Room to Read

Room to Read partners with local communities throughout the developing world to provide quality educational opportunities by establishing libraries, creating local language children's literature, constructing schools, providing education to girls, and establishing computer labs.


Room to Read was growing quickly and needed to improve its operations in order to reach the next level. Donor and gift information was being recorded in multiple spreadsheets, so it was difficult to track giving history, and staff members couldn’t easily answer donors’ questions. Pulling a report would often take as long as eight hours, and even then, the data was unreliable. The organization needed a better solution.


Room to Read selected The Raiser’s Edge for fundraising and constituent relationship management. With The Raiser’s Edge, all data is now located centrally, saving staff valuable time and resources.


Staff members now have access to accurate data. Overall fundraising efficiency has been improved by streamlining gift entry, reporting, gift acknowledgements, and mailings. Since moving to The Raiser’s Edge, Room to Read’s fundraising revenues have grown from $4 million to $22 million, and donor retention has increased due to improved stewardship.
