Sumac’s Basic Contact Relationship Management (CRM) package is the foundation for all Sumac databases. It gives you the tools to manage all the contacts related to your organization, whether they are donors, clients, customers, board members, or volunteers.
Share and Update Data Wherever You Are
- Sumac has a cloud based version so you can share and update data from anywhere there is an Internet connection. No more need to email information back and forth. Staff and volunteers can access the same database at the same time from anywhere, so everyone always has the most up-to-date data.
Simple Contact Management
- With Sumac, all activity is connected to your contacts: donations, communication, event attendance, volunteer activity, memberships, and program involvement, so you can see a complete history of their relationship with your organization in just one click. Sumac also included revolutionary searching tools that simplify searching and queries!
Built-in Payment Processing
- Sumac is a PA-DSS compliant payment application that allows you to process credit cards quickly and easily in-house, or on your website! All you need is a merchant account to get started.
Robust Built-in Reports
- Sumac has hundreds of built-in reports developed with the best fundraising consultants. In addition, Sumac supports ad hoc reporting so you can easily create custom, one-off reports, or export data to other programs.
Powerful Mail Merge
- Need to stay in touch with constituents? With Sumac, you can produce your own letter templates with custom formats, fonts and logos, personalized text and mail-merged data like name, address and salutation. Sumac can even insert conditional text, for example, to include a special greeting to contacts who attended your recent event, or who donated in the last month.
Built-in Email Marketing
- Sumac comes with built-in broadcast email so you can send thousands of personalized emails for your newsletter or announcements in just a few clicks without using a separate application. Sumac also provides statistical reports that let you see who opens and clicks through on emails. If you already use an external email service, like Constant Contact, Sumac integrates seamlessly.
Add and Track Donations With Ease
- Sumac enables you to record extensive details about donations, including whether a donation is related to an event or campaign, and connect it to several contacts (donor, in honour, in memoriam, and soft credit, notification, influencers). Sumac supports all types of gifts including: in-kind, recurring, pledges, bulk donation import and matching gifts. You can easily search on important fields to find any donation.
Simple Event Management
- Sumac can help plan, send invitations and receive responses, track attendance and participation, record follow-up donations and other revenue and expenses, and even print name tags, placeholders and other identification for expected attendees, and agendas.
Track Time Spent On Activities
- Tracking the work spent by staff/volunteers is valuable for two reasons: you can give them the recognition they deserve, and you can report the man-hours to funding bodies. Sumac supports time tracking and reporting to help you manage all these processes.
Integrate With Your Website
- The Basic CRM comes with lots of features that integrate with your website. For example, create forms on your website to gather information, allow people to sign up for your newsletter, make a donation, or manage their information. We’ll help you create a page with the same look and feel as your website. When a form is submitted, all the information goes directly into your Sumac database. This service costs a one-time fee of $700.
Get Everything In One Solution
- A CRM database that stands alone is not much use, since contacts and donors also become members, volunteers, and are associated with your organization in other ways. It’s better when everything works together! That’s why Sumac’s Basic CRM integrates directly with all Add-on Options.
The second step in creating a Sumac database perfectly tailored for your non-profit is to choose your Add-on Options. Sumac has more Add-on Options than any other non-profit software.
