Having trouble with your Raiser’s Edge™ database?

Living in a dirty Raiser’s Edge™ database is like trying to paddle upstream, while at the same time, trying to bail water out of your leaky boat. It's daunting and exhausting. 

And, the thought of cleaning it up can be overwhelming. already have a full time job!

Here's what we hear from our clients. Let me know if any of these resonate:

  • Nobody trusts the database
  • I have to manually manipulate data in Excel
  • I need help figuring out how to code gifts and constituents
  • The idea of importing and doing global changes scares me
  • With so many things wrong, I'm not sure where to start
  • I don't know the best order in which clean up my database
  • My reports and mailing lists have issues

Your database is one of the best tools in your fundraising toolkit. Instead of fighting it like a tiger, let's get it to work for you!

You are sitting on a mountain of donor and transaction data that could drive strategic decision-making and produce actionable reports.  The years and years of giving histories stored in your database should be working for you, but in reality, it is one of the messiest, hardest elements to manage in the development department.

Are you ready to make a change? If so, let's fix these things together!
