Software Advice: eBooks, Software Reviews, Comparisons, & Events 

Selection of a nonprofit software solution is a critical decision with major strategic and financial implications. As nonprofits (501c 3’s and associations) move toward using digital media to interact with members at a deeper level, the database plays a critical role.

The fundamental goal of our site is to provide useful resources specifically tailored to the nonprofit executive seeking database software for their nonprofit.


On this site, we provide answers to questions such as where to begin your search to find database software for your nonprofit, what are some popular software for nonprofits, and how should a nonprofit assess readiness and embark on a smart technology exploration.

We strive to continually educate and provide content through various utility tools and information which will help in that mission. This is an ongoing mission, so please check back regularly to see what we may have new.
