An Alternative Donation System
Looking to replace your Membership Plus system (for which support ended after March 2016), GiftWorks (™ FrontStream Payments), or a program that has gone out of business, like Daymark's Church Partner, Viansoft's Vian Church Contribution System, or Geminon Software Church Edition? Need an easier, less expensive and/or more user-friendly donor and donation management or church management program?
Consider DONATION. It has over 6,000 registered users, and it is very affordable, priced at only $90 or $160 depending on whether you want the Standalone version, or a multi-user Network version. That includes a year of upgrades and support. There are no monthly fees! A free limited-feature Lite version is also available.
DONATION can Convert and Import your Data from:
To support DONATION, Cooperstock Software provides comprehensive documentation and quick, effective technical support, via email or phone.
Other programs such as Membership Plus and GiftWorks may have more features than DONATION. That may not make much difference to your organization if they do not work the way you want them to, they are not affordable, or you aren't using all of those features. Many small to mid-sized churches and charities find that DONATION is just what they need. Check out Why DONATION? and the Version Comparison page, which lists all features by version of DONATION.
Try a free 60-day evaluation of DONATION, or the completely free
Lite version, and see how it can help you.
As well as the ability mentioned above to import your donors, donation
categories and donations from Membership Plus, GiftWorks, VianSoft or Geminon, you can use a simple
DONATION feature to import your donors from other systems, as long as you
can export the data from those systems as text or Excel files.
(This feature is not in the Lite version, however.)
DONATION has a special website for users of the Wincrafters program The Church Assistant, at wincrafters.software4nonprofits.com. David Bridger, the author of The Church Assistant, retired after October 2011, and has recommended that his users switch to DONATION. DONATION can import much of your data from that program.
