Auxilia’s comprehensive Donor Management System software bridges the gap between nonprofits and donors to elevate fundraising and support worthy causes.

  • Why Auxilia?
  • What We Do
  • Our Goal

Auxilia was created to help community driven nonprofit organizations with donor outreach, engagement, and retention.

Auxilia’s all in one software allows nonprofits to manage donors, track donations, send communications, create fundraising events, and increase social media presence.

Our goal is to help nonprofits raise more donation dollars for their cause, all while saving them time and money.


It’s our mission to drive change for those driving change in our world. To do that, we needed to create donor management software that was simple and intuitive, but comprehensive enough to promote maximum efficiencies.


Auxilia was founded by a group of nonprofit veterans with a collective heart for bettering their community. Inspired by local philanthropists daily, we aim to help more people by equipping nonprofits with the tools needed to make a difference.


At Auxilia, we never stop learning – because the world never stops developing. We utilize the latest industry insights and modern technology to ensure our donor software constantly works to advance your mission.


We’re not afraid to blaze the trail. As pioneers in the industry, we offer helpful guidance, modern tools and efficient donor management processes that help nonprofits become leaders, too.
