We switched to Kindful after using Salesforce for years

We switched to Kindful about a year ago after using Salesforce for years. It's been really user friendly, and the best part is that I can call and ask questions to get help. It's been a lovely, streamlined way to keep track of our donors and their transactions.

I came across Kindful and all "No's" turned to "Yesses."

I had never used a CRM before and looked into Salesforce and Neon. As a new nonprofit, we could not afford Salesforce's 15K implementation and training so their sales rep had no interest in talking with me...Thankfully, I came across Kindful and all "No's" turned to "Yesses." Within an hour my company info was set up, my donor processing was activated and my donor page was designed, up, and running.

Great customer service, user-friendly interface

"Kindful has amazing customer service. I also like how clean the campaigns look and how easy they are to use, on the admin side and the user side. We have seen our online donations increase, simply because the donation software is more appealing."

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!

Kindful saves us time and makes donor management much easier!

"Kindful's user interface is easy to work with and not intimidating for my staff. It is quick to find the information I need. The donation pages are beautiful and allow donors to pay for the fees, which 70% pay, saving us a lot of money. The support staff is very helpful and quick to answer questions."
