Bloomerang requires a minimum of 1-year commitment with additional fees for organizations who choose to pay by check. Adding new donor records requires an upgrade to the next pricing tier.
The Bottom Line
Bloomerang might be a good fit for organizations with limited needs and few users. It is missing some functionality that many nonprofits may need, such as printing mailing labels, creating database backups, and setting default values for gift entry and donor records.
DonorPerfect offers significantly more functionality and capabilities built for growth. With a more flexible pricing model and easily configurable system, DonorPerfect is a smart and powerful alternative to Bloomerang.
