App 29/60: Donation Campaign Manager

Simitless helps charities and non-profits organize their donation campaigns.

Your association’s raison d'être is to make the world a better place, to make life a bit more bearable for the people you encounter. For the association’s members, for the community and for the society in general you are the driving force translating this inspiring, although rather theoretical, raison d'être into positive action. Yet, despite being the well of optimism that you are, even you realize that you won’t get far without money. It is for this exact reason that you carefully plan and organize narrowly-targeted and specifically defined donation campaigns. Such campaigns allow you to leverage your efforts by focusing your donors' attention on one issue at a time.


This is just the situation where Simitless can come in very handy in supporting you in your organizational and planning efforts. How so? Well, Simitless offers you an application model for managing donation campaigns, whose primary feature consists in helping you avoid mistakes and oversights. Having a proper campaign planning and management app is already half the battle, when you set out on your quest of contacting your most generous philanthropists for each campaign. They trust you to do good with their donations, and there is no way you want to let them down. Imagine how much easier it would be to manage such a humongous task if you could only centralize all your data in one secure application?

Consult the application model, then click the " Use this model" button to create your own copy of the app. Simitless is a system that adapts to your needs. Plus, it is risk-free. How so, you wonder? Well, Simitless does not require any disproportionate investment upfront to set your application up and running: try out the app first and then pay only for the necessary resources. At any time, you can either improve and grow your application, or, on the contrary, reduce its size and cut down on its capabilities. We developed Simitless with one core idea in mind – to make an application that would adapt itself to the way you work, not the other way around. To save your progress, think of creating an account by following the instructions on the green buttons! Once your application has been created from the model provided, invite all your employees and colleagues to join the application by creating a Simitless account. ( Edit app Access rights)

The main screen of the application opens on a module for managing your generous donors. Click the “Donors” label, to access the information concerning your donors, organized and displayed in a form of a table. The button enables you to create a new record. Each record collects the contact information of a given donor, alongside with a list of their previous donations, as well as a sum of these donations in one central entry. As a result, you can plan your next campaign with a clear focus on the most generous donors first.

The second part of the application is a table listing the donation campaigns you have already organized. This section allows you to centralize the data pertaining to each donation, organized by campaign. On the whole, this part of the app allows you to list not only the information on the campaign itself, but the sum total of all the donations, the objective of the campaign as well as the progress gauge.

And here you are, as if by magic (because what else is software and app development if not magic) you have abandoned the tedious ways of manual organization and management and moved onto the greener (and, more importantly, more efficient and time-saving) pastures of finally organizing real fundraising campaigns by means of a handy donation campaign management app. Finally, you can follow your heart and focus on getting your message across instead of managing the information.

And the additional good news is that this app comes with a bonus that I am offering you today.

Simitless disposes of an e-mailing function that is directly integrated into your customer/donor file. Often, when your donor base grows, you can get stuck with the free quotas that your email provider offers you. As a rule of thumb, these quotas amount to something around 200 recipients per day or 600 messages per month. I would, therefore, suggest that you open an "SMTP service" account. This is the email sending service. Professionals frequently use specialized providers to ensure the proper delivery of their emails. It is a paid service, but it can remain affordable, if it is well configured. You can choose from many providers such as Mailjet, MailGun or Sendgrid. Once your account is created, you can add the information of this account into Simitless, and Simitless will take care of sending your emails through this service.
