What do you like best about this product?

After using The Raiser’s Edge almost exclusively for 15 years I can say you will be hard-pressed to find a better nonprofit database! As the industry leader, Raiser’s Edge incorporates everything you need in one extremely easy to use package that has more powerful features behind it than most nonprofits can use. The only downside is the price is steep for some organizations, so you have to consider how much you will really use all of its more advanced features. But for organizations with a robust fundraising program it is completely worth the investment!
