Data Conversion Process:
Once you have been approved for a donation of Sumac Silver, you will need to convert your data. Likely, what you have now are lists of names and addresses, email distribution lists, donation history, and lots of other types of information in spreadsheets, databases, and emails lists.
Data conversion is a process of cleaning up and moving this data into your new database. Sumac offers a service that takes care of data conversion for you for a very reasonable rate, or you can do it yourself.
