K-12 Education + Bloomerang Donor Management Software
Bloomerang understands the unique fundraising challenges of K-12 schools. There’s no reason for technology to get in the way of funding the next generation’s education. That’s why numerous public school foundations and private k-12 schools nationwide have chosen Bloomerang’s donor database solution.
Below are just a few thoughts and success stories from organizations just like yours.
New Ulm Area Catholic Schools in New Ulm, MN consists of St. Anthony Elementary, with grades PreK-6, Cathedral High School, with grades 7-12, Cathedral of the Holy Trinity Church and the Holy Trinity Convent. They currently serve approximately 500 students on campus.
NUACS did not have a donor database and needed a way to efficiently track their alumni and donors. They were previously using Excel and a separate program to email their constituents.
Bloomerang was implemented in late-2014, and NUACS saw immediate impact.
“We use Bloomerang as our alumni database. We originate all of our mass mailings, labels, thank you notes and receipts in Bloomerang. We also use it to track all of our donations from alumni and friends. In addition, we generate email blasts out of Bloomerang as well as reports for our Board of Directors,” said Sara Rieland, Director of Development and Alumni Relations.
“We believe we are reaching more alumni through email blasts sent via Bloomerang. It is especially nice that you can see, by donor, all correspondence sent to them.”
“We have greatly increased our productivity in that we can easily email blast any communication via Bloomerang. In addition, we can easily generate reporting to assist in our mailing (we can use filters to identify a certain mailing group, then send that Excel report to our print to directly print labels. This has saved us a lot of time!)”
“Bloomerang makes donation tracking very easy. It also makes all mailing functions fast and efficient. Their support is also top notch! No waiting on hold for someone to help you, you questions is answered instantly!”
Success Story: Lawrence Township School Foundation
“We love to use the communication tools within Bloomerang, specifically the Ahern Audit, not only in our thank you letters but our e-newsletters and even our mission statement. An executive director is juggling many balls throughout the day, and we never have enough time in the day. So to be able to go into the system and have it be so user friendly is very welcoming.
