Managing donor information is a messy business for all non-profits, and choruses are no exception. Although the perfect choir management tool doesn’t yet exist, there are a number of donor databases that can help you manage this vital part of your organization:
- Arts People
- Salsa (formerly DonorPro)
- Little Green Light
- Raiser's Edge
Artful.ly, CiviCRM, and Salesforce are free (you can get up to 10 free non-profit licenses for Salesforce). Keep in mind that free (usually) means a lot more administrative work to manage.
On the high end, eTapestry, PatronManager, and Raiser's Edge are the most expensive, and are typically only found in larger organizations.
