Walk-a-thon fundraising software can be simple and easy and most importantly leverage your team’s time. Small and medium-sized non-profits fight even greater challenges than their larger colleagues. Tighter budgets, less staff, yet very important missions and ever disappearing time. With those added challenges, every minute saved for your walk becomes even more valuable to each team member. We kept those challenges, and more, in mind when we build SWEET!. We collaborated specifically with small and medium walk-a-thon fundraising staff to mold our software.
Walk-a-thon fundraising software challenges
Today, the ‘sizzle’ of sites is undeniably inviting. But in some cases can be at the expense of the functionality.
- Why should it take five clicks when we could use just two?
- Should I really need to write an email just to change an image?
- Why can’t these two databases speak to one another?
Additionally, just imagine volunteers going through that frustration. They are the lifeblood of the walk, but with limited time can be tough to wrangle, pre-occupied, or engaging with your team for the first time! Eeek.
When evaluating, it is important to remember, no system “does it all!” Do what you can to prioritize where the majority of time seems to be frustrating and what tools or features could empower your team’s effectiveness in building relationships and offering the most memorable experience.
Features & Pricing
Some features or tools that may be worth considering: automated email marketing, referral encouragement systems, easily downloadable reports, matching gift tools, pledge systems, and more. However, ‘more features’ aren’t necessarily better, it is the pursuit of the ‘right feature set’ for your organization.
Fundraising software can be simple. It can be easy to use and can save you time. With Blue Sky, it can also be priced to fit.
