The Donor Management System (DMS) is a key component of your fundraising and development strategy. It’s more than just a database to contain your historical record of donations; today’s CRMS (Constituent Relationship Management Systems) are designed to keep track of every contact you make with your constituents (donors and prospects) whether by phone, email, letter, eblast, blog, newsletter, event, or in person. DMS contain multiple modules from gifts and grants management, to event and volunteer management, to analysis and reporting. This workshop gives an overview of some of the software, compares features and helps nonprofits understand what to look for in a DMS/CRMS based upon their organization’s needs, size & growth plan, and budget.
