Software package for a small non-profit

Helping out a friend who helps out a small non-profit group. Currently
they are using an Access DB someone has tweaked for them over the years
but would like to move to something that allows easy reconciliation of
the checks and credit card dues payments.

This doesn't need to be free just not pricey.

Users pay yearly dues which starts on the month they join. Then get a
bi-monthly magazine produced by the group which is printed by a third
party printer.

So the program needs to track users and dues and print labels for the
renewal notifications when due. Each user record needs some additional
custom fields to add notes about users.

It has to have reporting capability so that they can get a report say of
paid up members to send to the printer.

It needs to have import capability so that the check deposits and CC
payments for dues can be downloaded from the bank and matched to the
member.


Any suggestions appreciated.

Re: Software package for a small non-profit

Quickbooks from techsoup.org + qualified 501c3 = nearly free.

http://www.techsoup.org/stock/category.asp?catalog_name=TechSoupMain&category_name=IntuitManage&Page=1&Cat1=Intuit&CatCount=1

browse around a bit, it is amazing how inexpensive hardware/software is for
notforprofits.

Re: Software package for a small non-profit

I noticed Novell was a founding sponsor of TechSoup, yet I'm not finding any
Novell products there? Did there used to be discounted Novell products for
non-profits there at one point?

I have been tinkering with it for this purpose. It is a bit clunky to
set up and manage the recurring annual dues.

Re: Software package for a small non-profit

Yes, I used to use them a lot for not-for-profits. Not sure why they dropped
out of techsoup though.
