Pros: Simple and intuitive yet comprehensive in meeting our needs. Also great customer service response.

Cons: It may be me not exploring the possibilities thoroughly, but it seems like some of the template letters I've tried to write were restricted in their length so I wasn't always able to use them to personalize large mailings. (Instead, I just did a generic newsletter and generated labels.)

Overall: As a small non-profit food pantry (we serve 37,000 clients a year and record about $200,000 to $250,00 in donations a year)and I couldn't be more pleased as a Donarius user. It fits our needs perfectly and actually has some features that we haven't even gotten around to using. Of the many programs I've used through the years - of any kind - I've never experienced better or more personal customer support. A program is only as good as the support you receive when the day comes that something goes wrong. I've had issues that were computer related, not at all a fault of the Donarius program, yet still received literally hours of support to try to work through the problems to get me back in operation. I would (and have) recommend this program to anyone that wants a simple, effective and easy to learn donations program. It has a great help section that literally takes you through every step of every function available - in language anyone can follow and understand. It is easy to get started using yet can be customized as you go to meet pretty much any situation you might encounter. Other programs have been developed since our Pantry first started using Donarius, but if I were to start over today, I would ,without a doubt, choose Donarius again. Great product at a great price - proving the old adage "you get what you pay for" totally wrong. Don't be fooled by the modest price - this is a great program backed up by great customer support. (Get it now before they wise up and jack up the price LOL.)

Pros: For years I kept track of contributions the same way as with the rest of our church finances... with Quicken. As our church grew that became less and less satisfactory and I looked for a separate program to track contributions. Mostly what I found were online services, which I wasn't interested in due to ongoing cost and requiring our money counters to have immediate and reliable access to a computer AND internet... which wasn't convenient in our situation. And the few standalone programs I found had not been updated for sometime.

Then I found Donarious. The price is quite reasonable, email queries are answered promptly, and it is fairly easy to use. It is amazing that at this price they offer not only a 1 year warranty, but offer to customize the program for your needs during that period!

It has saved me a lot of time, especially when generating receipts, which with my old system was labor intensive. Give it a try!

Cons: It has just a "name" field instead of separate fields for last name and first name. If all your donors have names like John Smith, then that is fine, but in our multi-cultural society, that causes complications. And it won't tolerate quotes in the names, so you can't get around it that way. The best solution I found, which is satisfactory, is to enter the names in LAST, FIRST format.

At least in the version I have, the pre-made receipts and some reports have a spot for a "check #", which is fine if you use that, but I don't take the time to enter it. Unfortunately, those pre-made receipts and reports then show "check #?" in each entry, which is kind of crude. No one sees the reports but me and I use custom receipts so it hasn't been an issue for me.

Overall: Nothing I looked at when I purchased this in early 2010 came close to Donarious for meeting my needs... and the price is great!

I highly recommend getting the optional module for customizing receipts. It is helpful if you have a little backround in software code or HTML writing (or have access to such a person) to create the receipt templates, but it is fairly flexible and I was able to come up with something I like. Once that is done, you don't have to revisit that issue again unless you change your mind about how you want it to look. During that first year, I believe they'll give you one free customized receipt done for you.

I tried the "relationships and families" option and didn't ultimately find it useful for our purposes. Your mileage may vary. Thus far, I haven't had any need for the other modules. I haven't used the email features yet, but I anticipate doing so in the future. Trying any or all of the optional modules is free and buying them is pretty cheap.

Pros: Pretty straightforward if you know how to use it

Cons: First entry for donation defaults to the first person in the database - can lead to errors if you don't catch it.

Bit tricky to change the format of receipt.

Overall: Donarius works well once you get the hang of it. Could be improved in some ways; in our case, it serves its purpose in issuing official tax receipts and tallying the donations. Revising the report format can be a bit tricky - trial and error to get the look you want. Printing the reports in a particular way (landscape/portrait/ etc. )can be improved as the layout seems a bit 'cluttered'. I guess the features are there, it's just that we don't have the opportunity to explore and experiment - we're fine with just printing the receipts and a general report showing the amounts and dates. Louie (the owner/programmer) is okay for customer support - he responds pretty quickly and is helpful; one time though when I phoned he was in a relative's house so couldn't assist at that time. It is still a pet peeve of mine that whenever I key in a donation, it defaults to the first name in the database, so if I miss that portion, the donation will be credited to the wrong person. I prefer that the first entry is just 'blank'' so user is 'forced' to key in the correct donor code. Other improvements can be a report that shows more color, graphs, multiple 'types' of donations tallied in one page, etc. (which I do in Excel for presentation to Board and management). Overall, for the amount we paid one time, and compared with other software I researched with a monthly fee, for our purposes, Donarius is great!

