What would you do if you woke up tomorrow and the entire contents of your database were gone?
Not only would all of your contacts be gone, but so would the history of donations and payments. If you use your database to track event registration, that information would be unavailable as well. If you completely lost your data, what’s left of your organization?
When it comes down to it, your database IS your organization.
As a membership organization, you need to have immediate access to:
- Who is current with their dues
- Each member’s membership level
- Lapsed members
- Event registration & payment history
As a charitable organization, you need to have immediate access to:
- Date & amount of last donation
- Corresponding donor level
- Donor’s current contact info
- Lapsed donors
You also need to have a sense of confidence that all of your data is securely backed up.
If your organization currently has a single person responsible for database maintenance then your organization is vulnerable. Whether this person is paid or a volunteer, access to your data can be abruptly cut off do to an unplanned absence or permanent separation from your organization.
