Donor database

Bloomerang’s donor database allows organizations to retain more donors, enhance communication, find better gift prospects, understand how donors feel about the organization, and report on key metrics. The system’s interactive dashboard lets users review donor retention rates, view suggestions for improvement, and see incoming donations for the week/month/year. Users can also monitor campaigns, create tasks, and analyze results.

In addition, the software has an Engagement Meter that gives an at-a-glance view of a constituent’s current engagement with the organization. Constituents get scores based on past interactions, including giving, volunteerism, and marketing engagement.

Reporting and analytics

With Bloomerang’s reporting and analytics tools, organizations can learn more about how and why donors give. Users can generate comprehensive reports for the team and board members and create segmented lists for presentations, marketing campaigns, fundraising, and annual planning.

Bloomerang offers standard reports for fundraisers, including LYBUNT, SYBUNT, Pledge Reminders, and Downgrades. Users can also find built-in templates for reports showing one-time donors, household averages, and lapsed donors.

Online giving

Bloomerang’s Online Giving tools streamline accepting donations wherever the donors are. Nonprofit organizations can create custom donation and event landing pages and sell event tickets.

Teams can manage all fundraising tools—website donation forms, peer-to-peer features, and donor portals and track data in one place. The software saves time by enabling donors to view their giving history, update their credit card information, and manage recurring gifts through their Donor Portal.

Marketing and engagement

The solution’s marketing and engagement tools connect organizations to volunteers, donors, and the community. Organizations can send personalized emails, letters and mailings, acknowledgments, and surveys to build strong relationships.

Additionally, with Bloomerang’s built-in email marketing tools, teams don’t have to use a separate application to design and send email newsletters, appeals, and acknowledgments. Users can also utilize the email scheduling feature to send email campaigns on the date and time of their choosing.
