Will you need remote access to our Raiser's Edge?

Remote access is not essential but it can substantially reduce our project fee.

How do you establish your project fee?

Our fee will depend on the scope of work, personnel assignments, your location, availability of remote system access, and deadline for completion. We strive to strike a balance between efficiency, economy, and client preference regarding on-site versus remote work. Reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for travel, accommodation, and meals will be charged at cost.

Who should attend Raiser's Edge training?

In addition to core users from the Development department there is a huge benefit to introducing executive assistants and senior staff to Raiser’s Edge. They are often in contact with key supporters and privy to very valuable information. The more they understand about Donor Relationship Management the more likely they are to pass that information on. Executives who can knowledgably relay progress, answer questions from the Board of Directors, and approve funding for future Raiser’s Edge related projects.
