To date, Heller Consulting has been best known as the nation’s largest and most experienced independent firm with a specialization in helping nonprofits use Blackbaud’s Raiser’s Edge®, one of the most common donor databases in the philanthropic sector.

- Targeted training so staff members have the skills they need to best use the software;
- Integration to online and other mission-critical, third-party applications;
- Strategies for deriving the full benefits from their CRM systems; and
- Instituting industry best practices in efficient and effective business processes.
Hundreds of nonprofits, including some of the world’s savviest direct marketers, use Orange Leap to manage key daily operations – such as donation processing, fulfillment, event and volunteer management, call center activity tracking and major donor relations – and also leverage constituent data from all available channels for building strong, lifetime relationships and driving fundraising. The only truly open solution for nonprofits, Orange Leap allows an organization to build the best possible, complete system by easily adding third-party and best-of-breed applications to achieve real-time, bi-directional integration of data from different sources (i.e., direct mail, television and radio, online, telemarketing, events, personal contact, newsletters and subscriptions).
“We’re very selective about the companies we work with and Orange Leap is one of the few that makes the cut – by far, it is today’s most open, easy-to-use and effective solution for nonprofits that engage in sophisticated, multi-channel constituent relationship building and fundraising,” said Keith Heller, Founder and Principal of Heller Consulting. “No product matches Orange Leap’s native features in enabling nonprofits to conduct highly complex segmentation to deliver the right message at the right time through the right medium – which is essential for high impact direct marketing campaigns aimed at cultivating strong relationships and stimulating giving.”
Through its Orange Leaped Partners program, Orange Leap teams with the top software and services companies, including providers of complementary products that clients can easily add to their Orange Leap systems for building CRM solutions that meet their organizations’ unique needs. As a result, Orange Leap clients reap the benefits of simplified access to the best products, systems integration, and marketing and fundraising consultants for the nonprofit sector. Orange Leap continues to aggressively expand its partner network to keep pace with strong client acquisition.
“We’re delighted to welcome Heller to the Orange Leaped Partners program – the firm is one of the best in the nonprofit software consulting business today,” said Randy McCabe, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Orange Leap. “Heller makes our growing network of very strong partners even stronger. Having this caliber of talent and expertise is increasingly important as more nonprofits chose our solution to run their organizations, especially for CRM and fundraising.”
