A Glimmer Of Hope Case Study

“Thanks to vConstruct we have significantly improved the way we work. The vConstruct team is great!”

- Stephanie Fast, CFO, A Glimmer of Hope


About A Glimmer of Hope

A Glimmer of Hope is a non-profit organization that lifts women and children out of extreme poverty in rural Ethiopia. Glimmer’s entrepreneurial model provides clean water, schools, health clinics and micro-finance loans to one village at a time. Focusing only on rural Ethiopia, the non-profit holistically integrates projects that address the basic needs of those living in each community.


With growing public awareness, A Glimmer of Hope faced an increasing need to automate their donor and donation management systems. Manual processes were consuming too much staff time. Visibility across the organization—from incoming donations to completed projects—was poor. The prime need was for a user-friendly software application linking donors to donations and projects. It was essential for Glimmer staff to better manage donor relationships by producing accurate donation pipeline reports and projections.

A Glimmer of Hope partnered with vConstruct because of its extensive NetSuite knowledge. vConstruct’s consultants have wide-ranging experience delivering projects of all sizes using the firm’s Blueprint methodology.

  • Ability to quickly tell donors how and where donations are being used
