Meet Your Fundraising Goal

Don't leave potential donations on the table! As you get your campaign on a roll, think about ways you'll be able to fill your fundraising gaps.

One idea is to dig into your database for donors who haven't yet given this year but gave in the past. To get a list of lapsed donors, use the "Pattern" tab in a data mining operation.

After obtaining the list, you can review the accounts for ways to communicate with them. Maybe you have a home contact you can get in touch with, a related person whom you can call, a staff member who knows them, or someone may remember them from an event they volunteered at or attended. You might even be able to find more info by searching for them on Google!

How Will You Manage the Upcoming Campaign Season?

Andar Software can provide database management services to help you use your existing software to its full potential.

Get help from us with routine Andar/360 procedures such as performing rollovers, running rebuilds, administering scheduled jobs, and performing database cleanup. You can get assistance with Database 2, custom report building, and integrating Andar/360 into other systems. Plus, you can even receive processing support as needed or on a full-time basis.
