HubSpot for Nonprofits



Hi nonprofit friends!  Thought I'd say hello and drop a quick introduction 😊


I work for an education nonprofit called OpenMind as the first ever Development Manager. We have recently made the leap from no CRM or database at all, to HubSpot! I'm very excited and curious to hear how others in the nonprofit space have built out HubSpot to manage things like individual giving, online donations, grant and report tracking, sending gift acknowledgment letters, etc.


I'm most curious how you've all figured out a work around for tracking individual giving. For example, if we get a check in the mail for $20 from an unknown individual, should that constitute a full on "deal" ? Or would you just mark that as a note on their contact file?


Let me know if you have any good tips or resources for starting out!