Pros: It is clear to read on the screen. Entering and tracking Pledges is simple and the quarterly reports etc. reflect amounts donated and are easy to follow for the donor.

Cons: The comment on the quarterly report that says "To fulfill your pledge, please give......"

Overall: Getting started with Donarius was a bit challenging at first, mainly because I was not, at the time, computer literate. The program was very easy to learn with my limited skills and the support, when needed, was excellent and easy to follow. After having used a manual program for tracking donations, Donarius was a dream. Entering information for each donor and the categories available made for great ease. Providing weekly reports to the treasurer in printed form and in the many choices of format available was done with ease. I am particularly happy with being able to send a Tax Receipt by e-mail. It is a perfect method and a great money saving feature of the program. The workload for myself will increase shortly with the addition of two more Churches in the Parish to look after. Not only that, but our Church is partnered with a coalition called Nelson Friends of Refugees and we will issue tax receipts for donations made to the coalition, which, incidentally, is not registered as a charity and therefore unable to issue the Tax Receipts. I anticipate the increased workload to be handled with ease, thanks to the wonderful Donarius software. Any possible problems which might occur I am most confident in Louie helping me solve them.

In conclusion, the program is well designed and entering information wherever required was very simple. The Help portion for all operations which might be required I found invaluable. I figured if a person could read he could do the program.

Recommendations to other buyers: re. the above quarterly statement, something a little less demanding maybe?

Pros: easy to get started

excellent at receipting

excellent customer service

very affordable

Cons: formatting codes - I have been able to get what I need but probably would customize more if I didn't have to wrestle with these. However, I do understand that for the price, we probably shouldn't expect WYSIWYG

inactive donors - standard definition doesn't work for us

Overall: I have used Donarius for 7 years. It is simple but does all a small charity like ours needs. Reports, letters, receipts, etc. require formatting codes, like the old days with word processors. But examples are provided and with a little effort, I have been able to get what I need. The basics of donor and donation entry are straightforward. It makes receipting very easy - it does a great job of keeping all that straight. Able to use Canadian postal codes and Canadian receipting requirements. Customer service is unbeatable - usually, there is a personal response to an email within the hour. The price means that every charity no matter how small can have a dedicated donor database with receipting capabilities. No more spreadsheets. Like any relational database, it has its complexities if you want to use its full abilities. But it is easy to get started and really, for the price, you have nothing to lose by trying it. Highly recommended.

Recommendations to other buyers: just try it

Pros: Compact with a low learning curve, but still extremely effective.

Cons: Can't really think of a "negative".

Overall: Our non-profit Church group has been using Donarius, now, for a number of years. After having looked at and tried a few other commercial programs; Intuit products, for instance, I found Donarius via a Google search, and tried the Trial Version.

After using that, and becoming familiar with its various modules and capabilities, we settled on those modules that best suited our group and purpose, and have never regretted it.

The ability to create Tax Receipt Documents (with the included utility) that are specific to our money handling procedures, has been very helpful.

Of exceptional value to us, has also been their stellar Customer Service Staff! Every question I've had about the program and it's operation, or upgrading, or integrating with a new OS, or even recovering files after a system crash, has been answered promptly and fully, always enabling me to move ahead regardless of the specific circumstance being asked about.

I would very highly recommend Donarius, to any group looking for a record keeping/tracking program with ample reporting capabilities, and one that is very reasonably priced to boot.

Their updating and upgrading procedures and pricing are also very commendable given the over-all quality of the program.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it, you'll like it!

Pros: Ease of use. Very user friendly. Most operations are simple logic with no unnecessary steps. Good customer support. We are a small church and I don't have an accounting background, so I need something simple. Once I learned the program, I have very few questions about its operation for our use.

Cons: There's nothing I don't like.

Overall: Our church was using another program and even its "small church" version required extensive customer support, which was expensive ($250 for six months). A friend told me about Donarius and I am so glad we switched because the program is very easy to use and if I get stuck on something I've never done, I just call support and Louie is very available. Even if I should need a callback, it usually comes very quickly. Louie is very patient with my questions, and not having an accounting background, I have many questions. I like the backup feature. I have the reassurance of knowing that my data is backed up on my standalone hard drive. And if my weekly giving figures in Donarius don't match my bank deposit, it's really easy to run a total showing givers and amounts so I can spot the discrepancy right away. And the cost for the program is a fraction of what we were paying for the old program.

