All-in-One Online Fundraising System Key to Effective Constituent Relationship Management
In today's nonprofit environment, there's no excuse for this kind of chaos and inefficiency. There are companies now that offer "all-in-one" online systems for fundraising and advocacy that collect and consolidate all stakeholder information in a centralized database.
Fundraisers need a platform that includes a comprehensive array of fully integrated online fundraising and communications applications for donor tracking, website content management, online marketing, social networking, personal fundraising, online donations, online auctions and event management.
David Blyer is the founder and CEO of DonorCommunity, the first All-In-One software solution to provide online fundraising exclusively for the nonprofit sector. The company helps small to midsized nonprofits create awareness, cultivate donors, reach new potential donors and raise funds year-round.
David Blyer is co-founder, CEO and president of Arreva, a digital fundraising, donor relationship management, health care hospitality and auction software that has been serving the nonprofit industry for more than three decades.
David founded DonorCommunity in 1999, the first all-in-one fundraising software, and co-founded Arreva with Susan Packard Orr, through a merger with her company, Telosa, in 2017. Since forming Arreva, David merged two companies, acquired two companies, and integrated all technologies into one unified online platform and expanded the organization's account base in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
In 1994, he co-founded Vento Software, a provider of packaged vertical business intelligence applications, and served as CEO and president until November 1999, when Vento was acquired. After the acquisition, he served as president of the company's Enabling Technologies Division, opened offices in the U.S., Latin America and South Africa, and built a distribution partnership to expand globally and participated in acquiring 40-plus companies in a roll-up strategy.
Prior to Vento, Blyer held executive management and sales positions with Tandem, NCR and other leading technology/consulting firms.
David remains active in community affairs, serving as a member of the Entrepreneurs Council at Nova Southeastern University since September 2006, and the university's Blue Ribbon Scholarship Committee. He received the Nova Southeastern University Student Lifetime Achievement Award for 2013 Alumnus of the Year. He is actively involved with Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida and Davie Police Athletic League.
David received his MBA in finance from Nova Southeastern University, and his Bachelor’s of Arts in business management from the University of South Florida.
