Donorfy, the fundraising software for charities and nonprofits, is now validated and available on Microsoft AppSource.
Microsoft AppSource is an app marketplace for Microsoft products. AppSource helps enterprise users find and gauge line-of-business (LoB) software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps from Microsoft and its partners which can help customers’ businesses to perform, compete and operate more efficiently.
Following a validation and certification process, Donorfy is now available on AppSource and we’re proud to be the only charity CRM listed on Microsoft’s marketplace.
As a solution based on the Microsoft Azure platform, Donorfy can be integrated with other Marketplace apps and services on Azure, such as Flow and LogicApps, for powerful automation and integration with other apps such as Twitter, Google G-Suite and MS Office. Donorfy’s REST API makes integration beyond the Azure environment easy too.
Donorfy is available in a shared Azure infrastructure, and in that case the user does not need to know anything about Azure to use Donorfy. Larger organisations, or those who wish to engage with Azure and its other services, can opt to have Donorfy run in their own Azure resources. This brings powerful benefits, including:
- Scalability - take control of database performance for higher data volumes or seasonal demand.
- Control over backup, and ability to restore to a point in time, using Azure SQL Backup services.
- Choice of Azure data centre.
- Direct, secure access to the SQL Server database using SQL Server tools.
- Much more flexibility with reporting and analysis of data due to direct access to the SQL views.
- Ability to add datasets, and create advanced integrations and automations.
- Access to other Azure services.
Organisations using the Own Azure option still retain all the usual SaaS benefits of Donorfy such as automated upgrades and constituent-based pricing, as well as all the benefits of the main Donorfy subscription. Own Azure is an option for organisations with up to 30,000 constituents, paid for with an additional subscription. It is included in the Donorfy subscription for organisations with 30,000 or more constituents.
Microsoft offer a sponsorship for eligible nonprofits to the tune of $5,000 per year, which more than offsets the cost of the Azure SQL resources for use with Donorfy.
