User Reviews of Bloomerang

Submitted on February 24th, 2023 by Hilary Mahan

This is a limited CRM run by unprofessional and ineffective people. We have broken our contract and requesting a refund. What we had hoped to be a move to simplify has only complicated our efforts. Stay clear.

The Good…

The Bloomerang sales website is a great resource for non-profits, but you don’t have to use the platform to take advantage of the resources. The website is more thorough and thought out than the donor database capabilities and processes.

The Bad…

Donor Management - The tracking of donations is the most frustrating aspect - the CRM platform lacks a robust method of tracking and soft crediting donations. The system is a template that allows for very little flexibility. If we can’t get the right donations associated with the right donor, how can we manage them. How can we acknowledge and thank the donor correctly? How can we actually fundraise?

Tracking Donations - Tracking donations is a major part of any effort but we also use it to run our campaign - making shifts based on the data that record. For example, we track the children who belong to a donor family by school site to see how much is raised at that school site. We run reports to identify what grade levels are lacking donations or which donors we will expect matching gifts from. The inability to produce accurate reports is disastrous.

On Boarding - The process for transferring our data was ineffective, taking months of weekly calls that were repetitive and offered little progress. We had intended Bloomerang to ease our workload and provide our small organization with more efficient processes. This is not the case - we have spent many hours in the transfer stage bringing incorrect and inaccurate data fields to their attention. We cannot afford to lose time in the middle of a consecutive campaign.

Our goal is a $2,000,000 Endowment fund to make Vail Mountain Rescue sustainable without continued fundraising. The fund was at $500,000 when we started with Bloomerang and is now over $1.4 million.

[Bloomerang] helps us organize to report the source of donations and communicate with donors, e.g. news stories and thank you letters. It also helps us with registrations for special events.

Bloomerang has helped us raise a lot more gifts.

After switching to Bloomerang, all of the donations were immediately transposed onto the donor’s profile, one less step! The built in email system allowed me to cancel a separate email program saving us money, plus it tracks the email on the donor profile and still provides analysis. Bloomerang has become more of a one-stop shop where I can store donor information, send out emails, and track volunteer information.

Since switching to Bloomerang we have really had a focus on lapsed donors. With the ability to pull a variety of reports, learn more about those donors, and target them appropriately, we’ve seen a number of them return.

Being able to send communications (email) through Bloomerang has alleviated a large headache. The new templates are great and the ability to test and preview on desktop and mobile make sure we have everything correct before sending it out. We’ve even started an e-newsletter to a specific constituency base and with the analysis we can track the open rate and see who isn’t reading our emails!

Bloomerang has it all! And if it doesn’t have what you want, they are probably working on it.