Recommendations to other buyers: I wouldn't know how to suggest any improvements.

Great package for my small church.

Pros: Ease of use, functionality and price.

Cons: The attributes box for the donor information is a little crowded.

Overall: I am the Financial Secretary for our church. I have used Donarius since 2008 to track donor contributions and print tax statements. We have around 50 "Giving Units" per year that we track. For a small church like ours Donarius is perfect. It is extremely easy to use but does possess those "bells and whistles" features.

Data entry for a given Sunday takes less than five minutes with the source items (checks, etc.) in alphabetic order. The "Reports" function creates the daily or monthly summary reports for documentation/balancing/end of month spreadsheets.

I use the Backup function every week after the data entry and have actually had to use it to recover after a hard drive failure. It was very easy.

I have occasionally had to ask a usage question and always get a timely response from their support staff.

Our previous software company folded and I looked at a number of different products for a replacement. As a computer programmer myself I really liked the combination of functionality, ease of use and price that Donarius delivers.

I highly recommend this product.

Recommendations to other buyers: I am a huge fan of this software because it is so easy to use. Data entry is a breeze and the Reports module has all of the functionality I ever need.

Pros: It is very simple to use. It takes very little disk space, is easy to back up, and the data is encrypted. It recognizes which week it is, and makes weekly entry easy.

Cons: Sometimes, it is a little difficult to change an individual entry from the past. It is not intuitive how to go directly to one giver, and I have to go through the whole list to get the right person. With the code for the person, it is easier, but I sometimes have trouble with that.

Overall: The software is easy to use and the user interface is quite intuitive most of the time. There are a few items that seem hard to find, like specific reports. From the support experience in the past, I am sure there are ways to get the info, but I am not inclined to ask for help. We have been very happy with this program and would highly recommend it. When I did ask for support, the answer came quickly, and was very personal. Good job.

Recommendations to other buyers: We are very happy, but some reporting could be a little easier - like bringing up a year's worth of giving for an individual doner. Over all, I really like the software.

Pros: It does a lot. Will increase your productivity. Great customer support. Very cheap.

Cons: No way to keep track of attendance. Not web-based (using it through dropbox will sometimes but rarely result in sychronisation issues when used by multiple users).

Overall: This software does a lot of things and will eliminate many tasks that churches do twice (sometimes without even being aware). There's a little bit of a learning curve, but you will be impressed by everthing the software does for you. Be sure to use this to count your offering, and then it will do so much more. The customer support is great. I would recommend this software.

The only downsides : no way to keep track of attendance. Also, this software would work better if it were web-based especially when used by multiple users in different locations. To deal with this problem, the software can be used through Dropbox (or other such applications), but we have found this type of solution will sometimes (but rarely) result in synchronisation issues (creating files in conflit).

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it to count your offering as well. You will save some time and you will save the pain of comparing dual reporting which can sometimes be conflicting.

Pros: I love that it is easy to use, it meets the needs of all my 3 sites in one file and that I can confidently print giving receipts which meet the requirements set out by the government.

Cons: I would like to be able to mark a donor as inactive, that would help. I would also like to be able to mark a specific donor as giving to a specific site, and then be able to over ride the site if necessary to another location.

Overall: We actually tried other methods of tracking our donations but we found Donarius to be the one that meets our needs, as a multi-sited church, and meets the needs of our federal reporting responsibility (Canadian). The help is AMAZING and I have been pleased with the immediate results we get from Donarius support. We came back to Donarius because it is easy to use. One thing I wish I could do is mark inactive donors as inactive. It would help out in the case where people have moved or deceased. I would recommend Donarius to any organization needing to keep track of donations.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a quality time tested product.

Pros: Ease of learning and use.

Cons: Just that it requires F8 "multiple donation" separate entries for multiple checks or a combination of cash and checks. Our old software had boxes for filling several checks and cash all on the same screen, and that was much easier.

