Crescendo Reaches New Milestone with Cloud-Based Software
Crescendo's most popular planned and major gift illustration software, CresPro, is now cloud-based. With the new CresPro online software, Crescendo offers gift planners and major gift officers greater flexibility and unparalleled access to the tools necessary to successfully do their job and close more gifts.
We plan to encourage 2,000 midsize and large nonprofits to raise a trillion dollars by 2030. Our marketing program is called BoomerTrillion, which includes four cloud software applications and a four-part education program.
Watch our video to learn how your charity can get started with building a pipeline of gifts to capture its share of the BoomerTrillion.

As the nation's largest planned giving services provider, Crescendo Interactive is proud to work with these organizations among many others:
University of Cincinnati Foundation
"With Crescendo's marketing, we are able to reach more alumni and friends than ever before, in a very cost effective way, to provide meaningful gift planning messages. Visits to our gift planning website have increased, responses to our marketing campaigns are providing valuable leads and our Provide and Protect seminars have resulted in multi-million dollar planned gift conversations. Since starting to use Crescendo's GiftLegacy tools and services in the fall of 2014, we have booked over $92 million in planned gifts!"
Tammy received Crescendo's 2017 eMarketer of the Year award.
University of New Hampshire
"The University of New Hampshire Foundation's Office of Gift Planning uses all that Crescendo has to offer. We've had tremendous success with the donor and advisor enewsletters. The integrated emarketing and print marketing have helped us send a cohesive message to our donors. We've also found Crescendo's client services team to go above and beyond, and their support has been critical to the success and implementation of all of their products."
Theresa was named Crescendo's 2016 Emarketer of the Year, and since implementing Crescendo's GiftLegacy tools and services beginning in 2014, has raised over $52 million in planned gifts.
Texas A&M Foundation
“A total of $1.1 billion in planned gifts have been documented in the past 17 years. Many of these givers have been inspired by the planned gifting marketing they have received from us over the years. That marketing is based on the Crescendo donor-friendly marketing and emarketing philosophy and materials. We give Crescendo much credit for the success we have enjoyed.”
"GiftLegacy has become an integral part of Baylor University's Gift Planning marketing program since we began our relationship with Crescendo Interactive in 2009. In the last five fiscal years, 2013-2017, Baylor has documented 226 new planned gifts for approximately $139 million and realized 162 estate distributions of over $54 million. Baylor appreciates and highly values the tools, services and support provided by Crescendo's friendly and professional staff."
