We have been working hard here at BetterUnite over the past few months. While our platform has, from the beginning, offered many of the most pressing solutions for small to midsized nonprofits' fundraising needs, we kept thinking, "What if we could do more?"
So... we did. Just like that, BetterUnite's already robust donor management feature set is improved and vastly expanded (while still remaining user-friendly and easy to navigate).
Here's a comprehensive list of all everything that we've released since we launched. It's a long list, but we're kind of excited about all this new fun stuff and we like to show off.
We will continue working on new enhancements (we already are) and we will continue to listen and be responsive to you. If you have any specific needs, requests or even feature suggestions, please continue to send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
