Finding the right donor database for your nonprofit doesn’t have to be a painful process. Dare I say, it might even be fun…?

Okay, I don’t want to lie to you. It’s pretty grueling.

BUT some of the issues that cause the most headaches during a database implementation process can be solved. They are not just par for the course.

In this episode, we’re demystifying donor databases. I walk you through seven factors to consider when you’re looking for a new donor database. There’s A LOT of information packed into this episode, so I’ve also created a handy worksheet to walk you through the process.

Grab a notebook, a cup of something caffeinated and enjoy the third and final episode of our Fundraising Mini Series.

BTW, in the episode I talk about database upkeep once you’ve got it up and running. This article is a great resource to help you determine what you need to do to keep your new database clean and current.
