Thank and Steward Your Donors

Because we speed up gift processing time, you can speed up the process to steward and thank your donors. Organizations who use Aqubanc® say this helps them better nurture their donors for the next opportunity to give.


James Cowen has worked with for-profit and non-profit clients throughout North America and Northern Europe. During this time it was apparent that offline gifts were inefficiently processed and available solutions were outdated, overpriced and ineffective. This drove the founding of Aqubanc® and to build relationships with hardware, software, service and agency providers to make the resulting solutions affordable and reliable for nonprofits.

Aqubanc® has collaborated with Contact Innovations in modifying their remittance payment software to meet the stringent and broad needs of nonprofits. This collaboration is so comprehensive to make the entire process starting from system definition through installation, training and ongoing support direct and easy for each client. Concurrent with tailoring each nonprofit client’s system, Aqubanc® works with their agency on Solicitation Slips for acquisition, cultivation and acknowledgements to further enhance efficiencies.

Aqubanc® is a proud member of The Giving Institute.
