We use Importacular to import a large number of supporter engagement donations into Raisers Edge from our online portal and other giving platforms such as Charities Aid Foundation, Virgin Money Giving and Just Giving. We managed to easily create a mapping so that along with adding the gifts, new constituents records for new donors who are missing from our database and created and existing records’ data is automatically updated, including contact details, opt-ins and more. This is all done on a significantly easier interface than the import module that exists in Raisers Edge and is very easy to customise for varying campaigns and appeals.

Including the brief amount of time it took to set up the mapping template, we’ve managed to save over eight hours a month in processing time compared to the built in import function on Raisers Edge.
