About Nonprofit Data Solutions

Adam Lenter headshot


Our History Adam Lenter spent his “first career” working for and consulting to numerous nonprofit organizations and schools. Everywhere he went, organizations were hampered by inadequate data management systems. Through Adam’s observations he determined that poor data systems present a tremendous burden to organization leaders and their staffs. Organization leaders lack the ability to truly assess their organization’s performance and make well-informed strategic decisions about the future. Furthermore, staff members devote hours of their time performing basic functions that a good data management system could handle in seconds. This takes them away from higher level functions, demoralizes them, and costs the organization money in lost productivity. After seeing the same deficiencies time and again, Adam decided there had to be a better way. He launched Nonprofit Data Solutions to provide powerful yet easy-to-use data management systems for nonprofit organizations.
Our Unique Approach In the beginning, our goal was only to develop custom data management systems (what we now call “Program Portals“) to meet the unique programmatic and operational needs of individual organizations. But Adam had two key realizations that have shaped the direction of the company.

1. Small- to mid-sized organizations are poorly served by the existing donor management systems on the market. They are either too expensive or too difficult to use or they do not provide customer service. So Adam developed DonorAdvance – a powerful yet easy-to-use fundraising management system – to meet their needs.

2. For a lot of nonprofit organizations, fundraising is closely linked to programming (either many donors are also program participants OR raising and disbursing funds represents a major program of the organization). These organizations need one unified system to track their program and fundraising information all in one place. Adam created “integrated data management systems” (DonorAdvance seamlessly integrated with a Program Portal) to meet their needs. Today, Nonprofit Data Solutions is the only company to offer a single data system to serve the programmatic, operational, AND fundraising needs of organizations.

Through DonorAdvance, Program Portal, and integrated data management systems, Nonprofit Data Solutions provides nonprofit leaders the tools they need to operate efficiently, maximize their fundraising potential, and thereby achieve their missions.
