Fundraising whatever your focus
We understand the unique pressures of fundraising, and were here to help you rise to the challenge.
With donorflex, you have the tools to not only manage your data, but to make it work for you and your cause.
Think of what you do with all of the members of your community. You go to see them, they come to see you. You provide a ready supply of support and encouragement, they provide a following and donations. All of this means that timely, focused communication is a huge priority. With donorflex, you can track and develop your relationships, making sure that your community continues to reap dividends for years to come.
We know that the work of a trust fundraiser is methodical and requires answers to many important questions what funds are available, when, how often, for what purpose. All of this information needs to be collected, collated, profiled, and exploited to turn your initial approach into a red-letter day.
Whether its through payroll giving, charity of the year initiatives, or volunteer work, companies can play a big part in your success. With donorflex, you have the tools you need to maintain these important links.
Your events from conferences to walkathons are an integral part of your operation. donorflex enables you to track resource requirements, sponsor links, income, costs, and supporter specifications. And, when you have things set up the way you want, you can re-use the template year on year.
Finance take care of the pennies
At donorflex attention to detail is key, especially when it comes to handling the vital funds that make such a difference to your cause.
Our software integrates perfectly with products like Sage, producing financial reports that are accurate and reliable.
More than money
When a supporter gives you money, its crucial that you know where its going. donorflexs extensive facilities for inputting, amending, and tracking donations gives you much-needed peace of mind.
But getting the money isnt the final step. donorflex helps you deal with Gift Aid, lets you produce thank-you letters, and gives you the means to create audit reports.
Managing your income well involves making important strategic decisions thats why a tool like donorflex adds such value to your organisation. Making the most out of every donation means that your efforts are rewarded, and your cause benefits from your hard work.
Regular giving agreements provide you with income over a long period. We know how important these funds are to your organisation, and thats why we designed our software to track every aspect from initial set-up through to renewal monitoring.
Direct Debit, Standing Order, and payroll giving payments can all be imported, and our enquiries and reports allow you to find and produce key management information.
The second file, which had over 1,000 Direct Debits, imported fine and dealt with all the rejections... This module is a great help and will save so much time Helen & Douglas House Hospices accounts office after the Direct Debits module implementation
Supporters might have a specific wish for how their donation should be used, which means that you have to identify these prescribed funds very clearly. donorflex lets you manage this fund-based income and handle the necessary disbursements.

Knowing what makes your supporters tick is vital to building a relationship with them. donorflex gives you the tools, starting with ABC:
