Is Importacular really free?

It’s free to import constituent and gift data. That’s £0 GBP – corresponds to $0 USD, $0 CAD, €0 EUR (you get the idea).


However, should you want to make use of our dedicated support desk for this product please understand that there is a fee for this.  We have this in place so we can ensure you are given the most immediate and best support possible. For more info on the fee and what qualifies as in-depth support then please get in touch.

Avoid Duplicates

Automatically update constituents or create new ones whilst  avoiding duplicates with our custom lookup tools. Create your own criteria for finding duplicate records and choose how to handle multiple options so you never spend time cleaning up after an import again.

No More Files (Unless You Want To)

Importacular imports directly from the source. There is no need to export a file, change the layout, save it and import. Just one step and the data is brought into RE.

You can of course choose a file to import and with that you get all the lookup and data transformation tools meaning less work manipulating the file.

Data Mapping

  • Choose exactly which RE fields to import data into and clean up errors as you go.
  • Our data transformation tools allows you to change incoming data on the fly. “USA” or “UK” becomes “United States” or “United Kingdom” respectively.

Track Changes and Prevent Errors

Importacular is fully optimized to work with Audit Trail and Validatrix so if you are an existing customer you can start tracking imports and prevent bad data from entering your database straight away.

Set up your complex custom rules to prevent erroneous data from coming into RE with Validatrix.

What Services Can Importacular Integrate With?

We are adding new services all the time! See our Data Source FAQs for how to integrate with your preferred service/s.

Scheduled Imports

This is a paid for module where you can import data from data destinations that support scheduling without any user interaction.  Please see the user guide at the top of the page for more info.


  • We were struggling with manual imports from events, alumni surveys, and contact detail updates. Being able to accurately match records based on contact details and names rather than IDs has already saved us so much time and we now have the means to record all of our data in Raiser’s Edge. The Zeidman team were helpful and attentive, going out of their way to fix our specific problems. I would recommend both working with them and using their products.


    Grace Holland, Development & Alumni Office
  • I wasn’t sure if moving from Constant Contact to Raiser’s Edge would take a day or a week. I got it done in less than three days, so that is a success in my books. I hadn’t fully used Importacular before, so there was a learning curve, some trial and error, and mistakes made on my part. It was so much easier than using Import in Raiser’s Edge. With that, you have to match up the specific fields and create lots of other columns to get the data to import directly. For someone like me, not familiar with Import in RE, Importacular is helpful in transferring a lot of data. I know that in the future using Importacular will be much smoother and quicker.



    Ashley Light, Development Generalist
  • Importacular has been a huge time saver. As an organization that receives thousands of donations from multiple sources, Importacular has made it quick and easy for me to import data into Raiser’s Edge without having to enter one donation at a time. And best of all, it is free, easy to learn, and has helped us to stay on track during our busy times of year. I would highly recommend using Importacular!

  • We had the opportunity to use Importacular and were extremely impressed.  As we explore the use of third-party products like EventBrite and ConstantContact, the need to move data to and from Raiser’s Edge is critical.  Importacular offers sophisticated functionality along with a user-friendly interface. We are excited to continue exploring all the ways it can enhance the use of our data systems.


    Gina Gerhard, Business Systems Analyst
  • I run a number of imports to bring data from outside sources into our database.   Often these are adhoc lists in various configurations.  Importacular has the power and customizability to make this process simple and pain-free!  With user-friendly features to prevent duplicate records and the functionality to import constituents, gifts and attributes, Importacular is one of the most helpful tools out there.

  • We are hugely excited about the launch of Importacular, our new integration tool making imports a thing of the past. Now you can connect directly to the services that matter the most to you, pulling data into RE without messing around with .csv files or worrying about the security of emailed data.

    This is a game changer for non-profits who want to take advantage of the variety of specialist services now available to help with their fundraising and marketing, without losing the power that RE gives them in looking after their donors.
