Email Platform

Action Network is an online fundraising and volunteer email program manager and CRM.

✉️

Tool type: Email Platform
Meant for: Digital Teams

Problem it tries to solve:

How do I build a large digital list and program across a distributed area for both fundraising and volunteer recruitment without a lot of staff on the ground?

Use case:

If you don’t have a lot of staff on the ground but do have a large member base, you can easily send out event information and track RSVPs from one centralized location.

Biggest drawback:

The volunteer CRM portion of the tool is not robust enough to use on a statewide program (for instance, you can’t mark if someone actually completed an event or not-just if they ever signed up).

Does it sync to NGP VAN?

Yes, Action Network events can be synced to VAN events, although each one must be done manually. 

Testimonials 

Pros: Well known enough in the activist community that people knew where to find it/was easy to use on the volunteer side.


Cons: Back end was difficult and bulky.”