Overall: We were looking for a new software to replace an old, outdated, no longer supported program. After looking at several, we found most of them overpriced, and all seemed too cumbersome and difficult for our senior citizen, not too computer savvy, money counters. Then we found Donarius. We at first felt that at such a low price, there was no way it would fit our needs. Much to our surprise, it was by far the easiest to use of any that we tried, and its simplicity suited us perfectly. We don't need comprehensive functions, just keeping track of the donations and tax statements, and it is perfect for our needs. When we experienced a problem about a function we needed that was not there, the company actually made a revision, just for us. Another question resulted in a simple procedural change on our part to solve it after the company pointed out a function that we didn't know existed. I truly believe that this is the best software for the price to be found anywhere. We are finishing up our second year of using it, and we are 100% satisfied.

Pros: The ease of the interface

Cons: That I can not back tab between the congregants names...I can forward tab but not backwards.

Overall: I have little to no education in doing books but when I took this position everything was handwritten but now with the computer age I needed to find a simple program that was easy enough for me to use. The interface is very easy and there are never any problems entering the information into the program to create your congregation and their offering envelope information. Every week when I go to enter the information the program tabulates everything for me so it is extremely easy for me to create instant reports and to double check the figures that the official counters have done. It is usually very easy for me to find any discrepancies. It is also easy to change any kind of information that is in the system. I can create weekly reports that help me balance, quarterly reports so I can let the treasurer know where we stand and then print receipts quarterly for the congregation as well as their year end receipts...and they are all customizable!

I love the fact that I can use it and explain it to others to use in my absence. It is an easy to use software with no frills. For the church I work for it meets our needs and is compatible to our other programs, and fits in our budget.

Pros: Easy to use and excellent support

Cons: No problems to report

Overall: The tellers use Donarius to enter all monies on the collection plants including Not Receipted items like rental income and loose offerings, Using a DropBox the envelope secretary and me (Treasurer) see the details and can easily correct any errors. This saves time and provides some protection for the envelope secretary as I keep a copy of what the tellers entered in case of a dispute with the donor. We have instant communication on Sunday. The tellers use a simple excel spread sheet for the bank deposit and that saves time. Prior to using Donarius the tellers used a hand written form and had trouble balancing as office skills like adding long columns of numbers even with a calculator are skills that are seldom used. The tellers now can handle about 60 envelopes in less than one hour about half the time they used to take. I run a year to date summary to balance by category with the financial statements I issue and report to CRA.

Recommendations to other buyers: Other software we looked at could not handle not receipted money

Pros: Donor tracking capability. Donation totals and reporting for tax reporting.

Cons: Interface is old-fashioned. Does not provide integration with other client-management software.

Overall: The Art Gallery of Northumberland purchased Donarius to provide better and prompter service to the Gallery's donors and members.

The product is easy to install. It was straightforward to customize the product to use the Gallery's name and logo on printed materials.

Reporting on the overall membership was at times problematic, in part because the person doing the reporting was not that familiar with the reporting capability.

The one time we had a problem with the software - it seemed to be reverting to a previous logo on occasion - we got very quick and helpful support that had the problem corrected in minutes.

The interface is outdated - it is not point-and-click graphics, but instead looks line an old-fashioned "line command" interface.

All things considered, it provides good value for the money.

Pros: I like the customer support. And I like that it is a basic program that does its job without having a bunch of extra features that get in the way.

Cons: I don't like having to back up files one at a time .... I would like to put my backup drive into my backup computer and have it backup all the files at once.

Overall: Donarius does the job of recording our donations, with the option of making more than one account to donate to; it is easy to use, and the help files are easy to understand; it doesn't have a lot of fancy extra features that just get in the way and confuse me; it was easy for me to figure out printing tax receipts, without needing help. Tech support / customer support is phenomenal!! This is the best tech support I have ever received for any software. I am not using the program to its fullest potential yet, but looking forward to expanding my knowledge of it, and putting it to greater use.

Pros: It does exactly what it says it will do, for a very reasonable price.

Cons: I wish we could figure out how to change the programming for thank you letters so it would show what program (ministry) the donation was applied to.

Overall: Customer service is outstanding. It is not easy to learn as it does not resemble the usual software we use, so it took a little time to adapt to it. Once we learned our way around, the various function keys, the tabs - it is great.

Recommendations to other buyers: The capterra thing is really ANNOYING. Ads pop up and block the survey. Also I am clicking on the scale of 1 to 10 and it won't respond. IT wouldn't let me submit saying "there's already a review on this email" - so I must have shot it in already. So I am using my wife's email as she actually uses donarius more than me. We have recommended this to several other non profits who come to us for help.

