent six months researching and vetting multiple donor databases before deciding to go with Bloomerang,” he explained. The decision to choose Bloomerang was based on its capability to provide essential fundraising data and a user-friendly experience. The outcome? “The system has exceeded our expectations.”

“We recently used Bloomerang to engage donors in a GivingTuesday campaign,” Hassan shared. “We used the integrated prospect research features that identified donors that would be a good match to contribute to the campaign and were able to raise $62,000 online from donors already in our database.”

Finding the common thread

Throughout these stories, there’s a common theme: the need for a versatile, user-friendly, and comprehensive system that goes beyond traditional donation processing. Bloomerang offers a holistic approach to managing donor information, enabling personalized communication, providing mobile access, and integrating seamlessly with other platforms. It’s not just about processing donations but about nurturing a sense of community and belonging.

Each of these stories from different faith communities highlights how Bloomerang caters to the unique needs of faith-based organizations. From managing a comprehensive database of member information to enabling on-the-go access and delivering robust reporting and analytics, Bloomerang is a central hub for community-building efforts.

Bloomerang isn’t just a tool; it’s a partner in the mission of faith communities to connect, inspire, and empower. Whether it’s managing donations, communicating with congregants, or planning strategically for the future, Bloomerang is there to support every step of the way.
