An Alternative Donation System
Looking to replace your Membership Plus system, or a program that has gone out of business, like Daymark's Church Partner or Viansoft's Vian Church Contribution System? Need an easier and more user-friendly donor and donation management or church management program?
Consider DONATION. It has over 5,000 registered users, and it is very affordable, at $80 or $150 depending on whether you want the Standalone version, or a multi-user Network version. A free limited-feature Lite version is also available.
DONATION can even convert your Membership Plus data - organization info, members, funds, and contributions (which are called donors, donation categories and donations in DONATION), for many versions of Membership Plus. It can also convert your Viansoft Church Contribution System data - donors, donations and categories.
To support DONATION, Cooperstock Software provides comprehensive documentation and quick, effective technical support, via email, phone, or our Support Forum.
- The Help file is installed with the program, and it includes the same contents as the online help and the PDF manual, which are on the Documentation page.
- A year of support is included with your paid license (30 days for the Lite version, with support contracts available).
- The Support Forum demonstrates that DONATION users experience very few problems, and questions are addressed quickly and professionally.
- We publish a complete list of all new and changed features and fixed bugs in each new release of DONATION.
- We receive many unsolicited testimonials.
Just Right for Your Organization
Other programs such as Membership Plus may have more advertised features than DONATION. That may not make much difference to your organization if they do not work the way you want them to, or if 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, 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.)
Switching from Wincrafters The Church Assistant
DONATION has a special webiste 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.
