Thanks for your comment, SHMK. FUNDimension isn't necessarily for organizations just starting out, although many of my customer are startups. Organizations raising less than $40-50,000 a year probably will use something less expensive. There are plenty of products out their to meet their needs.

But for organizations that can spend money for software, FUNDimensions provides them a powerful and effective advantage in raising more money- recouping many times their software investment, both through better fundraising practices, and through reduced staffing requirements.

I have a long list of satisfied customers, a majority of whom moved to FUNDimensions after using something less expensive, because they saw that FUNDimensions served their needs in a superior and valuable way. Our web site has a list of our customers.

Before anyone here writes off this product because of the price tag, check out competing products, many of which sell at several multiples or more of FUNDimensions' price. And, have a look at the feature list, the work that goes into a quality database product, the tens of thousands of dollars I've personally invested in it over the years, and the responsibility I bear to my customers for their success, their training, and their support these last 16 years. I think you'll see it is really a tremendous bargain for many- not all- organizations. Good software on this scale costs money.

Being shocked by a expensive app that is just a 'filemaker database' is a bit like being shocked at any expensive app that is a just lot of 'binary code'.

Thanks, I got a chuckle out of that. But its not a Filemaker database. And, it not expensive, it very cheap, compared to other software in its category.

Does anyone else see the irony in a fund raising application that costs so much tat you might need to do fund raising to buy it...

This is not a Filemaker database. In evaluating price, this poster has not done their homework.

FUNDimensions competes on a feature basis with products costing from $2300 to $3000 and up. (The most popular package is Raiser's Edge, a Windows only product that starts at about $8000, not including an annual maintenance contract and training. Many NPOs find that FUNDimensions meets their needs, for much less money. And it runs on Mac _or_ Windows.) There are about 50 nonprofits currently using FUNDimensions, and nearly all seem to feel it is both a good value and a powerful aid in the fundraising efforts. A partial list with testimonials is at: http://www.fundimensions.com/general_info/company_profile.html.

If you will look at competing products, I think you'd have to admit that FUNDimensions is a hell of a great value. Its 10 years of serious effort on my part, and still under improvement. Its got fabulous documentation, a web site with rich content, and is backed up by fast, personal service directly from the developer. It is mission-critical quality in a true cross-platform product that dozens of users hammer on all day, every day.

FUNDimension is really _underpriced_. I challenge anyone who researches similar products to explain otherwise.
