When you’re a missionary raising your own financial support, you have a
lot of work to stay on top of your support account. Your sending
organization already provides you an online portal or emails you reports
so you know who your donors are and their gifts. But you know there is
much more for you to keep track of than just gifts and donor addresses,
and that’s why you need DonorElf.
The chart below shows why missionaries need more than just emailed
reports or an online staff portal.
Reports / Portal
How much came in last month?
What are my donors’ names and addresses?
Who are first time donors so I can send them a thank you?
Are there any donors that give regularly but have stopped giving? I
need to follow up with them because most likely they didn’t mean to
I’m on the field and super busy with the ministry. I know I should
take time to look over my support account, but I don’t. I just want to
be emailed and notified if there is someone I need to be communicating
with, like a first time donor or a regular donor that stopped giving.
I have a lot of people I’m keeping track of—both donors and
non-donors. I want one place to track everyone because I know I’ll
forget to update information if I have more than one place to track
I just met with a friend and he plans to start giving $50 a month. I
need to record his name, address and that he plans to give $50 monthly.
I don’t have my computer with me, so I want to use my phone to add my
friend’s name, address and record that he plans to give $50 monthly.
Who has committed to give but it’s been a couple months and their first
gift still hasn’t come in? I want to send them a reminder.
I’m just starting out and am namestorming 100+ people that might be
interested in joining my team. I need to record their names, address,
phone numbers and email.
I mail out a newsletter on a regular basis. I need to keep track of the
names and addresses of people that want to receive my newsletter. Some
already donate to me but many do not.
I want to send an email out to all my donors. I have a free MailChimp
account and want my donors’ name and email address to sync with my
I have a lot of people I’m keeping track of, both donors and
non-donors. I want to create some groups and include the relevant
contacts in each group to help bring some organization.
I just met with a long time donor and would like to start sending them a
birthday card every year. I want to record their birthday and be
notified of it each year.
I just asked a friend to partner with me financially. She is in the middle of
moving houses and asked me to get back with her in a couple months when
things have settled done. I want to create a task reminder to follow up with

What Users are Saying
"Reports have saved me hours in helping executive leadership understand staff support levels, etc. For the missionaries on the field, the comments I get most are about the simplicity of DonorElf and the hours it saves the missionaries."
North American Mission Board
"When I first considered using DonorElf I was concerned about the cost. I didn't know if it would be worth it, but I quickly found that DonorElf made my life so much easier that the monthly cost was so worth it. I particularly like that it tells me when people don't pay or are late. And I love how user friendly it is."
"I really love that DonorElf provides me with all the contact info for my supporters. I can now have that all up to date and in one place. I also love that it tells you when someone stops giving. I have missed out on support in the past because I was not aware when supporters stopped and neither were they actually. This provides me with an easier way to be on top of that."
