EdVenture Children’s Museum
Play is the central ingredient in how children learn. There is no greater gift that can be shared with a child than the chance to play. Play promotes learning as children develop social skills, imagination, communication, cooperation, creativity, reasoning, memory, and the list goes on. When children play at EdVenture, they role play as fire fighters, grocers, farmers, chefs, astronauts, and a host of community helpers, as they learn so much about their world. When children play at EdVenture they are creating experiences that last a lifetime.
Bloomerang understands the importance that the arts has on modern culture and life. Numerous performing arts centers, arts councils, humanities charities and other educational or cultural institutions choose Bloomerang’s donor database solution.
Louis Fawcett, Senior Vice President of Principal Gifts, was looking to downsize from Blackbaud.
“It was too expensive and too complicated. I don’t need a Gulfstream to hauls stuff across town. A pickup truck works great.”
Louis was drawn to our affordable pricing, user-friendly interface, and most importantly the ability to measure donor retention.
EdVenture switched to Bloomerang with a custom conversion from Blackbaud.
In seven months of using Bloomerang, EdVenture has seen huge improvements.
- Donor retention increased 58% from 29% to 46%!
“We’re going to continue to steward our existing donors through the education, ask and thank process. I would love to see our donor retention climb over 50% as our next goal!”
