I use Bonterra to manage all of our fundraising efforts. I am able to have all things in one place, and able to manage all things simultaneously. The platform is easy to use and I am able to get in, do what I need to do, and get out. I am glad we are using Bonterra to run all of our fundraising efforts.
  • It helps to manage all donors
  • We are able to acknowledge all donors
  • We are able to keep track of all money being raised
  • Be more communicative to users outside of just letting us know about donations recieved
  • Provide more detailed workshops on specific services
  • Provide an email summary of monthly activity, including donations, acknowledgements, etcetera.

We are using Bonterra to help with organizing our Fundraising campaigns, maintain records of our volunteers and donors, and run analytics on giving. The platform has reduced using excel and other cumbersome programs. Bonterra has allowed our nonprofit to become more efficient with the data and output of what we are doing.
  • collate information
  • quick analysis of donor information
  • fundraising platform
  • quick customer service
  • ways to contact donors if they do not have an email address
  • importing contacts be cumbersome if not formatted right
  • N/A
I believe that when I have a question customer support is always there to help me. I am computer database literate but feel that someone who may not be tech-savvy can navigate this system well. Additionally, the reports the program generates is always quality and it can be customized to suit the needs of the customer.

Donor software tracking; donations and reporting. Plus we send eblasts, videos, thank yous—generally maintain a patron client base and maintain board reporting.

We find customer service Excellent: quick and accurate.

Also easy to use, accessible to various levels of authority from Boards to Interns, maintaining appropriate security and confidentiality
  • Customer Service
  • Communication with data base
  • Building guided programming for campaigns
  • Easy tracking for manual and online donations
  • Great training
  • Eliminating duplicate files
  • Easier and more immediate refunds
  • Capacity to track membership
Highly recommended! This is an excellent software at a good price to get easy accessibility for all members of staff, the board and volunteers. The Dashboard gives easy graphics that explain our progress and where we need to improve. Customer service is great. Our donations went up year after year through more consistent communication and the software’s easy to follow campaigns. Network for Good took a complex professional field and turned it into something as easy as talking to our neighbors and friends over the backyard fence.

We currently work with over 500 donors, 200 clients, and 100 volunteers. NFG has been a lifesaver in keeping track of all of our information and also getting information out. I am constantly learning new ways to use NFG, and realizing how many resources it offers wrapped up in one program. It is so nice having everything in one place.
  • creating mass emails, texts, newsletters
  • keeping track of donor status, donations
  • creating ticketed fundraisers
  • More webinars on using NFG effectively
The only reason I gave it a 9 is because I need all the webinars I can get!

We currently use Network For Good daily. We use it for donor/donation tracking, record keeping, and for creating thank yous. Overall, we have not come across any problems in using this system. One thing that would be helpful to me would be the ability to save a document in a donor record.
  • Donor Management Tracking
  • Filters for lists
  • Contact Info
  • Notes Section
  • Email Marketing Campaign Layout SImplified
  • Work profiles on contacts
Network for Good has been incredibly rewarding for us in the past year. Personally, I think its the best CRM available for a non-profit like us. Other systems I have used like SalesForce seem to be a step down in quality. The notes section in Network for Good would be my biggest issue as it seems very basic to use for conversation tracking amongst donors.

We use Network for Good the donate location on our web page and to track all those donations. Then after the donations it will generate a thank you letter for the donation. So, we know where all of our donations come from for tax purposes. We also us Network for Good as a communication tool for all of donors and sponsors. We use the email communication to keep up our base to date of all of our fundraising events. We, also use the email communication for a quarterly newsletter that we send out to everyone. The other thing we use it for is our direct mail thank you letters for all our sponsors and organizations that sponsor or donate items to our fundraising events. We also use the giving page to create fundraising campaigns during the year. It has made it so easy to keep track of all of our donors and followers. We have the database in one place, and we can send out mass emails and direct emails instantly and keeping track of all of our donations for tax purposes. A great time saver!!!!

