Exporting Data from Other CRMs

Transferring Data from Popular Data Sources

The GiveSmart implementation staff has extensive experience converting Fundraising CRM data from a wide variety of data sources, including other CRM systems.

While we expect the data to be provided in CSV format (with the 1stline containing the field names), we can help you convert generic data file formats into CSV files including:

  • Microsoft Excel/Google Sheets
  • Microsoft Access MDB files*
  • DBF files*
  • SQL files, including .BAK*

*There may be an additional charge depending on the complexity/number of tables in these file formats. 


Transferring Data from Other CRM Systems

In addition, we can provide instructions from the respective vendor to export files from the following CRM systems, and here are the links to their respective help documents, if they provide them. 

  • Blackbaud eTapestry
    • Using the eTapestry report writing tool, you can export your data to Excel/CSV files.
  • Blackbaud Raiser's Edge
    • Note:  Raiser’s Edge uses different terminology and the way to export data from RE is to create an “Import” file, as outlined from their help documentation:

      • "Create an import file of records in your Raiser's Edge database to use in another application.  All three options are available on the General tab. 
    • While unfortunately counterintuitive, it is the best way to export records from Raiser's Edge to GiveSmart DonorCRM. 
  • Bloomerang
    • Bloomerang allows you to export data through creating a custom report.  You can also download all files by:
      1. Login to Bloomerang.

      3. Click Edit on the Organization tile.
      4. In the Database Export pane, click Create New Export. The export may take many minutes to finish.

      5. Click Download.
