Land Trust Moves from Home Grown System to a New Home with DonorPerfect!

DonorPerfect Client Logo

Since 1972, Five Valleys Land Trust's mission has been to protect and preserve western Montana's natural legacy – our river corridors, wildlife habitat, agricultural lands, and scenic open spaces. Five Valleys has 11 staff members (9 full-time and 2 part-time) and utilizes 40 active volunteers, with a volunteer list of over 100.

Business Challenge

Glenn Marangelo, Development Director since May 2005, noted "Our old database was seriously outdated and could not adequately handle the functions we wanted it to. It was clunky to pull information from it, to export information from/into it, and did not easily record and track all of the information we wanted – especially in regard to major donors. Also, our monthly giving program (separate from the database) was becoming harder and more expensive to manage every month."

DonorPerfect Online Benefits

  • "Our DonorPerfect system was set up quickly and it was so easy to gain proficiency in using it from day one."
  • "I can quickly pull up my most frequently used reports and can easily create a report for just about anything without complication."
  • "We've significantly increased our major donor cultivation and stewardship efforts by better integrating and utilizing our staff and board's personal connections to our supporters."
