Balgord Software Solutions Announces New Division, Affinity NFP, Dedicated to Helping Nonprofits Fulfill Their Missions

Offering the latest fundraising and constituent relationship management technology, Affinity NFP helps nonprofit organizations improve effectiveness

OAKVILLE, ON – September 15, 2010 – Drawing on nearly two decades of exceptional client service and project management experience, Balgord Software Solutions is pleased to announce the creation of Affinity NFP, a professional knowledge firm dedicated to the nonprofit sector.

“We have had the pleasure of working with many organizations in the nonprofit sector over the last several years,” said Annette Balgord, Affinity NFP’s principal and founder of Balgord Software Solutions. “Through these relationships, we realized that nonprofit organizations appreciate tighter personal connections, which resonated so well with our team. Interestingly too, our client satisfaction ratings are consistently highest with our nonprofit clients. We formed Affinity NFP to facilitate these connections and provide services that help nonprofits fulfill their missions.”

Affinity NFP’s commitment to nonprofits is evident through their participation in industry events and associations. Charity Village, Canada’s premier website dedicated to the nonprofit sector, selected Affinity NFP to write an article entitled “15 Ways to Improve Your Online Fundraising.” The article gives practical advice and ideas to nonprofits to take advantage of online fundraising opportunities. “We are honoured to contribute to Charity Village and congratulate them on their 15-year anniversary,” said Annette. Affinity NFP is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and has participated in the annual Congress conference the last four years.
