Arreva Software Will Offer Donor Management and Online Fundraising Solutions that Scale from the Small Nonprofit to the Enterprise
DonorCommunity, Inc., developers of the industry-leading cloud-based platform for online fundraising and event management and Telosa Software, developers of the affordable and easy-to-use Exceed! Basic, Exceed! Premier, and Exceed Beyond line of Donor Management solutions, jointly announced today that the two companies have merged to form Arreva, a software company serving the fundraising needs of nonprofit organizations across the globe.
Telosa Software, founded by philanthropist and computer scientist Susan Packard Orr in 1986, and DonorCommunity, founded by computer industry veteran and software entrepreneur David Blyer in 2010 have won widespread recognition for their respective suites of innovative cloud computing applications. At launch, Arreva has thousands of satisfied customers, including a blue-chip roster of national nonprofits that include the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Ronald McDonald House Charities®, The Arc, The National Association of Police Athletic Leagues, Variety - the Children’s Charity, Meals on Wheels America, and many more.
“This merger is a major milestone, not only for us, but also for the nonprofit industry as a whole,” said David Blyer, Arreva CEO. “Both Telosa and DonorCommunity have earned a peerless reputation for the quality and completeness of our respective software products and for our uncompromising commitment to service and support. This spells the end of the expensive, antiquated, and hard-to-use products from legacy providers that have held so many nonprofits hostage over the past few decades. As Arreva, we’ll be able to offer nonprofits of every size a suite of best-of-breed applications for online fundraising, event management, campaign manager, grant management, gifts manager, people and organizations, donor relationship management, volunteer management, peer-to-peer fundraising, email marketing and Website content management. Arreva also possesses the industry expertise, organizational maturity, and experienced executive team needed to fully leverage these industry advantages. We’re excited about our prospects and looking forward to moving ahead together as one company.”
“For more than 25 years, Telosa has been empowering nonprofit organizations of all sizes to change lives and serve our communities by providing the powerful, easy-to-use software products they need to achieve their fundraising objectives,” said Susan Packard Orr, founder and chairman of Telosa Software, Inc. “Since then, we’ve continued to evolve our products to address new computing paradigms and the market dynamics occasioned by the rapid emergence of online fundraising. In April 2013, we released Exceed Beyond, our first cloud-based donor management product. Now, by merging with DonorCommunity, we can jointly offer a range of cloud-based fundraising solutions that will meet the needs of every nonprofit at every stage in their organizational development with a product line and value proposition that is second to none.”
Arreva will be headquartered in Fort Lauderdale and also maintain its existing sales and support operations at its offices in Palo Alto, California. David Blyer will lead Arreva as CEO, with Telosa’s current CEO, Gregg Davis, taking on the role of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Blyer, Orr, and Jeff Foran will have seats on Arreva’s three-member Board of Directors.