Pros: An accurate way to record finances!

Only pay for modules used.

Overall: The people - always courteous and helpful (I can almost see their smile).

My comments are for the offering and receipting modules only! (in no particular order)

1) It complies very well with Revenue Canada's current requirements.

2) The advice popups are helpful to do it right the first time.

3) Unreceiptable giving can be recorded as well, so the total given matches the cheque total.

4) The deposit information format makes it easy to copy onto the bank deposit slip.

5) The arithmetic is always done correctly.

6) The directory option is great too.

7) A variety of analysis of giving is helpful in planning.

8) Any problems I have with Donarius is not the software's fault - it's ME!.

9) A simple procedure for replacing lost receipts.

10) Receipt summary handy for reference and for filling out T3010.

Works well for me (us)

Pros: Easy to use, even though I am not very tech minded.

Cons: Sometimes it's a difficult to enter foreign addresses. Some fields are not used in foreign addresses, but the fields require something to be input.

Overall: Our ministry has used Donarius for years, it helps make our accounting and handling partner giving so easy. It's really easy to use and it's a real blessing.

Pros: Ease of use and speed

Cons: Reporting functions need some additions

Overall: We have been using Donarius for about five years now, and have not had any issues with it at all. It is fast and easy to input the donations, and the setup is fantastically easy. We need to do some housekeeping on our installation (cleaning out old categories and deleting obsolete donors and such), but other than that, it just plugs right along, week to week, running without a hitch. The backup function is effortless, and the export function works much better than some of the high-end accounting programs do. As always, there is room for improvement, such as more and varied types of reports, but that is a given with any accounting package. Overall, we have been exceptionally pleased with Donarius and hope to continue to use it for years to come.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great Buy! Get it!

Pros: I find, as one not too much into computors, that the ease of use is the highlight of this programme. Any additions or subtractions of members are very straight forward. Year end statements and receipts are quite easy to produce. Cost of programme very reasonable and always get a quick response if I have any questions.

Cons: When entering new members they are stored in the order you enter them and not in envelope number sequence. You don't do this too often so not a big problem. Also although you can print out labels of members you can't print a full sheet of labels with church name and address.

Overall: ease of use and support

Pros: It is simple. Its goal appears simple in tracking donations and recording families.

Cons: Although I have not attempted it yet I glanced at setting up form letters and it does not appear straight forward. I suspect it will just take a little practice.

Overall: As Financial Secretary for out small church I was looking an inexpensive, stand alone software package to track donations, provide tax receipts, and just maybe provide member tracking. We began using Donarius the beginning of this calendar year after evaluating several programs. We are a very small church and could not afford nor do we need a complex online program. Donarius does exactly what I was looking for.

As the primary user I have found it easy to learn and use and after I have completed a complete year of use with end of year tax receipts I plan to recommend it to other small churches in our United Methodist Conference. At this point I do not foresee any problems with it and highly recommend it but am waiting just so I am fully knowledgeable of all facets of the program should any other questions arise by churches in the Conference. Praise the Lord!

Pros: - Very easy to use.

- Cost savings for small organizations.

- Excellent support for questions.

Cons: No cons - we have been using this software exclusively for a number of years and have never had any problems.

Overall: We have been using Donarius for ~9 years for our small (under 25 people) church. It does everything that we need for keeping track of giving, and, specifically, generating tax receipts! It is simple and easy to use. If you have any questions or notice any problems, the support team is extremely responsive and willing to help. I especially appreciate that they offer lower cost options for small organizations. I can imagine that it would work very well on a larger scale and for larger organizations, too.

Comments: In the fall of 2015 I was looking to replace my contribution software because I could not import electronic contributions. I had no other issues with the old software. Based on prior experience, I had a very specific set of criteria the new software had to meet in terms of entering data, the ability to import electronic contributions, receipt print out, and price. Donarius met most of the criteria.

After downloading a trial version of the software, I could not make the check reader work. Mr. Cordovado and I traded a number of emails in helping me get the check reader formatted properly even though I was using a trial version of the software. Additionally, he made himself available to answer other questions I had.

After purchasing the program, he added some additional reports to meet my needs. Most software vendors tell you to take what they have.

When I ran into a problem trying to record donations when a donor gave three checks in a day causing the program issues, the issue was quickly resolved.

