Integrating your online fundraising with Raiser’s Edge
Raiser’s Edge by Blackbaud is a nonprofit CRM (customer relationship management) or donor database. It is primarily used by larger nonprofits to hold donor data and help manage their relationships with those donors.
Raiser’s Edge is a well-established product with a good reputation as a donor database—a reputation that does not always extend to the online fundraising tools offered by Blackbaud.
Nonprofits that use Raiser’s Edge often want to use a more user-friendly and affordable online fundraising platform like 4aGoodCause but struggle with how to get donor and donation data out of that fundraising platform and into their Raiser’s Edge database.
I’m happy to announce the answer to end that struggle: Importacular. Importacular is a free import tool for Raiser’s Edge provided by long-time Raiser’s Edge expert Zeidman Development.
- Completely customizable mapping
- Completely customizable matching criteria
- Ability to import into Bio 1, Bio 2 and Gift for free, with affordable subscriptions for other areas
Importacular works with both the desktop version of Raiser’s Edge and the online Raiser’s Edge NXT.
Visit the Zeidman website to learn more about Importacular, view a demo or find out how to obtain the tool.
