If you use the paid version of PaymentEvolution, it can import a chart of accounts from ACCOUNTS, and export summary or transaction information on its payrolls for importing into ACCOUNTS. With the free version, you can view the GL Report in PaymentEvolution, and manually enter the payroll transactions into ACCOUNTS.

NetMinistry Logo
NetMinistry is a 10 year old service that helps churches, ministries, and charities design, host, and manage a professional web presence with all of the features and flexibility you'd expect from an enterprise-level solution. The remarkable thing about this service is that every client goes through the process of having their website custom designed by their production team - something that you usually only get when you are paying thousands of dollars.

After they are done designing the look of your website, they plug it into their content management platform, which allows you complete control over your website content, images, and applications. You have access to everything from standard page content to blogs and e-commerce. They do all of this for as little as $199 up front and $34.95 per month. They also have lower price plans that offer more basic features as well as higher priced plans that pay them to manage your web presence for you.

CauseVox Logo

CauseVox is an online fundraising platform that helps you design your own full-featured fundraising site for campaign, personal, and team fundraising. They built it with one purpose in mind: to tell your stories beautifully online, inspiring support and donations towards your cause. They do this through their simple, yet powerful, tools.

Charities, churches, non-profits and schools in the U.S.A. and Canada use CauseVox's social fundraising software. They love how easy and simple it is to set up a professional looking and fundraising-optimized site that is branded completely to their organization.

Pricing for CauseVox starts at $39/month plus a reasonable percentage per transaction, with no monthly fees until you raise over $3,000.

To find out more information, visit www.causevox.com or download their PDF overview. You can use the special promo code "S4NP" to get 10% off your first 6 months. The code is valid for the first 20 customers using this code.

Note to current users of the Software4Nonprofits DONATION program: It would be possible for us to build an integration, to import donations made via CauseVox into your DONATION database, and then issue the receipts from DONATION. We will do this once we hear from at least a few users that they are actively using CauseVox and would like to have this feature.


Perfect Table Plan - create a table seating plan for your wedding or event
PerfectTablePlan is used to plan the seating arrangements for fundraising dinners, banquets, award ceremonies and wedding receptions. It handles everything from managing your guest list through assigning seats to printing floor plans, guest charts and place cards.

You can even export donor names from the Software4Nonprofits.com DONATION program and import them into PefectTablePlan, for instance if you are inviting everyone on your donor list (or a selected subset) to a seated fundraising event.

Those of you in churches might also want to keep PerfectTablePlan in mind for recommending to couples who are getting married in your church, and having seated reception dinners elsewhere.
