Compare DonorPerfect and Salesforce
Which Fundraising CRM is Best for Your Nonprofit?
Choosing a nonprofit CRM that’s designed specifically for fundraising operations is better for your budget. Unlike DonorPerfect, Salesforce requires configuration, regular maintenance, and education in order for nonprofits to perform common fundraising tasks like generate thank yous and receipts, process online donations, manage monthly giving, etc. These extra requirements rack up costs beyond the base price.
Out of the box, most DonorPerfect subscriptions provide the tools and features you need to function as a fundraising operation, including:
- Unlimited, customizable online forms for online giving, event registration, surveys, volunteer sign-ups and hour logging, and more
- Payment processing of one-time and automatic recurring payments
- Data-backed email marketing via Constant Contact
- Unlimited user logins
Additionally, DonorPerfect is built for fundraising and is top-rated for value, ease of use, support, and functionality, which makes it more likely to be a better choice to help you reach your mission’s goals.
