A window into your charity

Build trust and save valuable time by enabling your supporters to see and change the data you hold on them.
How your portal helps
Beacon’s “portal” feature could be a game changer for your charity. If you find yourself knee-deep in administrative tasks like updating donor details and tracking volunteer activity, you’re in for a treat.

You can grant stakeholders access to records and fields of your choosing, and even allow them to create new records.

Here are some common stakeholders that would benefit from your own portal:
Let donors update their contact details, as well as view their donation history. No need to ever pull this data manually for a donor over the phone again!
Event attendees
Let attendees provide additional information that may not have been collected at the time of booking, such as dietary requirements or scanned documents.
Let your clients see the status of their case, upload supporting documents and manage their personal details.
Grant applicants
Complex application processes can be handled smoothly and simply. Applicants can return to their applications whenever they need to.
Let your organisation’s members see and update the details of their membership.
Let volunteers set their availability, edit their details and log hours, all from within their own personalised space.
Innovative charities choose Beacon,
and stick with Beacon.

Every other provider we spoke to said they could serve the non-profit industry, but they were really just relabelling. Beacon is built for charities.

How does the portal work?
As with everything in Beacon, the portal is almost shockingly simple. Here’s the basics in 3 steps:
User login
Your stakeholder enters their email address into a secure form.
Access link is sent
Your stakeholder will receive a secure access link via email.
Portal ahoy!
Your stakeholder will get instant access to the portal where they can manage the fields which you allow them to update.
Don’t just take our word for it…

How Kids Matter used workflows to cut their case admin in half
When a case is created in the Programme Support Pipeline, all the relevant tasks and dates are automatically populated. Everything the Support Coach needs to manage their Facilitator caseload just gets put right in front of them.