Donarius software has met all my needs and the support provided has exceeded my expectations. Although switching software brings some trials and tribulations going through the learning curve, I do not regret switching. Based on my experience to date, I would not swich back to my old software under any circumstances. Donarius is so much better. I would recommend it without reservation.

I'm Happy!

Comments: I am a church secretary and when the former treasurers decided it was time to lay their job down, they talked to me about taking on this job of counting the money and at that point, there was no computer used. It was all done by hand. I was having a hard time figuring out how I was going to have time for all that. Then someone introduced me to Donarius and how to use it, etc. and it seemed like it was very user-friendly. I purchased it and started using it. The guys in the Donarius office have helped me whenever I have a problem. I really appreciate them. Since then, I have told another church about Donarius and they have started using it also. I really appreciate every aspect of this software and the help that comes with it if you need it.

Pros: I found this software intuitive enough that our volunteer book keeper was able to use it on a regular basis without issue. Produced Tax receipts and tracked miscellaneous donations as well as regular ones. Our accountant was pleased that he only had to review at the end of the year - it took the burden off him on a weekly basis. The tax receipts was huge - saved us from manually creating all of them.

Cons: The software itself had an older look and feel and I felt it could have been updated more frequently.

Overall: Great software for smaller congregations looking for a cost effective solution to their donation management.

Great software for our small church, makes my life as treasurer a lot easier.

Pros: Easy to use. Easy to install. Produces tax receipts at the end of the year. The software also produces a number of "built in reports" that allows me to produce various reports for the board. I believe that Donarius saves me a ton of time over the course of the fiscal year. Your data is easily backed up to a USB stick which i would highly recommend.

Cons: Only small issue is I am a MAC user and its not available for MAC unless you load Windows on your MAC, which I don't wish to do. I purchased a Windows laptop to run the software.

Pros: Our organization needed a simple program to record and report weekly church offerings. A big "pro" is that Donarius is exactly what we were looking for- easy to use, easy to customize to fit our exact needs and the price is right. Simply stated, "it works." The program is very stable and there are never any lockups or loss of data, as we experienced with other similar but more expensive programs. The biggest "pro," however, is the superb technical support. Every issue is addressed and every question gets answered until you, the customer, are satisfied. The program has been updated free-of-charge several times, each time to correct minor issues that users found.

Cons: I can't think of anything to put here.

Overall: Donarius is a simple to use, well-thought-out and masterfully designed piece of software. It was designed for regular people. You don't have to be a programmer to understand it and get it to do everything you need. Everyone in our organization loves it because it could be customized to fit our exact needs. It is such an improvement over the "big name" Church Management software that used to clutter up our offering computer and send us home every week with a headache. It's free to try- so try it. You'll know soon enough if Donarius is what you are looking for.

We purchased a program called "Church Pro" but it was very difficult to work with. To many features and a bit confusing not to mention the cost was not cheap at all. I still have it sitting on my computer with no activity. Donarius has always been my best choice.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the great work.

Pros: It is very easy to use, I am not a computer techie so the program needs to be user friendly. I am able to provide all the information required for our yearly audits.

Cons: There are some reports I would like to be able to have however as I already stated, possibly the information could be obtained if we updated our program.

Overall: I have been using donarius for a number of years and it certainly serves our purpose. There are a few reports I would like to be able to print however we have not updated our program for a number of years so they could be available already.

Pros: Ease of use and time-saving. Also, great response from customer support if I have a question or problem. Online help is also quite detailed.

Cons: I miss some of the flexibility I had using Excel and Word in being able to make exceptions to rules during data entry and in reporting. Also, I find it frustrating that categories for donations aren't always in the same order on entry screens.

Overall: I did my job as Financial Secretary for 10 years using spreadsheets. Finally said I wouldn't do the job anymore unless the church found a way to ease my load. Donarius was the answer to their prayers and mine. Life is much easier now. The software is easy to use, and customer support has been great with their responsiveness to questions and problems.

Pros: Producing tax receipts was easy

Cons: Some editing capabilities could be easier

Overall: Our church started to use Donarius a few years ago to produce tax receipts. We found that the software enabled us to do so with ease, and also in record time. In past years, the task of producing tax receipts had been quite cumbersome, hence, this was a welcome change. When we had questions about the software, our experience with customer support was second to none! They went beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a solution. Furthermore, they followed up to ensure everything was fine. I highly recommend this software to every church or non-profit looking for a good software to generate tax receipts.

