Capital Business Solutions has been working with the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls (VHBG), of Henrico, VA with their Raiser’s Edge software.
Working with Kelley Wendt, Director of Development at VHBG and her team, CBS performed a comprehensive System Assessment of Raiser’s Edge software including meetings with the organization staff, a review of current fundraising processes and systems, and a discussion of future needs. A recommendation for addressing the items contained in the findings report was provided and used as a reference for additional discussion and formulation of a detailed work plan. Areas that were covered during the process included data entry, constituents, gifts, mail and exports, database review including table configuration, modules, campaigns, funds and appeals, reports, along with identification of user training needs. As a result of the System Assessment future work will be performed including completion of a Road Map and additional user training.
