During this current crisis, working remotely and communicating virtually are more prevalent (and more necessary) than ever. Here are six of our favorite virtual collaboration tools to help nonprofits stay on top of their business.
Donorbox Online Fundraising Tool
Donorbox is an online fundraising tool that allows your organization to customize a donation form for your website. Donorbox’s advanced features, such as customizable receipts and software integration capabilities (for example, you can seamlessly add it to your organization’s Mailchimp or Salesforce account), make it the perfect virtual tool to conduct fundraising and donations online.
Kindful Donor Management Software
Kindful is a powerful donor management tool meant to help you keep on top of communication with supporters and organize all donor data and history. Kindful connects to your current fundraising tools as well as other software such as QuickBooks and Mailchimp, and helps you keep organized.
Mailchimp Email Marketing Tool
Mailchimp allows you to easily customize, schedule out, and brand each of your organization’s emails using different templates. Use it for monthly newsletters, announcements, follow-ups for memberships, and more while deciding which email list or audience you want it to reach.
What’s great about Mailchimp is that you can view analytics for each email, including how many people opened it, which links were clicked, and how many people may have unsubscribed. This tool also integrates with your other nonprofit software apps, and even offers a mobile option for email marketing on the go.
ivolunteer.com Volunteer Organization Tool
Organizing lists of volunteers, the hours they put in, and which events or tasks they’ve signed up for can be overwhelming for any organization. With ivolunteer.com, you can easily sign up volunteers and manage scheduling. It also includes reusable signup forms, automated emails, and advanced reporting and analytics.

Slack Team Communication Tool
Slack is more than a group chat. This team communication platform is designed for small and medium sized teams to direct message, group message, share files, and video or voice chat. You can even create your own customizable channels to organize your team conversations. Slack is a perfect option for quick questions or check-ins that don’t necessarily warrant their own email, and the ideal solution for remote workers.
MoneyMinder Accounting Tool
Nonprofit accounting doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. MoneyMinder is an easy-to-use nonprofit accounting solution for those without specific accounting experience. Approved by accountants and CPAs, MoneyMinder includes all nonprofit-specific accounting features and a task manager that helps you see what needs to be done, when it should be completed, and who needs to do it for accountability.
