St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School assists parents with the education and formation of their children in Truth, Goodness, and Beauty through a Christ-centered environment, challenging academics, and hands-on learning so that each child becomes a disciple of Christ and is prepared to respond to God’s call.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School was looking for easy-to-use donor management software that could streamline their processes and keep all their data stored in one accessible place. “We had our data in too many places. Every time I wanted to mail or email something, I had to combine spreadsheets and never felt I was including everyone I wanted to,” said Missi Adami, Development Director at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School.
After getting a Bloomerang recommendation from a fundraising consulting firm, Missi agreed that it could be the solution to their donor data challenges. With Bloomerang, Missi also found that her day-to-day development responsibilities could be a little more manageable. “I am able to be much more consistent with my communications which helps our relationship with our donors.”
Missi recommends Bloomerang to other Catholic schools that could benefit from an intuitive system to empower their development decisions. “I do think Bloomerang is a good product for a small development office. It is simple to use if database management is not your strongest suit.”
Since implementing Bloomerang, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School has alleviated several fundraising pain points through its reporting capabilities, which in turn has given them the ability to make more informed decisions about their donor data. “Bloomerang streamlined our donor database to one system. It also helps me remember when and how I have communicated with the donor.”
Missi and the team at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School have found that Bloomerang fits nicely into their current gift development processes while enhancing what they already have working for them by having an all-in-one system that fits their needs. “Truly keeping my data organized and allowing me to easily communicate with my constituents has been a lifesaver.”
Missi has also been able to see significant improvements in the quality of their constituent communications through segmentation capabilities, as well as increased productivity and efficiency. “Improved productivity and consistent constituent communication have truly made me better able to fill my role as development director. I feel I am able to be more organized and plan in my processes thanks to Bloomerang. I look forward to continuing to improve in this area.”
All in all, it’s amazing what an easy-to-use, fundraising-focused database can do for the growth of Catholic schools such as St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School.
