Regardless of the size of your organization, you are probably looking for a software solution for one – if not all– of these five reasons. With the economy the way it is, now’s NOT the time to hunker down. Nonprofits need to increase activity so they can thrive during this recession“Do more with less” has always been the mantra of nonprofits, but now it’s even more than that. You need to drive results with fewer resources than you have ever had. Therefore you need to work smarter and more efficientAnd make the work you do count…Finally, you need to know what’s working, so you can replicate it and toss what doesn’t work

Your technology partner can provide the tools you need to support the activities that ensure the success of your strategies. Specifically, technology should help you both acquire and retain supporters by educating and engaging them as well as by inspiring them and stewarding them. eTapestry can offer you both of the tool sets for acquisition and cultivation. We call this cycle TrueCRM and it succeeds, in short, because it lets you treat supporters like individuals… even if you have millions of them to manage.TrueCRM™ Means:Creating online and offline experiences that build meaningful connections with constituentsMaking participation and involvement with your organization easy, fun, and compelling for supportersProviding tools that enable supporters to share stories and become deeply involved in the mission communityEnsuring every interaction you have with constituents respects their entire history with your organization and demonstrates your appreciation for their involvement
TRUE CRM: Your Internet strategy should incorporate everything from your online face (website), to your online communication (email), to your online giving (ecommerce), to the heart of your system – the database. When working with our eTapestry customers on an Internet strategy, we can happily tell them there is good news, and then there is better news. The good news is that we can take any one aspect and help them implement it. The better news is that we can make all the pieces work together in a coordinated, seamless fashion offering a True CRM (constituent relationship management) Solution.

As you can see, there are many ways to interact with those who are visiting your website. You want to be able to give your visitors something but also get something from them in return. Imagine how big your donor base would be if you had the contact information for everyone who visited your website. A simple ‘ask’ is sometimes all you need.
…built, hosted, and maintained by eTapestry plus it matches the look and feel of your website.
Once the donor completes the donation page, their gift transaction is sent to our processing partner IATS-Ticketmaster, who verifies the gift and notifies the donor. All while the transaction is tracked back to your eTapestry database.
Customer Case Study
With Personal Fundraising you take advantage of viral fundraising (one of the fastest growing and easiest ways to raise funds) by creating events/fundraisers/projects in eTapestry that generate a website where individuals who support your organization can create a team, support a cause, make a donation, etc. all by creating their own personal webpage and sending the link to family and friends.
You have an option to register teams, create a team, join a team…
Team:You can create your own text for what your events is about, even including picturesParticipant:And your participants can create their own fundraising pages.Creation of a Personal Fundraising site generates a unique URL link that your participants can sent out to their friends and family who will then go online and give a donation. The donations are automatically entered into you eTapestry database and the thermometer on the page is updated to reflect how much has been raised in relation to the goal.
Your organization, the team and/or the individual can keep up to date with their own fundraising pages to monitor the progress. In addition to events like a 5k race, some common uses of the fundraising modules are small fundraisers held by your supporters, missionary support and special campaigns.
The Cart allows you to manage your inventory within your eTapestry database and create web pages you can link to your own website for individuals to purchase your merchandise. Creating your inventory is simple and manageable within your eTapestry database.
Items purchased are collected into a checkout screen for your donor/customers review.

Surveys show one of the most common requests of fundraisers is the ability to get useful reports - easily. We provide a variety of pre-built reports – not an overwhelming number of them, but those that we know are most used by nonprofits. So lets see how they work. Say you would like to get a report of some of your top donors.
Want to learn more about your top donors? Simply conduct your search in the eTapestry database and double click on the donors name. From here you will be able to see everything about your donor, including the last time they gave, how much the gift was for, where it was allocated to, email newsletters your donor has received etc.
Part of better recordkeeping is being able to manage all the different complexities of relationships, interactions, communications, and future events. eTapestry is designed to be your central data source for all these things.Customize for your vertical eg. Mission Trips, Grateful Patients
As a fundraiser, you understand the value of relationships, and the value of knowing how donors are connected so we have created relationship links for each account in your database.
That link lets you identify – and see – who this account has a relationship with. It can be any variety of relationships you see here.
Which displays a “relationship tree” allowing you to see how your database accounts are connected to each other. If you are doing major gift fundraising, this is essential to your success.
This quote explains the exact idea behind our journal page. The journal page details every interaction I have had with an account
We have all been using Microsoft Outlook for years in our daily emails. We have simplified the communication efforts when using eTapestry with our Outlook Integration offering. This module allows you verify the account you are communicating with and the communication it is automatically added to the appropriated journal in your eTapestry database directly from Outlook.
From this page I can add new items regarding contacts with this account. In this case I see I had a lunch meeting with John and I need to schedule a follow-up. So I choose calendar item from my list…
…and it allows me to set an appointment for a follow up meeting.
My calendar events also display on my welcome page when I log in, alerting me to the activities I have scheduled.
We have talked a lot about the cultivation process and relationship management but equally important is data services. All the relationship building in the world isn’t going to get you the donations needed to be successful if you don’t have accurate data. eTapestry has teamed up with the experts of data service, Target Analytics, to offer you first class tools. 1. Donor Acquisition and Development We can help you not only keep more of your current donors, but help you find new ones and build lifelong relationships. 2. Prospect Research There are a lot of suspects in your database. How do you know which are the best prospects for you? Our prospect segmentation and wealth identification services can remove the guesswork.3. Donor Performance and Benchmarking How do your donors measure up? Whether you want to see how you’ve done so far with DonorCentrics, how you compare to the industry with the National Index, or plan for the future with our Scenario Builders, we can help you find the answers. 4. Data Enrichment Services Keeping up with your donors can be a full-time job. We’re here to help with services that cover the spectrum from updating your contact info to identifying matching gifts you might be missing.
Now that you know all about the tools that can help you succeed in your fundraising efforts we have award winning support specialist that can answer any of the questions you may have while utilizing all these tools. Not to mention for your convenience we have several ways to contact your customer support representative.
The foundation for good support however, is good training. We developed our training programs to be very different from traditional software training. Instead of force feeding you as much information as possible in a short classroom setting, we do our training online. It allows you to learn at a pace that suits you. It allows you to select the specific areas you need to focus on, and it gives you unlimited access. (review class options)
<Notes for presenter> run through promo
We have used the word “TrueCRM” a lot through out this presentation, I hope now that you have a better understanding of what CRM is and we have successful shown you how eTapestry can help provide this solution. To Recap, TrueCRM is a single solution, one that combines these components into one so you can cross-reference this information, eliminate data silos, and really start to use this information and knowledge you are gaining to better align your strategies with where you want to be in the future.It’s important to note though that this integration is not merely data flowing back and forth between your data base, website donors etc. As demonstrated, it’s what you do with the knowledge you gain and how you turn it into action that makes an impact.Let me show you an example of True CRM and how important it is to see a complete, holistic view of your supporters.
