Pros: The Fundraising Report Card tool is a dream come true for any fundraising professional who has been spending years having to slice and dice data in using data dumps in excel or having to wait weeks for more sophisticated reports. This tool can be used in a matter of moments to create real reports that help identify strengths/weaknesses of fundraising initiatives and makes it possible to be more nimble to adjust fundraising strategies. I also was impressed with the level of knowledge and support from Zachary Shefska who walked me through the tool. The Fundraising Report Card is truly a game changer for anyone who does not readily have access to important fundraising reports like donor retention, acquisition, lifetime value, etc. Simply amazing.

I LOVE Fundraising Report Card. When I discovered the site, I figured I was going to get roped in to some sales heavy demo just to see the product at work. There was NONE of that! Customer rep and his team do a remarkable job at helping organizations visualize key performance indicators of its donor base--in seconds.

I am so grateful that FRC exists! Thanks folks!

Comments: I found this product very useful. I used the free version. I was able to use it for a report that I did for our board. I appreciated how accessible rep was. He spent over a half hour talking to me on the phone, helping me get a sense of what I was looking at.

Comments: I was intimidated by how much time and work a process to collect, track, and analyze a donor's gift history would require, so I did not prioritize it...until I saw a demo of how the Fundraising Report Card works. I realized that with basic donor data, FRC synthesizes a great deal of valuable information that would make my life easier!

We did the leg work to clean and organize our donor data and develop a better process to track and collect donation info. Now that we have our data and FRC can run analytics, the information we have allows us to re-evaluate our fundraising goals while at the same time giving us insight on which donors we ought engage.

FRC is our in-house fundraising statistician. With the knowledge we have from the FRC information, we have more power to make informed decisions, to be more accountable to our goals, and prioritize segmented donors...all of which strengthens our organization.

What enables users to also benefit from the FRC's value is its staff - they are incredibly accessible to review data and ask follow-up questions. I am so grateful we have this invaluable tool at our finger tips!

Pros: Ease of use, wealth of analytics, practical application

Cons: The only drawback is the difficulty of integrating the data graphs into a report. You can take screenshots of the graphs or download them into distinct PDF files. You can also link them in a report. But it would be great if the process was seamless.

Overall: The Fundraising Report Card is a great tool for nonprofits to measure their effectiveness. It requires only three points of data, easily available to any nonprofit that tracks its donors, and once that data is uploaded, the nonprofit gets a treasure-trove of useful analytics such as donor retention and churn, donor lifetime value, average donation, typical gift amount, etc. These KPIs are important for organizations to track if they are going to improve and grow their fundraising. Here is a great, affordable tool for them to do just that!

Recommendations to other buyers: Get it if you are interested in tracking fundraising data/trends in your organization.

Pros: Quick and easy to load donation transactions---just need a donor ID, date and amount. Can load all or subsets of data. Reports clearly show trends in acquired, reactivated, retained and lapsed donors and donations by 5 giving levels using graphs and tables. Reports allow drill down into segments like 'lapsed donors who gave $500-1,000 in prior year' and export of those donor IDs for organizing campaigns and communications. Reports are excellent with options to view donors vs donations, bar vs line vs area charts, date ranges and more. And, tooltips, help buttons, articles, videos and the support desk provide terrific background for learning about and applying data-driven fundraising!

Overall: The Fundraising Report Card is a great tool! I extracted a list of donations from a clients NeonCRM database, uploaded it and was analyzing fundraising trends and opportunities within an hour. However, the Fund Raising Report Card is much more than a toolset! The reports are excellent with options to view donors vs donations, bar vs line vs area charts, date ranges and more but equally important, the help available via tooltips, help buttons and Help Center articles provides background for learning about and applying data-driven fundraising.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it! The free forever version is immediately useful and a paid version which adds reports and allows exports is available for the cost of 1-2 hours of staff time per month.
