Q & A

Seeking information about an affordable fundraising software platform

I'm an event organizer looking for options and reviews of fundraising platforms online. I'm aware of and talking to Blackbaud-Kintera and Convio and am getting an idea of their software packages for fundraising event registration with individual fundraising including individual webpages and fundraising tracked toward the fundraising goal (most commonly with a thermometer icon) as a key component. It seems like these companies' products may be geared toward the national nonprofit organization that can purchase a large package and have it be economically feasible on the local level by virtue of volume of use across all its affiliates. I'm looking for a fundraising platform that does the same thing but on a basic level and more affordable for the small nonprofit organization. Any ideas?
