TechSoup is proud to announce our newest donor partner, NetSuite.

NetSuite's integrated, cloud-based business tools can help enhance fundraising at your nonprofit or charity. The suite includes a donor database, email marketing platform, and e-commerce solution for accepting online donations. You can even track constituent activities and more easily create reports for executives and boards.

This suite combines accounting, enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), professional services automation (PSA), and e-commerce. See the product page for details about the subscription offered by TechSoup.

Is It Right for My Organization?

NetSuite is ideal for larger nonprofit organizations that store substantial donor data, send marketing emails, and accept online donations, either on premises or in the cloud. Organizations that spread these services across several systems often spend extra time manually transferring information among them. With NetSuite, you can automate your most common processes, saving time and money.

Other nonprofits, including Good360, Kiva, and the San Francisco SPCA, have all adopted NetSuite. TechSoup also uses NetSuite right now to manage its finances and will migrate other processes soon.

How Does It Work?

Manage Donor Info

Your constituent data, such as contact information and donation history, is all stored in one business management solution. You can access your data from one dashboard, analyze it, and track and target potential donors, all in less time.

Accept Payments Online

If you want to start an e-commerce site like an online storefront to raise money for your cause, or if you already manage one, NetSuite can help. The tools included in this suite allow you to build a basic e-commerce site, create a catalog of products and services, and integrate them with your existing site. You can also manage your inventory, run invoices, and collect payments in one complete system.

Manage Your Finances

The accounting features combine core accounting functions like general ledger, accounts receivables, and accounts payable, allowing you to monitor and manage your finances in real-time. It also helps ensure that your financial statements are accurate and comply with auditable accounting practices. Your finances are also integrated with NetSuite's other CRM and e-commerce processes to provide financial information across the entire solution.

Consultant Recommended

Unless your organization has experience implementing accounting and CRM systems, NetSuite and TechSoup recommend you hire a consultant to integrate Mid-Market Edition within your organization. More information on how to pick a consultant can be found on TechSoup's Consultants page and Choosing the Right Consultant.
