Howard Lake | 21 May 2013 | News Bee Software, part of the Blue Tree Fundraising agency, has created Funded, a new software product for smaller charities to help them with their fundraising.The system will allow charities to log their donor records, add contacts, search data by geography and cause, write appeal letters, record correspondence and produce reports.  It has also been “written with non-technical users in mind”.Matthew Adam, one of the directors of the company, said: “Some time ago we noticed that many small charities required a low-cost system to track all of the appeals they made throughout the year as well as analysing their data in a better way.

We are trying to rectify that!” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  18 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
