The St. Thomas More Catholic Newman Center (STMCNC), the Catholic campus ministry at Minnesota State University, Mankato, supports the spiritual development of approximately 4,000 college students during a critical transitional time of their lives.
Adam Murray, Director of Development, was struggling with Giftworks’ non-cloud-version and lack of mobile capabilities. He was drawn to Bloomerang’s low-cost and simple design.
When STMCNC implemented Bloomerang it instantly revitalized Adam’s one-man development department.
“Our ministry is composed of four staff members and my focus is strictly development, meaning I am the only team member who uses Bloomerang. I use Bloomerang for all mailings, contact reports, transactions, end-of-year reports, receipts, thank you notes, and anything else associated with donor relations. The product interface is wonderfully easy to use, whether you work in it every day or once a month.”
Adam loves the versatility that Bloomerang offers.
“I was finally able to access our database while traveling. For example, our old software required me to print out past contact reports as well as contact information for when I went on visits. After our switch, I am now able to call benefactors without even dialing their phone numbers! The constituent thermometer makes it very easy to see how connected each benefactor is.”
“Not only is the product easy to use, but customer service is also fantastic. The Bloomerang Academy offers a free weekly webinar that touches on all aspects of development. Bloomerang caters to every need of the customer!”
