Kindful integrations simplify everything

I conducted thorough research prior to choosing Kindful, and I would highly recommend Kindful as currently the best option for small to mid-sized nonprofits looking for a CRM and payment processor to manage fundraising and development.

Joanna J., Nonprofit Professional View on G2
I never loved a CRM until now

At first glance Kindful [may seem] pricier than some of its competitors, but when you consider how well it works, how many products you're actually getting, and the fact there's no additional fees, it's worth every penny.

Kyle M., Executive Director View on G2
Kindful is easy to use and their customer service is stellar!

I came across Kindful and all "No's" turned to "Yesses." Whenever I have a question about anything, I call their phone support line and they spend as much time as I need helping to answer and solve all of my questions. They are kind and patient and I feel attentively cared for with the seamless communication that occurs among the tech support team
