Arts and Culture Add-on Recommendations



If you sell tickets, the Ticketing Add-on helps your organization manage the details of ticket sales such as payment processing, seating assignment and ticket printing. You can even sell tickets on your website if you opt for Website Integration.

Course Registration

If you run courses, workshops, or even summer camps, the Course Registration Add-on can help streamline the set up, delivery and follow-up for courses, eliminating the tedium of processing piles of paperwork. You can even allow students to register for your courses online, if you opt for Website Integration.


If you sell goods and services, the Sales Add-on manages pricing, taxes, discounts, and payment processing. It also keeps track of inventory levels and can handle revenue splits for consignment sales. It is ideal for theaters who run small gift shops, or galleries needing to manage consignment sales for artists.


If you have a monthly giving program or want to start one, the Pledges Add-on makes managing a monthly giving program a breeze! Automate payment processing, receipts, and the creation of donation and payment records, so you save time. The Pledges Add-on also tracks irregular pledges (e.g. A donation of $1000 to be made sometime next year) that typically accompany capital campaigns.

Grant Management

If you apply for several grants/awards in a year, the Grant Management Add-on will be a huge help. Build a structured, step-by-step approach to winning grants, streamline the application process, and report on outcomes.


If you need assistance finding the right people to approach for large donations, the Prospecting Add-on is the solution. Rapidly calculate a percentile ranking for each contact in your database, based on criteria you specify, to help identify potential large donors for a capital campaign, planned giving, or even good candidates for board members or volunteers.


If you need to illustrate complex giving scenarios for planned giving and large gifts that fall outside the routine of campaign-driven asks, the Proposals Add-on can help. This Add-on is ideal for organizations trying to manage a large planned giving program, as it records the required information and creates sophisticated illustrations for any gift scenario.


If you run a membership program, this Add-on is for you. Sumac Memberships is a complete membership management solution that streamlines membership management. You can even allow members to sign up and renew online if you opt for Website Integration.

Auditions and Submissions

If you accept applications and proposals as part of a judging process, the Auditions & Submissions Add-on streamlines the process to help you find the most appropriate submissions or most qualified people to match the requirements of your program. This is ideal for arts organizations who have a judging process for participation. For example, a gallery may need to judge proposals for exhibits, or an orchestra may have an auditioning process for performers.

Tour Booking

If you need to manage tour programs, schedule and book performers and venues, and do the necessary bookkeeping and follow-up, the Tour Booking Add-on is for you. Ideal for touring theatre companies or musical groups who need to manage all the performances on their next tour.


If you run regular auctions, this Add-on is for you. Keep up with the pace of any auction, and allow for quick check out. Dynamic updates provide quick results and reports, creating more time to engage with participants at your auction.
