Note:  This book was written for The Raiser's Edge version 7.  In 2015 Blackbaud released Raiser's Edge NXT, the next generation of Raiser's Edge, but the book is still as applicable as when it was written:  RE NXT still uses the version 7 interface for much of its functionality, and the concepts discussed in the book are almost all just as applicable to the setup and use of RE NXT as they are to RE v7.

This is a really useful book. Bill Connors was a successful fundraiser before he became a fundraising software guru and you can see that from the way he writes this book. His enthusiasm for fundraising, and for The Raiser’s Edge’s role in supporting fundraisers, shines through on every page.
