You can use your donor database to accomplish powerful things.


Raise more money. Build stronger relationships with your donors. Use your time more effectively.

These are the promises of your donor database. All too often your reality is more frustrating. Fundraising Nerd can help you.

Hi, I'm Amanda, and I founded Fundraising Nerd in 2013 to help nonprofit fundraisers like you make better use of your donor database.

My fundraising career began nearly 20 years ago at a domestic violence shelter. We were small and scrappy, and we raised a lot of money for a cause close to my heart. But we could have raised even more if we had used our data to its fullest potential.

I didn't truly understand the power of data until I worked in higher education fundraising, where my career became focused on donor data management. It was exciting to learn about this world, and frustrating that it had taken so long for me to learn about simple yet powerful tools for raising money more effectively.

Fundraising Nerd teaches nonprofit organizations of all sizes to manage donor data. Our goal is to make fundraising software and data make sense to you, so you can raise more money in support of your organization's mission.

Whether you are just starting out in your fundraising career or are a seasoned professional who needs to learn more about donor data management, Fundraising Nerd is here for you.

We are currently revamping our website, and will soon introduce our new free and affordable learning resources including video lessons, books, and toolkits. To be the first to know about the launch, sign up for Fundraising Nerd's mailing list.

Welcome! I'm glad you're here.
