Kindful is a breath of fresh air in comparison

"Overall, it feels like a modern, easy-to-use tool. I previously used Blackbaud products, which were a giant headache (and they make you buy all their associated products to use), and this is a breath of fresh air in comparison."

Tara C, Director of Marketing View on G2
Donor Management Made Simple

"Kindful is intuitive and user friendly. It is simple to get new users up to speed."

James M, Director of Operations View on G2
Beautiful donor management software

"It's packed with features that are very useful to nonprofits small and large, and it interfaces well with other tools such as Eventbrite and Mailchimp so that we can use the ideal tool for each task. For a volunteer-run small nonprofit where everyone has other jobs and responsibilities, Kindful has made donor management very, very easy."

David H, Portfolio Manager View on G2
Kindful has been wonderful to work with

"The reporting features are one of the best parts in my opinion. When it's time for a board meeting, I simply pull the development report and I'm good to go! Also, the custom reporting based on activity has been crucial. Tracking down donors throughout the year has been a lot easier because of this feature."

Jean-Luc R, Assistant Director of Development & Communications View on G2
Great Donor Software

"Kindful is very easy to use and affordable. I've researched a few other programs and found this one to provide the same functions, including support, at a better price."
