Environment and Animal Service Add-on Recommendations


If you have custom data that you need to track, the Custom Add-on allows you to build your own custom area in your database to track whatever type of data is unique to you. Define your own fields, drop-down menus, checkboxes, and more! Perhaps you rescue animals and need a custom area to track all the animals you rescue. Or maybe you’ve got a tree planting program and need a custom area to track all the trees you’ve planted.


If you manage 50 or more volunteers, this Add-on can help! The Volunteers Add-on streamlines the entire process of managing volunteers, from recruitment and analysis, to scheduling, performing necessary tasks and thanking those who donate effort.


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 need to collect additional information about your constituents, Forms is an ideal place to capture this kind of information. Think of a Form like a document attached to a contact’s file. Once a form is filled out, it is attached to the contact’s record, so it’s easily accessible. Forms can be filled out online if you have website integration, or in-house.


If you need assistance managing staff tasks and meetings, the Reminders Add-on can help. Reminders is a general-purpose reminder and meeting tracker that also assists your organization in planning, scheduling, and implementing multi-step action plans – procedures that need execution in the right sequence and at the right times. Whether it’s soliciting funders, delivering client services, or turning potential prospects into significant donors (moves management), Sumac Reminders helps you stay on track.

Awarding Grants

If your organization provides grants or awards to other organizations, the Awarding Grant Add-on will streamline and automate the process. Allow organizations to apply online, and staff to review and score applications online as well (requires Website Integration).
