(June 29, 2023) Art Center Sarasota received a $6,033.20 grant from the John and Tana Sandefur Foundation and the Gus Lobenwein Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. The funds were used to purchase Donor Perfect, a leading donor management system used by many nonprofits across the country.
Kinsey Robb, Art Center Sarasota’s executive director, explains that a donor management system is a critical tool for engaging with members and supporters in meaningful ways.
“The Community Foundation of Sarasota County is committed to helping nonprofits elevate their operations to be streamlined and efficient,” says Robb. “We needed an updated donor management system to build a stronger philanthropic effort with our supporters and the Community Foundation was there to help. Their commitment enables us to focus on our mission while strengthening our organization.”
Kinsey adds that the new donor management system provides “valuable tracking information so we can easily provide appreciation and services to our donors and members, who are the backbone of our organization.”
