The top 7 CRMs for nonprofits

As a nonprofit, one of your organization’s top priorities (after saving the world, of course) is effectively managing close relationships with your donors. As your donor base grows, it can be all too easy to get overwhelmed with keeping up with them all. CRMs — aka constituent relationship management tools — can help streamline your donor communications, helping you keep that personal touch without much hands on management.

There are tons of different CRMs that can help your make your job (and, ultimately, your life) easier.
