PROS & CONS

It is easy to get started with and transition into using this software. It is equipped with search capabilities that we didn't have before and it works well with our other existing tools. Lastly, it comes with an excellent support service.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

It is quite challenging to find the donors when only little and minor information is available to you.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

It allows us to determine donor giving capacity, organize our data, and make the donor profiles accessible to all employees in need of them.

Are you a current user of this product?

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about DonorSearch is the extensive charitable giving data. This would take me forever -- if not be impossible -- to find on my own.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to search by address if the address isn't tied to a gift. I also like to see past addresses, whether places were owned or rented, and dates of verification. However, I can find some of this in free online directories. That's an extra step, but worth the savings with DonorSearch. We previously used a competitor software which gave that information -- the primary difference between the two -- and the price difference just couldn't justify it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My advice is to give DonorSearch a shot. Try a demo and compare with demos from other companies.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm finding additional "tips" about our prospects and donors so that I can conduct even more thorough research outside of DonorSearch. It's an excellent starting point! I've also found the client support is phenomenal. Any time I've had a question or requested training, I feel I've been treated specifically as a client rather than as just a number.

Excellent customer service, quality user friendly data and collaborative approach with consultants and my clients!! Love the fact that the organization is continuously improving the product!!

What do you dislike?

Have not found anything to dislike! Not a thing!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend this great product! Donor Search is the science to fundraising, providing organizations with the tools to be more efficient in identifying and cultivating donors!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The partnership with Donor Search adds significant value to the clients I serve. My clients appreciate the collaborative approach. Donor Search has the expertise fully understanding the data, bringing credibility to the table while allowing me to provide strategic guidance on best way to utilize data. It's a perfect match!

(Reviewed on 08 August 2019) "Helpful Integration and customer service for non profit"

What do you like best?

DonorSearch was easy to start up and integrate into our system. Prior to this we did not have a search capable section of our database that included this much information. Fit very nicely into our existing Salesforce. Customer service was excellent. Sarah and Ruth helped walk me through the integration of Salesforce in particular which made things very simple.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it's a little difficult to narrow down info on people when searching for them if you don't have real estate/more specific on them (especially if they have a common name and are in a big city). But this has helped with entering work emails if you have access to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I had a good experience with the customer sales team when looking for the right fit. They were helpful and having a team member sit it on the trial and run through helped as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1) We did not have a way to measure capacity before DS. A lot of our information we had saved did not account for factors that included ways to measure for this. We were counting on using past donations. But this made life easier.

2) We have definitely seen benefits in the ability to tier our database. We incorporated the DS ratings into utilizing tiers.

3) We can share profiles with the whole team now and have everyone gauge clients/funders' level of potential before they speak with them.

(Reviewed on 26 April 2019) "Excellent research profiles and screening service"

What do you like best?

DonorSearch's Integrated Search tool is very comprehensive for creating profiles from public information. It especially does a great job for confirming whether gifts belong to an individual or not. The content of the profiles can be highly customized for the specific story you want to communicate. The service also does a fantastic job of quickly screening batches of individuals and helping to prioritize those individuals for discovery work or other segmentation needs. Additionally, DonorSearch has monthly webinars and flash classes which help you use their subscription service and intelligence in just about every way necessary.

What do you dislike?

The data in the portfolios are not automatically updated on a periodic basis. We are not able to customize the rating system so that political giving is not reflected. We have to provide our users guidance for this as it is not ethical for our organization to use political giving as part of the prospect identification process.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You should take advantage of their monthly webinars on a regular basis.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly, we are using DonorSearch to gather intelligence on potential donors on a case by case basis, but also in batches at times, hence the batches for portfolios, which help identify prospects. It has identified many good prospects for our organization.

(Reviewed on 23 April 2019) "Excellent easy to use product"

What do you like best?

Donor Search tools are easy to access and there is a very short learning curve. Comprehensive data can be obtained in multiple formats to supplement your organization's data so it can be applied to every resource development question. Customer service and training is top notch: the response time is quick and DS staff are available to tailor training to the customer's needs.

What do you dislike?

I have used Donor Search tools regularly for the past four years and there is absolutely nothing to dislike.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we have been able to prioritize outreach to existing donors with the significant giving potential and are applying the screening data to efforts to engage new prospects.

(Reviewed on 26 February 2019) "DonorSearch remains the best in its class"

What do you like best?

The quality and visible growth of the product and its capabilities. DS listens to client feedback and makes constant upgrades and data additions to the system. I regularly evaluate the competitors - Wealth Engine, iWave, WealthX, etc., and DonorSearch consistently comes out on top. They are the best at figuring likelihood for philanthropy and business, rather than basic estimated wealth based on real estate. Their RFM score is so helpful. I rely heavily on their database. Client services is also EXCELLENT - you always talk to/email with a real person, and receive responses right away.

What do you dislike?

It's impossible to have ALL the data in there, but they really aim to update the database with new records on a constant basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

DS is the only platform that uses wealth AND philanthropic and political contribution data to predict giving capacity and likelihood, and always provides a score for each. Do a demo and let the product speak for itself.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

DonorSearch helps our organization uncover and qualify individual prospects for charitable contributions.

(Reviewed on 30 November 2018) "Excellent Program"

What do you like best?

I've used DonorSearch for almost four years to help different organizations run successful capital campaigns. The ability to search and find information on individuals makes it easier to formulate an accurate ask of an individual.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there is not enough information gathered on an individual but that is not the fault of DonorSearch.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Run don't walk to DonorSearch. It is the tool you need in any fundraising department or role. It is absolutely necessary to do wealth screenings on your prospects and DonorSearch gives you that freedom without any limits. Not only can you run wealth scans on individuals - receiving feedback such as home value, business value, gift history to other organizations, etc. - but you can also search for individuals who give to similar causes in a specific area, which helps to identify potential new donors.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running capital campaigns requires deeper knowledge of an organizations donor base. I used DonorSearch for two primary things: (1) Run wealth scans on an organization's already existing donor base and (2) To search for like minded donors in an organizations area or specialty. DonorSearch provided me and the organizations I worked with raise over $20 million dollars in the last four years.
