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
All in one, All accessible wherever you are!

"We like that we can have all of our donor information, history, notes, contact information etc. all in one place and all accessible wherever we are. The custom branding gives our donors assurance that they are still donating with us, even when they conclude their donation through the Kindful interface."

Rick L, Associate Director View on G2
Modern, Accommodating, Dynamic, All-in-One, Easy-to-Use, CRM for nonprofits!

"We were looking for a DMS that could seamlessly integrate email communications, print communications, gift acknowledgments, events, and online giving. Best of all, this is super easy to use!"

Shaelina H, Director of Development & Marketing View on G2
Kindful has been fantastic!

"Kindful has been a fantastic tool. I like it so much more than other CRMs I have used in the past. The support provided is unparalleled—they are quick to respond, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful."

Erin H, Grants Manager View on G2
I never loved a CRM until now

"Kindful has eliminated so much manual labor and annoying work we used to have to do. At first glance, Kindful [appears] 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."
