Eligible for 1 CFRE Education Point
What's the best fundraising software for nonprofits? The surprising answer is that nothing is "the best." There are only solutions that best fit YOUR organization. Finding the right solution to meet your organization's unique needs and goals depends on a lot of factors:
- Your existing tech stack.
- Your mix of programs.
- The size of your revenue streams.
- The readiness of your staff to adopt a new solution.
Before considering specific software or scheduling demos, you should thoroughly assess your tech and people. How? Sally Heaven and Charlotte Kresse from Raise HECK will provide step-by-step instructions on conducting an assessment and offer actionable tips to help you be a better software buyer and tame the dreaded RFP.
