Member Management Software – 2019

September 5, 2019. U.S. charitable giving stagnated in 2018 amidst tax reform and stock market volatility. Nevertheless, PE-backed companies led the M&A charge with continued acquisition activity in the nonprofit & association software market. In particular, PE-backed payments consolidators have accelerating their acquisition activity in 2019.

MPG actively tracks the nonprofit & association software landscape and has been instrumental in strategic deals across the member engagement market. We’ve noticed a number of sustained drivers in H1 2019:

  • Charitable giving in the U.S. was flat in 2018 due to changes in tax incentives associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as well as stock market volatility
  • Vendors are increasingly incorporating data and analytics into their offerings in order to gain better donor/member insights and differentiate their products
  • Payments consolidators continue to experience strong M&A success in their quest to drive synergized payments profit, with acquisition cadence appearing to accelerate in 2019
