Keep on top of all of your supporter information in an easy to use dashboard.
Log communications with your supporters, to keep track of who's been sent what.
Make it uniquely yours.
Create custom fields and record types to store literally any sort of data you can imagine.
"The coolest thing for me is just that we can use it for every type of person that engages. I think that's testament to how effective Beacon is."
Gillian Graham

Save time with automations.
Set up “if this, then that” style workflows to help everything run smoothly and accurately.
"Before we partnered with Beacon, we ran an event which had an estimated 110 hours of admin work, which is 50 full days! We repeated the event during Beacon setup and the admin took an hour."
