Keela joins Aplos to serve nonprofits with a fully integrated technology platform

The Keela Team • Jun 04, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that Keela has been acquired by Aplos, a best-in-class accounting system designed for nonprofits. With Aplos’ recent acquisition of Raisely, a best-in-class fundraising tool, and now Keela, we are uniting to pioneer the first integrated cloud platform for nonprofits, equipped with a suite of tools for accounting, fundraising, and CRM. 

Together, we are on a mission to build the first fully integrated cloud platform dedicated to nonprofits—a platform that offers high-quality, fully integrated technologies across essential use cases for nonprofits: accounting, fundraising, and CRM.

How Aplos, Keela, and Raisely Are Raising the Bar for Nonprofits

Aplos has joined forces with Keela and Raisely to pioneer the first integrated cloud platform for nonprofits, offering a comprehensive suite of tools for accounting, fundraising, and CRM. Each tool was chosen for its exceptional capabilities and commitment to serving nonprofits. Our collective mission is to streamline nonprofit management by providing top-tier tools, eliminating the need to juggle multiple platforms.

Our collective mission goes beyond mere integration. We aim to create a system that genuinely adds value to nonprofits. The sector has often been let down by compromised service standards when platforms are integrated or investments fail to meet their needs. We are doing things differently. With our combined in-depth understanding of nonprofits and insights into the shortcomings of other platforms, we are crafting a system that prioritizes the nonprofit experience. We recognize the daily operational needs, the importance of seamless system connections, and the necessity of meeting these needs while fostering innovation to help nonprofits optimize their operations.

The voices and insights of nonprofits have been integral to the development of Keela, as well as Aplos,and Raisely, and this commitment to understanding and addressing nonprofit needs is a core value that unites all three companies. As we build toward the future, we remain steadfast in integrating nonprofit feedback into our platform, ensuring a system that not only adds substantial value but also drives profound impact within the NPO sector.
