Historic Wilmington Foundation Chooses Patron Software Donor Management System

Wilmington, NC (PressExposure) January 30, 2009 -- Patron Software, Inc., the Wilmington, N.C.-based provider of software for nonprofit organizations [http://www.patronsoftware.com/], announced today that the Historic Wilmington Foundation (HWF) has upgraded to Patron Software’s Version 2.0 to manage its donor database of friends and supporters. Patron Software Version 2.0 provides Historic Wilmington Foundation with a variety of donor management tools to help get Wilmington area residents, employers, educators and philanthropists more actively involved in historic preservation, both as donors and in other ways.

“Our donor management software is about more than just raising money,” said Joanne Riesz, Director of Sales and Marketing. “It’s about building a community of individuals with shared interests and concerns.”

The Historic Wilmington Foundation promotes historic preservation in the North Carolina Cape Fear region through educational programs, advocacy, community involvement and fundraising events.

“We have been pleased with our purchase of Patron Software”, said George Edwards, Executive Director of HWF. “With Patron Software, we can identify specific segments within our community, such as members, non-members, volunteers, and historic site owners. In one project, we identified all the buildings in the area designated with our historic plaques. The new memberships we acquired from a mailing to those households and businesses substantially offset the foundation’s investment in Patron Software. The software also makes it easy to identify lapsed members and invite them to rejoin, and to remind current members when it’s time to renew. When they do, we are able to immediately generate thank you letters.”

Patron Software, Inc. was founded in 2001 when Joanne Riesz, then Executive Director of Wilmington Symphony Orchestra met Jenny Romanelli, former Chief Information Officer of a New Jersey direct-mail marketing firm. The combination of Ms. Riesz’s nonprofit experience and Ms. Romanelli’s IT background combined to create a company that offers quality nonprofit software solutions that are flexible and affordable. The Patron Software package includes fundraising software [http://www.patronsoftware.com/subscription.asp] as well as the capability for managing volunteers, tracking memberships and programs, and managing capital campaigns [http://www.patronsoftware.com/learn-more-donor.asp]. Additional services include custom programming, support packages, and training.
