Please forgive me that I have been interning for Special Olympics for 8 weeks and I just knew today that there’s a famous software for nonprofit organizations called Raiser’s Edge.

It states in one of their news releases that more than 13,000 nonprofits around the world  use The Raiser’s Edge for donor management and it provides everything a nonprofit needs for complete fundraising and online marketing.

The Raiser’s Edge 101:
• The Raiser’s Edge helps nonprofit tracking all the details associated with building donor relationships,  functioning online marketing including online donation and registration, email communications, and targeting fundraising campaigns.
• It strengthens relationships and facilitate communication with donors and prospects across channels—with access to extensive biographical and demographic information for any individual or organization.
• It makes recording detailed information easy for all types of gifts and pledges for both online and offline transactions.
• It makes well-informed decisions with data from easy-to-access reports, and configures dashboards to receive up-to-the minute analysis of fundraising performance of their online and offline marketing and fundraising activities.

Here’s a useful guide I found online (highly recommend): http://www.blackbaud.com/files/support/guides/re7/re7begin.pdf

My goal for my last two weeks at Special Olympics Oregon is to learn as much as I can about this software. (:
