The Raiser's Edge: Why does one person like it and the next hate it?
My views on the database market for charities and NFPs: packages, CRM and bespoke developments. In particular, but not limited to, fundraising and membership. I have recently been talking to several charities who use The Raiser's Edge. And it seems to me that whenever you gather together a group of fundraisers, throw in a few charity DBAs (and a pinch of technology consultants), and start talking about The Raiser's Edge, then, almost inevitably, some of the group will sing its praises and others will slate it and tell you it’s rubbish. But why? It’s the same software being used at the different charities ... market research, surveys and trends

What is the best, AFFORDABLE fundraising/donor management software ...
The question depends in part on what you intend to do with it. The software is as good as the data you put into it and the actions you take based on what you see in the data. I should add that what is important depends a bit on what kind of non-profit work your organization does. You might place a lot of value on knowing donors' birthdays so that you can send notes. Others might put great value on estimating donor's giving capacity. Another dimension to consider is how "real time" you want to be. If you're in the software daily, you'll have one set of needs.
