8. Q&A
We will cover ways to
make your database
easier and more
efficient to use!
What do we
mean by
“healthy” or
“clean” data?
Clean and healthy data supports your
objectives. It is:
● Easily discoverable
● Understandable
● Of value to your organization
It consistently holds to this criteria over
time.
What is data health?
What does
unhealthy data
look like?
Examples of unhealthy data:
● Typos
● Duplicate records
● Non-standardized formats
● Missing data
● Outdated or inaccurate data
Why does
clean and
healthy data
matter?
● Effectively target constituents in
the most efficient way
● Ensure you have a single
constituent view
● Avoid compliance issues
● Increase your overall ROI
● Reduce wasted budget spending
Basics of Setting Up Your
Bloomerang Donor
Database
Settings
Click Settings > Organization
Update your organization information
-Add your website and any social media information
-Set your Fiscal Year Start Date*
-Set your NTEE Code
Set two-factor authentication for logins
-Every user should have their own login ID/Password
-You can have as many as you need!
Integrations
Click Settings > Integrations
Link your accounting software (if applicable)
Link your third-party email (if applicable)
Activate NCOA
-Partnership with TrueGivers
-Nightly updates for:
● NCOA information, including move information and address
standardization
● Deceased information wherein the constituent account status is updated
● Other demographic information that you can opt-in to
Tip: Don't see this in Bloomerang? Email
success@bloomerang.com to upgrade or purchase NCOA
processing.
User Permissions
Click Settings > Users Set permissions to protect your database
health
You can select who has access to your
database in these different areas:
● Home
● Reports
● Data Tools
● Communications
○ Emails
○ Letters
And who can edit in these areas:
● Constituents
● Reports
Add, Edit, Deactivate, and Delete Users
User Permissions
Click Settings > Users
Transaction Permissions
● These settings apply
to transaction-related
data only. This allows
you to protect
sensitive data while
still giving certain
stakeholders access to
your database.
Tip: Set up policies for data entry and train staff on a regular
basis.
A board member can record their interactions
An intern can update constituent profiles
A volunteer can enter gifts
Funds, Campaigns, and
Appeals, oh my!
Funds
(only field of the three required
in Bloomerang)
Money is going to that specific
bucket.
This is usually going to be funding
areas that span multiple years.
Examples:
● Unrestricted
● Program
● Scholarships
Funds are the big
buckets of money
Fund, Campaign, and Appeal Basics
PRO TIP: Set up your funds to
mimic your finance/accounting
system. This makes
record-keeping easier!
Campaigns
● Have a financial goal
● Have a specific date range
● Examples:
○ Annual Campaign
○ Capital Campaign
○ LARGE Events
Campaigns are specific,
overarching fundraising
efforts
Campaigns are defined by the
financial goal and date range. The
date range could span an
extended period of time
depending on the type of
campaign.
Fund, Campaign, and Appeal Basics
Appeals
Examples:
● Spring Appeal
● Major Gift Ask
● Personal Solicitation
● Event Sponsorships
Appeals are a
specific request for
funds
WHY RECORD THIS? This info
will help you see which types
of funding requests have
been most successful in the
past.

Funds,
Campaigns, and
Appeals are not
mutually
exclusive!
Typically, transactions only have one Fund, Campaign, or
Appeal associated with them.
If a donation goes toward different Funds, e.g. $500 to
Unrestricted and $500 to Programs, use Split Payments.
Why does
setting this up
correctly matter
for clean data?
It matters for:
● Fiscal responsibility
● Segmentation of data
○ Constituent communication
○ Historical data for future
decision-making
○ Running accurate reports on the
success of campaigns
Custom Fields and Groups
Segmentation
Think about what segments you will need data for and set those up now
What are some segments you use currently?
Consider:
Recency: How long have donors been giving?
Frequency: How often do donors give?
Type: How are donors giving?
Amount: How much are donors giving?
Reason: Why do donors give?
Interest: What topics are donors most interested in?
Segmentation
Think about what segments you want to have data for and set those up now
How to segment your data
● Bloomerang Groups
● Custom Fields–think now about what custom fields you may
need for segmentation
What are custom fields
● Where are they available
● Using Custom Fields as filters
Custom fields vs. Groups
● For this segment, will we need quick views of things like:
○ Demographics
○ Average transaction amount
○ Month-over-month giving
● Will we frequently reference this group as a segment in reports or communications?
When should I use each of these? Ask yourself these questions:
OR
Probably Groups
Probably Custom fields
● Will we more occasionally refer to this information for things like an annual event?
● Will we likely use this information for individual conversations with
donors/stakeholders on more of a “one-off” basis?
Duplicates
Merge
duplicates

