SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Vendini announces the release of its comprehensive web-based fundraising system at Over the past ten years, Vendini has provided a powerful ticketing and marketing system to customers around the world – and now it also offers an integrated fundraising solution.

"We've been listening carefully to our customers who rely on donations to keep their organizations afloat," says Vendini founder Mark Tacchi.  "We found that many non-profit organizations run several systems; one system to manage donors, another for ticket sales, and another for email marketing. Then they have to tie each of these into their accounting system."

Vendini brings it all together into a single system that gives non-profits and arts organizations a better way to run and manage their fundraising campaigns.

"Vendini provides clarity across the entire organization," says Mark Tacchi. "Fundraising and development teams are able to see ticket buyer data. Marketing teams can easily launch email campaigns promoting upcoming events. Best of all, all of the vital fundraising data is visible in one simple view."

Fundraisers will be delighted to discover that this advanced functionality does not come with a big price tag - Vendini offers this comprehensive system at a price non-profits and arts organizations can afford.

"We understand how important fundraising is to the arts, and we also understand that the cost of traditional software systems can be prohibitive," says Tacchi. "We've decided to include the fundraising system as part of our standard low cost solution."

With the Vendini system, organizations can accept donations of all types – including cash, credit cards, pledges, and web-based donations. From large to small, from one-time gifts to recurring payments – Vendini manages it all. Vendini also processes donations online and automatically sends thank-you emails, making organizations more efficient without extra staffing resources. Vendini even extends into the mobile space, with solutions for scanning tickets and accepting mobile payments.

Says Tacchi: "Vendini built this solution to help fundraisers succeed."
