By another format, I meant something other than a database. Thanks for your 
answer; I'll either have to learn how to do the database or turn it over to 
someone else.

I also heard from another subscriber to use a tool that will do this & to 
check out http://civicrm.org/. Checked it out but I think it's somewhat more 
than what's needed for the fund raiser. Thanks for your answer though.
