Association Management Software Market Leader Continues Innovation with Integrated Solutions Associations Need to Raise Funds and Support Efforts
A growing number of Avectra clients conduct significant fundraising efforts with our current fundraising module and use our built-in tools to optimize their processes.
Avectra, the leading provider of web-based association management software (AMS), today announced enhanced fundraising solutions to help association leaders improve donor engagement, advocacy, and fundraising efforts - key revenue drivers for association and not-for-profits.
Avectra's leading association management solution (AMS) combined with the integrated, enhanced fundraising functionality allows organizations to manage their important fundraising activities within their central membership database. The combination of the industry leading AMS with powerful fundraising, e-Mail marketing, and website management provides real-time tools to drive ongoing fundraising efforts and eliminates the costly need for additional software and time-consuming integrations.
Avectra's new fundraising enhancements include:
New giving options including planned giving, challenge grants and special events Ability to renew expiring pledges including auto-renewals Added contact management integrated with the member and prospect database Additional campaign management option including recognition levels and asset tracking
"A growing number of Avectra clients conduct significant fundraising efforts with our current fundraising module and use our built-in tools to optimize their processes," said Patrick Dorsey, vice president of marketing for Avectra. "These enhancements drive member and fundraising success to the next level as associations step up fundraising efforts in such a competitive marketplace. Avectra customers will be able to identify their most valuable members and supporters as well as help strengthen the individual's relationship with the organization, fuel the passion to further their cause and deliver enhanced services to support ongoing fundraising."
Avectra's fundraising solution helps associations cultivate donor relationships and automate online fundraising by:
Identifying and monitoring interactions with prospective and active donors
Tracking campaign progress, pledges, and contribution metrics
Personalizing communication to target audiences to promote campaigns, event registration, and volunteer opportunities
Providing multiple collection options including pledges, online, and offline transactions
Routing gifts into multiple funds and accounts in the same transaction
Sharing information with key stakeholders through built-in fundraising reports
Identifying and motivating donors through personalized donor cultivation or "move management"
Starting with proven fundraising technology already available in the company's netFORUM Enterprise association software, the company will be introducing these enhancements in the upcoming release of netFORUM Enterprise 2010. Enhanced fundraising functionality will be available in netFORUM Pro in 2011.
