Comments from schools, sports teams, clubs, and charities
Focus on Fundraising has many established clients in New Zealand. Comments from some of them are:
“Focus on Fundraising has the ability to easily access and produce detailed reports on donors, financial transactions and contacts. It provides a micro and macro view of our database which makes it easy to access our information, keep in touch with our donors and friends, and ensure we are talking to the right people at the right time. ” Tilda Bostwick, YWCA Auckland
“I have been using Focus on Fundraising for five years and have found it to be a practical and user friendly software. Our database has grown and the regular software updates have meant that we are able to utilise many more features in our daily office use. ” Susan Teddy, Alzheimers Auckland Inc.
“We have invested in “Focus On Fundraising” to properly collate and streamline our information and communication data base. The package apart from providing good systems for fund raising, analysis, and reporting, will also be used to develop a donor data base. It is also a very effective member data base system and information programme, which enables us to provide accurate and time saving reporting data.” Toi Ora Live Arts
“The system is ideal for not for profits as it allows grants to be recorded under several statuses such as waiting to apply, application made and awaiting approval, approved and in progress, completed.” Wendy Bremner, Age Concern Counties Manukau
“We have found Focus on Fundraising to be an excellent database that is practical and easy to use and fully satisfies all our fundraising requirements. We have received regular updates and the backup and support has been excellent.” Gerry Hanna, Asthma Society, Auckland.
“I rely on this program to hold all my data and to give me accurate records whenever I need them. The backup service is always there and Focus on Fundraising is prompt in answering my queries.” West Auckland Hospice
“We have been very happy with the system which for an initial very cost-competitive price has proven capable of doing all we need, and more. Our database over that time has grown around 300% and our use of the program has grown in complexity as we have learned to make use of the various facilities. ” Pontifical Mission Societies
“In my role as Funding Administrator for Youthline, I find Focus on Fundraising an easy way to store all types of information. I use Focus on Fundraising to record the contact details and payments of individual donors as well as organisations, and the fact that they can be separated into groups and defined fields makes mail outs and reports very straightforward and saves me a lot of time. ” Youthline Inc.
“Focus on Fundraising has given us the tools to keep track of all our donors, provided patient and volunteer databases, banking input and receipts, group mailing/email lists and reporting on all of the above.” Eastern Bays Hospice Trust
“I have received outstanding service from Focus on Fundraising over this period and really appreciate the very personal service they have given me.” Petra Page, Home and Family Counselling
“The Otago Community Hospice has been using Focus on Fundraising software for a number of years now and we find it very much suits our needs. The program has been designed to be used specifically for fundraising database management activities as well as recording details of volunteers working at the Hospice.” Otago Community Hospice