We have used NFG since 2013 to help with online donations, donor management, fundraising, events, auctions, and reporting. As a 1-staff office, NFG has filled the "position" of donor management staff. I am able to whip up reports, analyze patterns of giving (or not giving), update donor records, and so much more. We have used the auction service since 2021, with our 3rd annual online silent auction being produced as I type. We have used the event tools to manage attendees, sponsors, and create reports. The customer service is excellent. And as a small nonprofit, the use of ease of the products and customer-friendly support are both extremely important.
  • donor management records
  • ability to create various reports easily
  • silent auction tool
  • excellent customer service
  • volunteer data management
  • rates increasing – we may be priced out of the service soon
Specifically, the customer service is one of the best of any online service we have used. The staff is respectful and speedy, and I have never had any occasion to be disappointed in their help. The silent auction tool we have used for the past two online silent auctions has been excellent. We are about to use the new service. I've been working on setting it up, and so far, so good. We would really like to track our volunteers in Network for Good somehow. Not to do recruitment or volunteer forms, as we don't use public recruitment of volunteers for our use. However, volunteer hours are very important as we do fundraising and grantwriting, as they show our excellent relationship with the community. I'd like to be able to track the volunteer hours... especially if they are also donors. I sure would appreciate a REAL text-to-give, where it's not 10 numbers to text-to-give but just 6 or so. We have tried using this and the feedback we have gotten is "This isn't so easy." To be able to say: "Text MITTENS to 123456" is a lot cleaner than "Text MITTENS to 888-888-8888." Granted this is a small thing, but this is what people ask about.

We use Network for Good for online payment processing, donor/contact management, and as our communication platform with donors. Before NFG, we used various spreadsheets and systems to track this data. That was very cumbersome and difficult to integrate. It was also time consuming for our small staff. Our process around donor management and engagement is now much more efficient since implementing NFG.
  • Tracking all interactions with a contact
  • Easy creation of impactful donor communications
  • Allow creation of an impactful donations webpage
  • For what I need and am able to do with my time, there really isn't any area I find needing improvement.
Network for Good is a great tool for small, people-resource constrained non-profits that need help managing their contact/donor data and are looking to get more engagement from donors. I researched several donor management systems before deciding to go with Network for Good. Their system was easy to learn for someone who is not very tech oriented and there are so many tools and templates available to help you get started. It may not be as robust as some of the other tools out there, but it gives you the basic features and for someone just starting out on a donor management journey this is a great system.

The River City Journalism Fund uses Network for Good as our development database. We not only collect and track all of our donations through Network for Good, but we also send e-blasts and newsletters for both informational and fundraising purposes through the database.
  • Keeping track of donors
  • Sending thank you's to donors
  • Sending e-blasts and newsletters
  • Donor supplemental info, which is an add-on to Network for Good, is not especially robust or helpful
For a small- to medium-sized nonprofit, Network for Good offers excellent functionality. It's relatively intuitive, but during the initial setup, Network for Good offers excellent support and instruction. They've also proven quite responsive when specific questions arise.

Network for Good makes it easy for us to have an ongoing fundraising campaign as well as a specific campaign for a project. Creating a giving page & sending it out to donors can all be done within minutes. There was a Zoom group training (recorded so you can go back to it) to show us how to create a page, plus our fundraising coach walked us through it while we created our first page. User-friendly!

With Network for Good, you can track group communication & see the statistics, for example, of emails delivered, opened or deleted. You can resend an email to only those who didn’t open it the first time.

It makes it much easier to communicate with our donors with options to text, email, text a video, find an address for a letter. It’s all in one place. Mahalo NUI to Network for Good & our Coach John Gilchrist!
  • Fundraising coaching
  • Options to communicate w/donors
  • Tracking giving & communication for individual donors
  • Connecting household members
We are a small non-profit organization (2 full-time staff & 2 part-time staff) & the price point to purchase Network for Good was what we could afford for the number of donors/volunteers that we needed to manage.

We didn’t need a huge system, but something that could track over a thousand donors/volunteers with room for more & also is user-friendly.
It would have been amazing to have this product from day one of our organization!

We use Network for Good daily at First Call For Help. Whether it be inputting data for the donations we receive through the mail, checking our online donations, and to reference when writing thank you cards to our donors. Our Monday Minute is a newsletter we send out on, you guessed it, Mondays, and we email it to all of our contacts through Network For Good. The convenience of donations tracked in one place solves our problem of needing to figure donor totals at the end of the year for tax purposes.
  • Campaign totals
  • Tracks donors
  • Reporting
  • Communication with donors
  • I know there are areas in Network for Good we don't use at our Non-profit and there may be areas that can improve, but the resources we utilize are easy enough to follow.
First Call For Help holds 2 different fundraising Campaigns each year, a Spring and a Holiday Mail event. Network for Good has been great to collect the donations and report how the campaign is progressing. It tracks our donors and shows how their giving compares year to year which is helpful. When donors are falling behind or no longer giving, this tells us we need to communicate better with them by encouraging different ways donors may choose to become more involved in our organization and support our mission again.

Paladin struggled with maintaining donor information. The agency used one system to collect donations, and a second system to collect donor information. Paladin's interest in Network for Good stemmed from the ability to collect donations and donor information within one system.
  • Capable of setting up e-mail groups to send information pertinent to the group
  • The customer support has been fantastic from setting up the system to coming up with strategies to maximize fund-raising
  • The system is user-friendly and easy to learn
  • The challenge was setting up donor information in a format that was compatible with the Network for Good system
Organizations who rely on fund-raising to support operations. The system has the flexibility to maintain a donor base, and group the donors based on areas of interest in the agency. Paladin has a wide range of services, so not all donors are interested in all the services available. Network for Good allows the agency to recognize where a donor's interest lies and adapt the information specific to just that area.

If an organization has targeted fund-raising activities, you cannot use the basic level of the system. When Paladin started with Network for Good, we were not aware of this. When we set up the system for the annual golf outing, that is when we learned we had to pay an additional amount for targetted events.

I utilize Network For Good as our Donor Data Base. Here, I record all donations and generate acknowledgments. I can easily create themed acknowledgments for all kinds of donation scenarios including, every day giving donors, recurring donors, event donors, direct mail donors, and ticket purchasers. I utilize the campaign/designation categories so that I know where every donation is from and going. This makes for easy sorts to pull up information for analytics. I use communications to create monthly e-blasts and special email reminders. I also create forms for individuals to sign up for groups, training, events, and volunteering.
  • NFG eliminates the need for other systems to handle monthly emails or newsletters.
  • Designations feature works perfectly for our needs.
  • Donors' ability to create passwords and log in to manage their credit card information or review donations is appreciated.
  • Monthly donations are supported.
  • User-friendly forms and the ability to include videos.
  • Excellent communication and support.
  • For the default footer in acknowledgments, the phone number is not included and we are unable to add the phone number.
  • In My Tasks, the order of tasks changes every time I delete a task. It would be helpful if they stayed in the order I entered them so I could find the task I am looking for easier.
  • When I view a sent email, there is an option to resend it, BUT I cannot edit the email before I resend.
  • It is great to be able to schedule email blasts to a group of people. But I would like to be able to send an acknowledgment to a first time donor and then schedule a "new donor welcome email" to go out to this individual donor at a later date.
Network for Good works really well for us as a smaller nonprofit. Personalization is a key feature I love (although it would become challenging with a large number of donors because there is no batch acknowledgment feature). I use the Communication tab to create acknowledgment emails that are specific to each campaign donation. I am able to personalize these with an edit feature before I send them off to the donor. I can easily see the donor's contact page to note if this is a new donor, current donor, or lapsed donor and personalize accordingly. On the donor's contact page, I can see if they have received and opened emails which help me decide if a written acknowledgment would be better going forward. I appreciate that Network for Good eliminates the need for other systems to handle monthly emails or newsletters, campaigns, and event registration.

Network for Good is a critical tool for my animal rescue non-profit. It allows me to gain greater outreach and enables me to track donations and supporters. It also allows me to use tools such as video thank you's and text messages that other platforms do not offer which results in greater success and raising awareness for the work we do.

