Problem it Solves

How do I build a large digital list and program across a distributed area for both fundraising and volunteer recruitment without a lot of staff on the ground?

Use Case

If you don’t have a lot of staff on the ground but do have a large member base, you can easily send out event information and track RSVPs from one centralized location.

Biggest Drawback

The volunteer CRM portion of the tool is not robust enough to use on a statewide program (for instance, you can’t mark if someone actually completed an event or not-just if they ever signed up).

Does it Sync with NGPVAN?

Yes, Action Network events can be synced to VAN events, although each one must be done manually.

Pricing
