Too Much Technology and Too Little Time: How to Efficiently Audit Fundraising Platforms
Evertrue, Blackbaud, Give Campus, BoostMySchool, Graduway‚ and now Zoom, ThankView, and more! There are SO many technology options for advancement professionals to use and not enough time to dedicate to determining which ones are the best for your office. This presentation will walk you through what we learned after analyzing four programs already in-use and over five potential platforms for adoption. Ultimately, we non-renewed three contracts and adopted two new programs, saved money, and implemented one of the programs to launch our first-ever giving day – all in just one month. After almost a year to reflect on the decisions made and to put the products we purchased to work, this presentation will be an honest conversation about what we learned with hopes of helping other schools confidently embark on the undertaking of auditing and restructuring their technology, even on top of everything else!