We use it increasingly now for donor appeals, event planning/management/evaluations; strategic automated communications; building support networks; event and Campaign websites. Year-end report data generation, categorizing donors, etc. The program provides systems necessary for easily accessible back office support. We experienced a learning curve initially, however the readily available tutorials, and customer support services have made it possible to move beyond that initial roadblock.
  • Tracks and classifies donor participation
  • Provides communication templates
  • Responds quickly to requests for assistance
  • Networks with other nonprofits
  • Provides multiple services in one site
  • Serves as a donor platform- acknowledges receipt of donations
  • Serves as a repository of important 990 information re; donor appeals. Etc.
  • Provides mechanism for immediate feedback to and from attendees at events
  • Sometimes the site feels too busy on the administrator - there is a lot to track. Requires serious attention from the site administrator
  • It would be helpful to interface all contacts even from other programs with our network for Good Platform automatically.
  • I would make direct deposit the automatic default for receipt of funds
Best suited for donor appeals/communication/follow-ups.
Great comprehensive event planning site - bringing a suite of online support services and pre/post event follow-ups. We used it most recently for out annual program gala and age now in the process of using it to weave the gala seamlessly into our ongoing project and program avyibotird.

Network for Good has allowed our small non-profit the ability to consolidate many of the tasks we perform on a daily basis into one platform and with great ease. Having this consolidated platform has streamlined many things that use to take many steps to complete so that we are more efficient with our time and able to dedicate more time to those we serve.
  • Timely Communication
  • Helpful Customer Service
  • Friendly Staff
  • Adding more functions to use besides for fundraising
  • Creating email blasts from scratch

After years of trying to force-fit donor management into an application primarily designed for document management, we came across Network For Good and were impressed by the breadth of functionality it offered: database management, communication, campaign management and tracking, and event management (including ticketing and auctions).
  • Top-notch customer service! The Network For Good team is responsive, genuinely courteous, and knowledgeable about the product.
  • Communication options are available for all donor preferences, from good old-fashioned direct mail to email, text, and video. And all are easy to use!
  • Creating forms for surveys and other data capturing is very easy, as is construction of reports on donors and donations for management use.
  • Love the format options and drag-and-drop functionality -- including embedding videos -- for newsletters and email engagements.
  • Would love to be able to modify my dashboard to graph and chart the campaigns and designations I want to see. I don't understand the algorithms behind what is served up for display. For instance, would like to be able to separate members from donors on the dashboard.
  • Would like to see the donation refund process an online process.
  • When cloning a form, such as for a survey, would like to be able to change a question or field without having it affect prior forms.
I have used other similar donor management/communication products and have found that Network For Good offers the best of all functions.

I use it to streamline donor management and communication. The agency's previous database was outdated and restrictive, there was no easy way to view trends and lapses. The last person in charge did not believe in email, so there were no email addresses attached to donor records and no way to communicate with them other than snail mail. There was lots of wasted effort and paper, which no longer happens using Network for Good.
  • We imported the last six years of data and were able to reach out to people who hadn't been contacted in that amount of time (thank you, "Lapsed Donor" indication), reviving the relationship and receiving new donations.
  • It's so easy to dash off a quick personalized thank you to event participants when they buy through a NFG link -- we don't generally send individual thanks to people who purchase tickets since they don't always purchase through us, so it's nice to be able to do that easily when they do.
  • I'm a visual person so I appreciate the graphs and charts--they are gratifying!
  • I wish there was a field where I could enter a main contact person for an organization without that person having to already be an individual contact-- some of these organizations change responsible parties all the time
  • It would be nice to be able to merge campaigns. I had created one and entered some donations manually. Then I imported a bunch more and named it the same, assuming they would go into the existing campaign. But they did not, and I ended up with two campaigns of the same name, had to move them all manually and then delete the one I had emptied.
  • I'm not crazy about in-kind donations values being lumped into funds raised, since we don't actually realize the dollar value on many of those.
I love that donors can be categorized in more than one way. For instance, at my old job donors could be only one "type." It was a school and church, and I personally fit three different profiles: alumni, parishioner, and current school parent. But I could only be classified as ONE of those things. The agency where I now use NFG also has people that fit more than one profile, so it's nice to be able to categorize them in every way they fit.

