Salsa CRM vs. DonorPerfect

Salsa is a more powerful, integrated DonorPerfect alternative.
Here’s why you should consider switching from DonorPerfect software.

1) Fully-Integrated Salsa CRM and Salsa Engage

DonorPerfect is a solid CRM, but Salsa is so much more. Not only is Salsa a best of breed CRM, but we marry our rich constituent relationship management with the latest online supporter engagement and marketing automation tools.

We help you maximize the lifetime value of every supporter by driving up donor engagement and retention.

With Salsa, your organization get’s a single sign-on integration between Salsa CRM and Salsa Engage, giving you all the tools you need for successful online and offline fundraising. That means you’ll engage, cultivate, and fundraise all in one place, with one login, one support team, and one knowledgebase.

With DonorPerfect software, you need to use third party vendors like Constant Contact for your email marketing. Not with Salsa. Email marketing is built in. So don't complicate your life with lots of vendors. Salsa is THE all-in-one solution.

2) Scalable

If you’re looking for more than just donor management and marketing automation, and need a scalable solution that offers online fundraising, online advocacy, event registration, or peer to peer fundraising, your choice is obvious. With Salsa, all you have to do is flip the switch to activate additional modules.

Executing online advocacy or peer to peer campaigns with another system or vendor just doesn’t any sense. Track all your constituents in the same database of record and you’ll be able to target with the right message, at the right time, online or offline.

I’ve used a variety of fundraising software platforms over my 20-year career including DonorPerfect. It is expensive, not user-friendly, report writing is difficult and their customer support is non-existent.  The nonprofit I worked for that was using it was having issues with it, and I thought it might have been a training issue, but after diving into writing reports and running them myself, I determined that it is the product.  Some examples:  when I would run basic queries for the organization’s annual report (gift range over a period of time, eliminating certain categories of donors), the system would shut down in the middle of the query.  Other times, it would give results that weren’t accurate, which after sampling the data, there was no reason why it would have pulled certain records into the report.  In other words, the issues we were having weren’t data errors either.

3) Consistent Pricing

Salsa doesn’t punish you for breaking through certain thresholds of constituents or supporters in your database. We want you to grow like crazy, without worrying about crossing some artificial threshold where you’ll have to start paying significantly more money for moving to hte next tier. 

That’s why our pricing is consistent, starting at $179/month plus $0.01/record.
