NAMI + Bloomerang Donor Management Software
Bloomerang understands the unique fundraising challenges of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) affiliates. There’s no reason for technology to get in the way of building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. That’s why numerous NAMI affiliates nationwide have chosen Bloomerang’s donor database solution to help with just that.
Below are just a few thoughts and success stories from organizations just like yours.
NAMI Connecticut provides support, education, and advocacy to all Connecticut citizens affected by mental illness.
NAMI Connecticut was looking for an easy-to-use donor management system to house all of their data. “We wanted to have a central database to host all of our information so we didn’t have it in multiple places,” said Iris Nazario, Member and Donor Relations Manager at NAMI Connecticut.
After receiving a recommendation for Bloomerang, Iris thought it might be just what they were looking for.
NAMI Connecticut appreciated finding a system that is both user friendly and compatible with their website. They’d also found that Bloomerang could fit nicely into their donor retention and gift development processes. “We are able to keep information on our donors and track when they give, how often and how much with just one click.”
On top of that, the Bloomerang team and free trainings has made it easy for Iris and her team to maximize their donor database to its fullest potential. “User friendly, the visuals are appealing, the knowledge base is full of videos and tutorials to help in learning the system, and customer service is friendly and responsive.”
Iris and her team have benefited from using their new insights for better tracking and fundraising results. “We can track to see the increases or decreases in individual giving.” They’ve eliminated the pain point of having their data in too many places with no easy way to access it. Having better and easier access to their data has helped Iris and her team make more informed fundraising decisions.
Iris and her team have also benefited from improved donor communications through up-to-date data and Bloomerang’s built-in email tool. “The email blasts are cleaner and easy to set up.”
It’s amazing what a user-friendly, data focused tool can do for the long-term growth of an organization such as NAMI Connecticut. “Glad we chose Bloomerang.”
Our mission is to help individuals and families affected by mental illness build better lives through education, support, and advocacy.

NAMI-NYC was looking for a user-friendly donor database that would make training all of their employees a breeze. “We were looking for a more user-friendly platform for our database. So that even a novice just looking for basic information would be able to find it with ease which was something we didn’t have with other platforms,” said Olu Cameron, Operations Manager at NAMI-NYC.
The team at NAMI-NYC was impressed with Bloomerang’s cloud-based software and knowledgeable customer support team. “We loved the cloud-based platform so that we were no longer bogged down to a cpu specific database. The one feature that makes a world of difference would be the Live Chat online feature when dealing with an issue or question.”
At the end of the day, NAMI-NYC had found a solution with the functionality they needed and the level of professional support that goes with that. “Bloomerang is a user friendly database, backed up by an amazing support team to answer any questions and help with any issues you may have!”
Since implementing Bloomerang, NAMI-NYC has seen several fundraising pain points be alleviated. “It allows us ease in regards to seeing how and when our donors have given to the organization in a quick snapshot without having to go through the hassle of pulling a report.”
Bloomerang has also fit nicely into NAMI-NYC’s donor retention and gift development processes with its Social Listening feature. “One way a NAMI can benefit from using Bloomerang would be via the social media pull connecting donors and their social media handles with our organization. It’s a great way to see what interests our donors have in regards to their philanthropic giving so that we can in turn create new ways to cultivate their fundraising efforts with our organization.”
It’s amazing what a user-friendly, donor retention focused tool can do for the growth of an organization such as NAMI-NYC.