Any issue I've encountered was answered quickly and efficiently.

Pros: Easy to use. Interfaces with Vanco Solutions (our online donation system). Customer service is excellent!

Cons: Occasionally, while entering donations, the 'sync' is interrupted. After entering a donation, the software usually goes to the donor number/envelope number ready for the next search; however, sometimes it stays in the amount recording field after hitting enter causing an error in the donation amount.

Overall: Time savings. Used to use NCR recording by hand. Now, I can run totals quickly for reports.

On the 'Add/Edit Donors' window you can search by part of the name. Each time you click on the 'Find Next' button it will find the next person that matches. Keep on clicking until you get to the person you are looking for.

I have yet to test the envelope add on.

Pros: Very easy to use, and thus easy to teach to new volunteers. The tax receipt functionality is straight forward, and the donor options are comprehensive.

Cons: Limited report options. For example, I added PayPal as a payment type; I'd like to print a report that just details PayPal for the time period that I select (I can sort of get that through the Bank Deposit report, but with limited detail).

Overall: I have been using Donarius for several years; it is very easy to use, and more than meets all of our needs. The recent upgrade makes the software even better. I give it 5 out 5 across the board, except in features, where I wouldn't mind a bit more comprehensive reporting - but it's still excellent. Their customer service is fast & friendly as well. I highly recommend Donarius!

Cons: Nothing to mention.

Overall: I have been using this program for our church for over ten years. I find it easy to use and it includes everything. I have trained my assistant in its use and she is doing great on her own.

The best thing about the program is that it stands alone and is not included in membership management records. This gives us the privacy of keeping it on a separate church computer from the one everyone else uses.

Overall: We are currently a small congregation but this software has greatly simplified our donation record keeping. It has many features that we do not currently need, but will likely be more valuable as we grow. I especially like the ease in generating quarterly donation summaries and annual tax receipts for members.

Customer support has been very responsive and most questions can be answered within the help menu.

My only criticism is that it would be helpful if the software were more intuitive. This is my first experience as a church financial secretary and I found the initial learning curve to be a bit challenging.

Overall: We are a small parish, with appropriately 200 families, and we have limited funds to spend on donation accounting software and absolutely no time to spend " learning" how to use the software, as we have only a part time office manager employee. Donarius is flexible enough to meet our needs in recording donations into different ministries accounts and for printing out end of the years individual reports for our parishioners. The few times I needed assistance I called the service number and the IT guy talked me through my computer software problem. Donarius is 5 stars for any small Parish or church.

Donarius is easy to use, and covers the basic needs of our church. However, it is very limited.

Pros: User-friendy - the software is easy to understand and easy to use for basic bookkeeping functions. It is also easy to process annual tax receipts.

Cons: The software is very limited. If you're looking for basic functions, it operates well, but when looking for more-detailed accounting of church finances, it is not possible.

Overall: easy to track weekly church donations and easy to generate annual tax receipts

It was easy to up-grade by a substantial amount

Pros: The categories make sense.

Nice that the reports can be exported to other programs.

Clear text; much easier to read than the previous update.

Cons: One is still limited as to how many separate categories can be assigned to one church account. In my experience, donors like to see their wishes honoured in a clear manner.

Overall: Keeps track of donations and helps me track projected givings in future years.

Overall: For the past three years I have been utilizing the program for our church's contributions. It was an economical choice for our small, but active church. The only drawback is that I have no programming background or have anyone who can help if I need to change templates. Customer service has been very helpful with this issue and other questions I have had. Great product for the price.

We are using Donarius for over 10 years now. This is an excellent product.

Pros: We didn't have to pay for functionality we didn't want or need,

Easy to learn and use,

Prompt support.

Cons: It sometimes takes two or thee attempts to generate a report that show exactly what I want.

Figuring out whether i need to use Export of Save to Text to get what i want.

Overall: We have been using Donarius since 2002 and have found it to be an excellent way of keeping track of donations and of generating donation receipts. Another plus is that we only pay for the functionality that we need, i.e. less than 100 active donors, gifts in kind, custom tax-receipts and pre-authorized deposits. And we know we can add other functions, for instance pledges, very easily should we need them.

When we have needed support it has been right there, usually within 24hours.

I have tried other, more expensive, donation software and was far less satisfied than I am with Donarius.

