With Sumac Fundraising Software, you get the tools to streamline fundraising, and raise more money in one innovative package.
Prior to Sumac, Trillium Gift of Life Network was manually issuing donation receipts. Thank you and acknowledgement letters were also manually done after donation receipt. This process was time consuming and record keeping was a challenge. Now, using Sumac, issuing receipts, printing thank you and acknowledgement letters and recordkeeping is both faster and more streamlined.