your
constituent
records

Head duplicates off
at the pass by
checking your
import doc prior to
importing!
Use duplicate
checking tools in
Excel or Google to
ensure you are not
importing duplicates
you will have to
clean up later!

  • 9. What does unhealthy data look like? Examples of unhealthy data: ● Typos ● Duplicate records ● Non-standardized formats ● Missing data ● Outdated or inaccurate data
  • 10. Why does clean and healthy data matter? ● Effectively target constituents in the most efficient way ● Ensure you have a single constituent view ● Avoid compliance issues ● Increase your overall ROI ● Reduce wasted budget spending

  • 16. A board member can record their interactions
  • 17. An intern can update constituent profiles
  • 18. A volunteer can enter gifts
  • 20. Funds (only field of the three required in Bloomerang) Money is going to that specific bucket. This is usually going to be funding areas that span multiple years. Examples: ● Unrestricted ● Program ● Scholarships Funds are the big buckets of money Fund, Campaign, and Appeal Basics PRO TIP: Set up your funds to mimic your finance/accounting system. This makes record-keeping easier!
  • 21. Campaigns ● Have a financial goal ● Have a specific date range ● Examples: ○ Annual Campaign ○ Capital Campaign ○ LARGE Events Campaigns are specific, overarching fundraising efforts Campaigns are defined by the financial goal and date range. The date range could span an extended period of time depending on the type of campaign. Fund, Campaign, and Appeal Basics
  • 22. Appeals Examples: ● Spring Appeal ● Major Gift Ask ● Personal Solicitation ● Event Sponsorships Appeals are a specific request for funds WHY RECORD THIS? This info will help you see which types of funding requests have been most successful in the past. Fund, Campaign, and Appeal Basics

  • 26. Funds, Campaigns, and Appeals are not mutually exclusive! Typically, transactions only have one Fund, Campaign, or Appeal associated with them. If a donation goes toward different Funds, e.g. $500 to Unrestricted and $500 to Programs, use Split Payments.
  • 27. Why does setting this up correctly matter for clean data? It matters for: ● Fiscal responsibility ● Segmentation of data ○ Constituent communication ○ Historical data for future decision-making ○ Running accurate reports on the success of campaigns
  • 29. Segmentation Think about what segments you will need data for and set those up now What are some segments you use currently? Consider: Recency: How long have donors been giving? Frequency: How often do donors give? Type: How are donors giving? Amount: How much are donors giving? Reason: Why do donors give? Interest: What topics are donors most interested in?
  • 30. Segmentation Think about what segments you want to have data for and set those up now How to segment your data ● Bloomerang Groups ● Custom Fields–think now about what custom fields you may need for segmentation What are custom fields ● Where are they available ● Using Custom Fields as filters
  • 31. Custom fields vs. Groups ● For this segment, will we need quick views of things like: ○ Demographics ○ Average transaction amount ○ Month-over-month giving ● Will we frequently reference this group as a segment in reports or communications? When should I use each of these? Ask yourself these questions: OR Probably Groups Probably Custom fields ● Will we more occasionally refer to this information for things like an annual event? ● Will we likely use this information for individual conversations with donors/stakeholders on more of a “one-off” basis?
  • 34. Head duplicates off at the pass by checking your import doc prior to importing! Use duplicate checking tools in Excel or Google to ensure you are not importing duplicates you will have to clean up later!
