This was our first of two months at Easter Seals Western Pennsylvania in the Strip District. We used their lovely (albeit rather large!) board room for our meeting.
Our discussion centered around online donation tools and fundraising software. We found that the two frequently cross each other and might be had as a complete package. Here are some resources from the meeting and a few I’ve found since then:
- Online software donation comparison matrix by Affinity Resources.
- Comparison chart from the Grassroots Fundraising Journal.
- “Four Principles of Choosing Donor Management Software” article on Idealware.org.
In addition we discussed the impact of the upcoming G20 Summit (not a tech topic, but on everyone’s minds nonetheless). Randy Strothman has created a a semi-permanent page on his company’s blog on which he will post relevant Summit updates as they are made available. (Love the page title, Randy! lol!)
Our next meeting will be held at the same location, Easter Seals Western Pennsylvania, on September 2. Please note that we are meeting from 8:30 – 10 am starting this month.
