DonorPerfect Integrations Make Our Software Even More Perfect!

DonorPerfect Integrations SofterWare is continually investing to improve DonorPerfect by enhancing existing features and adding new capabilities. In fact, we’ve more than doubled the size of our development team over the last couple of years! Even with all of that investment, we recognize that we can’t create solutions that solve every need of every client. The good news is that there are lots of talented software developers creating great solutions for a wide variety of needs, even beyond the nonprofit community. The bad news is that often, these solutions are created as stand-alone products that don’t integrate with products like DonorPerfect, which serve as a nonprofit’s primary constituent database.

The Benefits of DonorPerfect Integrations

We offer many DonorPerfect integrations so you can manage all of your fundraising efforts in a single, unified database. Examples include our integration with Constant Contact for email marketing and DonorSearch for prospect research. DonorShops, Crowdfunding, and WebLink integrate with DonorPerfect for online giving and e-commerce. DonorPerfect integrations also include many popular general-purpose software products like Microsoft Word, Excel, and Intuit QuickBooks.

Options Are Endless Thanks to Our Flexible APIs

To make integration easier, we developed Application Programming Interfaces, commonly referred to as APIs, which provide structured access to the data in DonorPerfect, making it possible for any programmer to access, update, or add data in DonorPerfect. These APIs to expand the assortment of add-on products available to DonorPerfect clients. DonorPerfect Mobile, DonorShops, Agile Ticketing, as well as custom integrations created by individual customers use our APIs.

Finding Integrations for Your Organization is Easy

Acting as a central hub where clients can find DonorPerfect’s integrations, the DonorPerfect Integrations and Partners offers summaries, reviews and ratings, and the option for you to request more information to learn what’s best for your organization.

Other solutions include advocacy, alumni engagement, data enhancement, matching gift management, special events, website content management, and more.
