Campaign Engine 4.0


The simplest, most comprehensive management software for Democratic and progressive campaigns, activists, and not-for-profit organizations.

Campaign Engine is not just a campaign web site, but a platform for all the work of your campaign.

Feature Details

Constituent Relationship Management Made Easy. Campaign Engine automatically generates records of everything your supporters do — when they make contributions, sign up for events, volunteer, sign petitions, send or receive Tell a Friend messages, or simply ask to be added to your mailing list — so you have a combined view of all your supporter activity.

Accept Contributions Automatically. Your site can process credit cards for contributions, event tickets, or memberships. Or you can enter check, cash, or in-kind contributions. All transactions are tagged with useful data and routed to the account you choose. And we take no commission on contributions, so your cost is the lowest possible.

Organize Events. Let supporters sign up for fundraisers or free events. Instead of bringing a check and filling out paperwork at the door, they pay in advance — and all you do on event day is check them off the list.

Stay in Touch with Your Supporters. Anyone in your database can be reached with the built-in email broadcast package. Segment your lists any way you want to reach people with just the right message. Then review statistics on the results to see which approach works best. And keep notes on your staff's contacts with supporters through phone calls, meetings, events, or any categories you define.

Collect the Data You Need. With our unique Form Designer, you can customize volunteer, email signup, contribution, or event forms with any combination of standard and custom fields, in the order you choose.

Generate Custom Reports Anytime. Put together call lists or contribution histories on the fly with our report generator, which saves your data in PDF format for easy printing or emailing. And the report engine can be extended to any report layout you need, for the specific requirements of your data.

Rally the Troops with Calls to Action. Create an unlimited number of different Tell a Friend messages for your supporters to email. Or set up petitions, to learn about your supporters' interests and collect their information. Track which initiatives are getting the greatest response, and who among your site visitors is participating.

Keep Your Web Site Current. In a fast-moving campaign, the last thing you need is for your site to be hard to update. We’ve partnered with Six Apart Ltd., makers of the internationally popular Movable Type, to integrate their elegant content management system into Campaign Engine. Which means you can spend more time working on the message, not the medium.

Sort Your Data Your Way. Add custom fields to user records to track any detail. Use the powerful built-in search to segment your data by any criteria — geographically, by contributions, by mailing lists, or according to any custom field.

Import and Export What You Want. Bring in your existing user records and contribution histories in Excel format, so you can begin building your data. And export anything back into Excel, for mail merges, FEC filings, or any other reason. For maximum flexibility, the custom results of any search can be exported.

Built for Your Team, Not for Techies. Most importantly, Campaign Engine’s ease of use means your regular staff can administer it, without needing technical expertise or expensive support contracts. Of course, we’re also here to help, with free technical support included with every site.

Pricing for Your Budget. Campaign Engine is the most affordable campaign management software in its class. Click here for pricing information.

New Features Added Regularly, for Free. We deliver feature updates to Campaign Engine on a regular basis — about every two weeks. As long as you use Campaign Engine for your site, you’ll get all these features at no extra charge.

More Compatible. Unlike the competition, our software is platform-independent, so you can use it on Mac, Windows, or Linux. It’s also compatible with modern browsers like Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Don’t Take Our Word for It. There are many products available today for political campaigns, but none as complete, flexible, and friendly as Campaign Engine from Media Mezcla LLC. Request a free demo today and see for yourself.
