Nonprofits Embrace Abila Elevate™ Fundraising and Donor Management System

August 11, 2015 – AUSTIN, Texas – Since its launch in late March, Abila Elevate™ has been popular among customers and prospects for delivering a smart, intuitive, easy-to-use, cloud-based fundraising solution. Elevate helps turn data into knowledge so fundraisers can better know and engage with donors and supporters, add and nurture new donors, and more easily and effectively manage resources. It’s built from the ground up with and by fundraising professionals, and is designed to help fundraisers spend more time connecting with donors in ways that matter most to them.

"Abila has a clear understanding of nonprofit needs, and this is truly reflected in a superb product that was made specifically for nonprofit professionals," said Sam Reza from Global Wildlife Conservation, an Abila Elevate Early Adopter. "The intuitive navigation and clean, smart design work exactly as they should. We are thankful that Abila allows organizations like ours to be such an integral part of the product development process."

"Our priority is to focus on our mission, so we’re always looking for ways to either streamline the work we do or find better ways to tell our story," said Shannon Hancock from Outdoor Lab Foundation. "Based on our early experience, Abila Elevate will help us do both and focus on what matters most to us as an organization. The simple, intuitive interface and easy-to-read dashboards give us the information we need and allow us to talk to our board about our priorities. We are excited to be able to understand our donors and talk to them in meaningful ways. It will definitely change the way we work."
