How is Big River Different?

Big River is more than a software provider.  We are a partner.  We have built a reputation for providing innovative solutions for nonprofit fundraising.  We believe that your creativity should not be limited by the capabilities of your fundraising software.  We believe that simple tasks should be easily accomplished.  We believe that together we can make your online fundraising more successful than ever.

How long does it take to launch?

Of course it depends upon the complexity of your online donor commerce, but set up generally takes 48 hours or less and we routinely have organizations with complex needs entirely up and running within a week.

Can Big River integrate with my Raiser’s Edge database?

Yes.  Integration is facilitated through the use of technology that automatically reconciles online contact and transaction data against your existing database. Net new information is automatically imported into the database and any data suspected to be associated with an existing database record is flagged for review by a staff member who decides whether to create a new record, append an existing record, or disregard the import.

Does Big River support mobile giving?

Yes.  All Big River forms are optimized to provide a great mobile giving experience.  In fact, Big River pages can be integrated into an existing mobile app so you can leverage mobile engagement to drive giving.

What does website integration mean?

Big River offers full website integration.  This means all your Big River pages are branded to absorb the look and feel of your organization’s web site. The URL reflects your organization’s domain, and there is no obvious vendor branding on the page.  Why does this matter?  Fully integrated donor commerce inspires the greatest donor confidence and typically provides the best donor experience.  Best of all, with Big River, you don’t need technical staff with html, css or javascript skills to set up or maintain your integration.  We take care of that for you.

What types of donor commerce does Big River support?

Big River was designed to provide comprehensive support for all donor commerce including:

  • one-time gifts
  • recurring donations
  • memberships
  • event registrations
  • classes and workshops
  • raffle ticket sales
  • merchandise sales
  • sponsorships
  • ad sales
  • and more

The platform also supports crowdfunding and peer-to-peer / team fundraising.

Can I track offline gifts?

Of course.  Online donor commerce is intended to work alongside offline, so we make it easy for you to enter any offline transaction into the system.  This enables you to track receipt of payment made via cash or check, immediately issue an email receipt, and get a comprehensive view of how a particular event or campaign is performing.  Oh, and there is no transaction fee applied to offline gifts entered into the system.

Do you require a long-term contract?

Nope.  Our standard license is month-to-month.  Of course, we know that you’ll be so pleased with our products and service that you’ll want to stick around.  And for those who want to commit to a 3-year license, we are happy to offer a significant discount.

Do I need a merchant account?

Nope.  Big River provides your organization with a free merchant account and payment gateway so you can accept credit cards online.  All transactions are tracked and funds are automatically batch deposited into your bank account.

Can Big River support a single event or project?

Yes.  Just let us know what you need and we will be happy to provide with an a la carte price to support your campaign.  Want to give us a try before committing to a full on-board?  This can be a great way for us to get to know each other!

Can I get a demo even if I’m not ready to purchase right now?

Sure thing.  We welcome all inquiries.  Whether you’re looking for an immediate solution, or just exploring your options, we’d love to talk with you about your fundraising goals and strategies and show you how Big River can support you.
