I love my job because I get to work with some of the coolest organizations. Donor Tools’ customers are literally changing the world right now.
It’s satisfying work, and it’s immensely gratifying when we receive praise from our customers. As a former non-profit administrator myself, I know how hard it is to raise money and conduct programs, without adding the hassle of managing software and record-keeping. In fact, one of the reasons I started Donor Tools was to remove or mitigate those hassles and frustrations of the job.
Up until a year ago, Carl Camera of Austin Samaritans knew a lot about that frustration. Carl is a founding board member of Austin Samaritans, an Austin, Texas-based non-profit organization.
Carl has written a great review of Donor Tools over on the Godbit Project.
Austin Samaritans was one of our first users, and they’ve been using Donor Tools for almost a year now. They were a huge help during our beta testing period, and they happily allowed us to experiment on them while we were testing the system.
I met Carl in 2008 at the annual Godbit get-together. Carl told me about their organization, and it sounded like Donor Tools would be a great fit for what they were doing:
Ryan spoke about a web application called Donor Tools that he was developing. I thanked God in silent prayer as Ryan described how Donor Tools allowed ubiquitous access for non-profits to maintain all their donor contact information.
They jumped right on the bandwagon, and bravely helped us test the then-unfinished Donor Tools. Their help has been wonderful, and we were able to incorporate much of the feedback they gave us during the beta period.
Donor Tools… is now our de facto strategic donor contact system.
Austin Samaritans is really a power-user. They’ve done a fantastic job of customizing Donor Tools’ tags, funds, and sources to their needs, and they’re getting great value out of the system. That makes me so happy – we’ve helped them save money, organize their donor information, and connect their organization globally and locally.
