TntMPD is a free software that helps you manage your relationships with your donors. I highly recommend TntMPD to manage your names, addresses, email addresses, birthdays and anniversaries. For those of you not keeping track of ministry partners, TntMPD is still a great contact management tool.
Just to give you that little nudge to start using TntMPD, I’ll try to think of everything I use it for. I used other software for over 15 years, but I would not go back. TntMPD does all that the other (pricey) software did and actually does more. It’s easy to manage my database of almost 700 names!
- keep a task list of who needs a phone call, letter, etc.
- receive automatic tasks for thank you notes when new gifts come in or if I have not written a thank you for over a year
- track fund appeal efforts
- keep a history of appointments, phone calls, emails, etc.
- receive address changes from Campus Crusade’s Donor Services
- merge information into Word and Excel (also CSV files) for personalized letters and envelopes
- easily group your contacts into subsets (see more)
- receive a download of donations from Campus Crusade (NOTE: many other mission agencies, too, are using TntMPD)
- view helpful reports and graphs about our donors
- easily send birthday and anniversary cards and more
- keep track of referrals and pledges
- keep track of subscriptions and gifts we have given our donors
- send merged or group emails through Outlook (also other eMail platforms)
- and more
TntMPD has all the information you need to start using it online. Don’t worry f you already have your names and addresses in another file, follow these directions to import your names to TntMPD from Excel or Word or from Outlook or a Text file. Since TntMPD uses Window, go to this link if you are using a MAC.
Once you have basic information, you can gather more personal information. (See this upcoming post.)
As of this writing, TntMPD is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Thai.

I have used TntMPD for almost two-years and love it. It has made Partnership Development much easier. I have submitted a suggestion, but in the mean time how do you track the Birthdays of kids of Major Donors?
Second question, I also use and love Daysprings.com, is the premium membership worth the cost?
God is Good! All the Time!
Saw you on the TNTMPD community. 🙂
Mark Davis wrote an add-on for kids, but I don’t believe it tracks birthdays. Contact Mark by going to https://www.tntware.com/tntmpd/downloads/p/4470.aspx
In the children field I write Rob-Sherry (Amy 6/91, Beth 11/94, Steven 5/99), Emily- (Meghan 3/87), ?
Translated this means, Rob is the oldest son married to Sherry. Their kids and mmyy birthdays follow in parentheses. Emily is the second daughter, divorced or widowed with one daughter, Meghan. (maybe use Emily-d. or w. for divorced or widowed and/or use Emily-[his name]). The question marks mean I don’t know the third child’s name.
For grand-kids I might just put (6 grand-kids).
Thanks, I like your system, but I want/need some way to remind me of upcoming Birthdays.
BTW — this is a nice web site, thanks for your work in making this possible.
May YHWH richly bless you
Thanks for the kudos, Ken. I am enjoying putting e4e together as I have time. Any ideas to make the site better are welcome.
Try asking on the TntMPD community forum about linking. I know Access will link to a table in another Access database or in Excel. If you have the Access version of your TntMPD database linking to your own children’s birthdays’ database, maybe you could just check your children’s database once a month. I’ve only tried linking two databases once a long time ago, so I would not be the one to ask.
I’ll be interested in what you find out. I have not tracked our donors’ kids and grandkids as well as I would have liked.
Maybe someone else knows about good eGreeting Card options. Some I see aren’t quality enough in my book.
