Next-Generation of Giving Power

How do you join two very unique, yet equally impressive, online platforms? With the purchase of DonorFirst by Ren, it was a top of mind question for our team.

DonorFirst led the evolution in technology for a donor-centric platform for donor-advised funds.  By delivering transparency and engagement for donors, DonorFirst allows donors to follow the impact of their charitable gifts while empowering staff with workflow efficiencies. As software as a service, DonorFirst provides organizations with the ability to utilize cutting edge technology while continuing to perform the administration of their gifts internally.

RenWeb was originally built as a staff interface for Ren clients who utilize our full administration services, primarily charitable trust administration. The website allows organizational staff to see all their planned gifts in one location and create reports. As Ren grew to service more gifts including donor-advised funds for financial services firms and pooled special needs trusts, RenWeb also grew. Today, RenWeb is not only a centralized aggregator of planned gifts but also a user-friendly website where contributions can be made, grants recommended and pooled special needs trusts beneficiaries can seek disbursements.

Our new product DFX is the perfect mash-up utilizing the strong name recognition DonorFirst enjoys in the nonprofit community with the stability and charitable gift expertise Ren exudes through its’ brand.
