What is a Donor Management Software?
Donor management solutions are mostly used by non-profit organizations to manage relationships with their donors. The software allows them to manage donor information, keep track of individual donations, and rely on the accumulated data when making strategic decisions.
What data should non-profits collect?
Non-profits should collect the data they are going to use later on in their day-to-day operations, and that can be different for each specific organization. If an organization isn’t sure what data to collect, one way to address this would be doing a data audit. Nevertheless, here are some common data types that non-profits can consider for collection and analysis:
- Donor or grantee profiles
- Contribution histories
- Project or grant reports
- Interviews with partners
- Trip reports
Do I need a Softr account to use the template?
As soon as you click the Use the template button, you'll be immediately taken to Softr studio and can start working on the template. If you don't have a Softr account, you'll be prompted to register first (a Free account will work just fine).
Can I use the Donation Tracker template with a free Softr account?
All the Softr templates are completely free of charge and can be used with any of the Softr subscription plans. However, Free and Starter plans have a limitation on the number of application users, so you might need to consider a higher subscription plan if you need to have full Memberships access.
What are the benefits of using Softr together with Google Sheets?
Our users decide to use Softr on top of Google Spreadsheets for several reasons. The most common are:
- You will have a responsible and professional-looking user interface to share with clients, colleagues, and users on your domain (included for free!)
- You will be able to manage different people's permissions at a granular level. Say goodbye to just "viewers" and "editors". You can decide which group of users can see and/or edit specific content.
- You can merge several data sources all in one application. Do you want to connect three spreadsheets to the same app? Do you want to get data from other sources too? Not a problem with a Softr application!
