How Streamlined Fundraising is Making the Dream of Homeownership Come True


Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans needed a system that could keep up with their growing organization – and they needed a system that would free up their time to be with donors rather than spending all of their time in their data.

When their previous system was too cumbersome and labor intensive, they jumped at the opportunity to switch to a system that streamlined their fundraising. And they decided Kindful was the best fit.

The Challenge

Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans had multiple issues with their previous CRM system. The biggest issue being that their current fundraising software was too cumbersome for most of the staff to use. They were wasting too much time trying to manipulate their data – time they could have spent fundraising.

They were looking for a simple, user-friendly, but powerful tool to track all of their contacts, donors, and homeowners. And as the majority of their donations are given online, they needed a tool that was able to process and track online giving.

The Solution

Now that Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans is using Kindful, all of their data is in one central hub. They are able to simplify and streamline their fundraising process. They have fewer things falling through the cracks and using Kindful has decreased miscommunication between staff members.

Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans uses a number of integrations that Kindful offers. They use Stripe for processing and tracking all online donations, Eventbrite for fundraising events, and MailChimp for direct media marketing.
