About the guest:

The Science and Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) provides students with immersive hands-on opportunities to conduct student-led research.

With a mission to engage students in STEM, SEFH encourages teachers to embrace autonomy and offers a platform for students to share their research with the community.

The fair's primary objective is to ignite students' passion for STEM while providing them with invaluable opportunities to participate in regional, national, and international science fairs.

The students address real-world problems and work on projects ranging from suicide prevention to nanotechnology.

Anedot has made a significant difference in our fundraising operations. It has helped us streamline our record-keeping, track donor commitments, and provide more flexibility in donation options. The automation and centralized information have allowed us to communicate effectively with donors, launch campaigns, and incorporate links to our website for easy contributions. - Lionnel Ronduen, Associate Director

Fundraising challenges and impact of Anedot on fundraising operations

Before implementing Anedot, SEFH faced challenges in tracking and managing donations.

Multiple spreadsheets and accounts made it difficult to maintain centralized records, while effectively communicating with small donors throughout the year was a significant hurdle.

However, Anedot provided a solution by streamlining fundraising efforts, centralizing records, and offering greater flexibility for donors to contribute.

Anedot's automation features and centralized information have enabled SEFH to communicate effectively with donors, launch campaigns, and incorporate website links for seamless contributions.

"I found implementing Anedot relatively easy. With my experience in working with systems, I was able to navigate and set up campaigns. I also benefited from observing how other organizations used Anedot and replicated their approaches. The system's versatility, along with helpful resources and quick customer service, made the integration process smooth." - Lionnel Ronduen, Associate Director

The impact of Anedot on fundraising operations

SEFH Anedot Donation Page

SEFH identified several key features that have proven beneficial in their fundraising operations.

Anedot's central hub eliminated the need for multiple spreadsheets, allowing for efficient data management.

Customizable Action Pages and donation pages have been effective tools, and the organization continues to explore ways to leverage them further.

Anedot's multi-user access with different permission levels has also been advantageous for SEFH.

Anedot's system reduced the cost of time spent on administrative tasks and improved overall efficiency by consolidating information and streamlining processes.

Also, the ability to collect information and process payments through a single platform has been invaluable for the organization.

"The use of the system was very intuitive, like going through TurboTax and putting your taxes together. And, Anedot's support team was always responsive, whether through help tickets or live chat, and I felt like a valued customer." - Lionnel Ronduen, Associate Director

Looking forward

Based on the success of implementing Anedot at the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH), the organization is excited about the future possibilities.

The organization looks forward to a centralized platform that encompasses email lists and eliminates the need for multiple logins, streamlining their operations even further.