It has been a very helpful software to use

Comments: While I am no longer a church treasurer this program was really great to work with. I loved how when you wanted a tithing report, you got what you needed immediately. I recommended your program to a tax accountant who worked with church accounts and didn't like what they had been using. I told her to check your program out. The next time I saw her she told me that she liked it so much she had purchased it for all the churches they kept books for.

Thank you Donarius!!

Customer Support

Pros: -Easy to set up and use, although I am very computer literate

-Haven't had any issue finding a way to track all of the church's donations

-Reports are easy to run

-Good customer service

Cons: -I think that someone who is unfamiliar with computers may have a difficult time with finding a way to track income that comes in sporadically AND is not part of the tax records (such as dividends that we get from stock shares)

-I may have to pay to upgrade after my laptop failed and the warranty had ended

-If the same donor gives more than one donation in one week, you have to add the total together instead of having it track each separate donation

Overall: We have a small congregation of less than 150 "regular givers" and use the software has adequately met our needs. If you have a large number of categories in which you want to place funds, it may get cumbersome.

Comments: I have been using Donarius for six years and it has worked well for my needs. Had been looking for a simple product that just helped get out of the manual "one-write" system, was inexpensive and would generate the detailed IRS letters needed at year end for reach donation received. For our small church of under 100 donors, Nuverb had a scaled down price that was very reasonable. Tried the demo and then paid the fee. I enter all funds received into the program and it provides a report I use for an annual collector's report for church records to match with our Treasurer's report. That is in addition to the donor/pledger reporting. It was pretty easy to set up accounts and donor information. It is not integrated with any other system at our church, is their very basic product, I have kept it simple, and it has worked each year without any issues. When I got a new laptop they helped me reload the software on my new computer, and have always been responsive to any questions I had. It has more capability than what I need ... so, I have kept it simple.

Cons: I cannot export results to files such as Microsoft Word or PDF.

Overall: As treasurer for a choir that receives donations, I use Donarius to track donors and to prepare tax receipts. Donarius has saved me so much time that I don't know how I ever got along without it. Although I don't need all the features of Donarius, the ones that I do use (tracking and tax receipts) have been very good in terms of usability and effectiveness. In my ratings for "ease of Use" and "Features & Functionality" I took away one star each because I find exporting results to files could be improved, e.g. not possible to export to a Microsoft Word document.

Pros: The price point is excellent. The time savings from not having to re-enter recurring data each month.

Cons: Reports - see my comments.

Overall: When I am entering donations, sometimes it's difficult to figure out if I'm editing a donation I had already entered or recording a new one. This usually happens when I have 2 cheques for the same donor, or when two donors have the same last name. I keep watching the Total and Grand Total to figure out what's happening. It was nice to discover that I can batch deposits that occur every month on the 1st and 15th without having to re-enter them each time. That is a time saver. It would be nice if the donation categories had an account number to correspond to the accounting G/L and a description and; if I could edit the reports inside the program a little more. For now, I move them to Excel and change them to what I need. When I have questions, I always get a quick response! I am looking forward to printing my year-end receipts as this is my first year using the program.

Recommendations to other buyers: I indicated I use the product monthly, but it's usually quarterly and sometimes longer by the time the Director sends me the paperwork.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: could use a few more in front of your face features

Overall: We have been using this program for a few years. It works great. Would like to see a feature that allows you to view a list of donors on the side instead of having to search for them before entering if you don't have their number.

Donarius 3.44 Review

Pros: I have used Donarius to record church offerings for four years and have found it to be an invaluable tool. Set-up and entry are simple. There are many reports available for preparing financials, tracking pledges and issuing reports. I am especially looking forward to the newest version that will allow me to email reports to donors. Customer service is wonderful, and I have never had a problem with the software. The discount offered to smaller congregations is also a welcomed and appreciated feature.

Cons: The only con in 3.44 was the lack of a calendar to simplify entry of the date of the donation. That has been added in the latest version.

Overall: This is the only software for tracking donations that I have used; however, it has everything I need and the price is right for our small congregation. Use it with confidence.

Great program!

Pros: I like the ease of use and the clear instructions regarding the production of reports, lists, tax receipts, etc. The individual boxes are easy to find and to fill out when entering data.

Cons: The inability to go to a specific envelope number or donor number without scrolling through the entire data bank. The window that shows previous donations is rather annoying and, in my view, not necessary

Overall: Donarius is used strictly for recording contributions and producing tax receipts. Personal information on the congregation is kept on a separate data base. For what it is used for, the program is very good.