As a non=profit, we use it to organize and document our non-cash and cash donors. We send each donor either a mailed or emailed thank you letter using this data base. We also use the email group within Network for Group to make all contributors aware of our services we deliver, upcoming activities and events.
  • Organized database with good details and prompts for complete files
  • Tabulates reports of donors daily and over time
  • Makes the organization more transparent to all stakeholders
  • Helps with lapsed donors
  • Reminds staff of fundraising deadlines
  • Individual contact listing being required before the company or business causes some business to be dropped if the individual leaves the business
  • when you have a donor who donated both as a business and as an individual sometimes one or the other does not come up in the listing when you search for an amount for the year
  • FaceBook donations being identified by at least who did the fundraiser, not the donors. I do a birthday fundraiser every year for Caring Carroll and there is no indication that it came from me. The money comes in but we do not know where it came from who held the fundraiser.
  • The fact that the FaceBook donations go into our Network for Good database before we even have the money is confusing.
We had been doing all our documentation of our contributors and donors using old school systems that really were not designed to keep track of money. Network for Good is definitely designed for that specific use. It was also affordable. We looked at other systems but we could not afford them.
It is user friendly. With the prompts throughout the entry, even a volunteer can do the data entry.

Network for Good is a great tool for any size nonprofit working on fundraising. We are a small nonprofit and were worried about using such a powerful product. We received great training and a coach to help us think through any issues. There is a beginning training that really helps you get onboarded with a live person, this resource alone was gold. Then they offer other training if you need them. The coach meets with you and helps you plan, organized, and problem-solve campaigns. Some accountability built in to help you achieve your goals. The program is easy to use and has a dashboard where you can see everything you might need on one screen. There is a database where you input your contacts, and if you have them in another form there are other people available to help you insert your contacts into the software. We used email, and texts and sent out a video with this program. We raised double what we raised last year online. We learned several things about fundraising, the software made us get organized and start plotting our next fundraising campaign.
  • You can create donor surveys to use
  • Tracking through clicks, conversion rates, location and many other ways to track donors
  • You can connect your campaign to google ads
  • Showing users how to download things from the database
  • Allowing mailing labels to be created from the database
Network for good is great for small or large nonprofits that want to fundraise.

However, if you all ready have a strategic fundraising database this might not be the ideal software for you.

As a donor management system, it has simplified reporting and makes donor engagement very simple.
  • NFG offers At-a-glance donor snapshots
  • easy reporting with NFG
  • ease of email eblasts
  • ease of multi-channel marketing
  • We'd like to add grantors into the system but exclude them where appropriate
  • do not like that ticket holders and sponsors are not treated as donors
  • Lapsed donors usually is accurate but double entry or donors creates confusion
Network for good's Jumpstart program was a great way for a small NPO to buy the software. Their coaching sessions are fabulous and we continue to use our fundraising coach!

I use Network for Good for fundraising, sending newsletters, and CRM management. I needed a centralized system that would allow me to start building and tracking donor information, such as contact information, amounts and frequency of donations, and who was actually seeing our emails. What I have discovered in just three months is that it is an incredible source of ideas for fundraising, layouts for newsletters & fundraising emails. They also have recommendations for using our followers to help us fundraise, they track everything about our donors that we could ever want to know, and best of all, they can send automatic thank you emails! This is important but often slips through the cracks with my busy schedule. As I use the platform, I discover more and more, but support is just a click or call away! The customer service team is friendly and fun and understands the non-profit world and its challenges.
I look forward to discovering more features as I continue to become familiar with the platform.
  • Offer templates for fundraising emails
  • Keeping donor history
  • Tracking over all donations
  • Tracking the effectiveness of different fundraising campaigns
  • Customer service
  • The only thing that I can think of is the price. For a small rural non-profit, the expense so far, outweighs the income.
Some of the biggest selling points for me were:
  • They downloaded my contacts into their system with a variety of categories at no extra charge
  • The templates and fundraising ideas
  • The ability to set up a variety of campaigns that I can run in various places; email, social media, live events
  • The analytics. I think they have thought of everything in this category!
