All nonprofits should be familiar with free or heavily discounted software that are available to them at TechSoup. Here is an offer that is expiring soon so don't delay if you are interested.

The Mission Research Donation Program at TechSoup is changing from a
donation to discount program. (In the discount program, the
GiftWorks admin fee will be higher than the current admin fee.)

The supply of donated GiftWorks product is available at TechSoup Stock through May 24 or until all products are distributed, whichever comes first. They expect that the supply of donated GiftWorks products will be completely distributed before May 24, so place your donation request as soon as possible if interested.

GiftWorks is a fundraising software application for smaller nonprofits.
Nonprofits can use GiftWorks to track donors and donations and
to build targeted lists of donors, supporters and prospects. The
interface is designed for use with minimal training, so volunteers can quickly become productive. You can also use GiftWorks to send mailings and create reports.

This software is available at TechSoup Stock for an admin fee of$35, as compared to the published retail price of $299. Please note that only organizations with annual operating budgets of $500,000 USD or less are eligible to receive this donation.

I think you may want to be careful before recommending products, including Giftworks.

I know you said that it is for small non-profits, the problem is that it is lacking even the most basic functionality that it's rendered useless- even for $35.

My organization ran into all kinds of problems with Giftworks and we had to start over from scratch.

GiftWorks is not basic. I'd love to know who you are and what problems you've had with would be helpful to us and to other nonprofits.

Thank you for noting the donation to Tech Soup. The donation program is now over--we've donated over $1 million of software. Please let me know if you have any suggestions about GiftWorks.

Thanks so much!
