FIMS allows our Community Foundation staff to efficiently manage funds, payments, grants, and donations in one easy-to-navigate platform. You can easily create your own coding based off your organization's policies, rather than fitting your own into another...

I think Kickstarter's greatest values are the high amount of people that are aware of and regularly use their platform and Kickstarter's ability to weed out a significant amount of low quality campaigns. Though Kickstarter has certainly had its fair share...

The upgrades, without fail, cause the program to lose some level of functionality that our organization found useful. It is not particularly user friendly, for instance the Inter-Fund module is clunky and seems like an afterthought.

It can be rather difficult to make your project stand out among the several hundreds, or even thousands, of other projects on Kickstarter at any given moment. Also, the project approval process can take a long time and the transaction fees can be a bit hefty.
