World-class service

We’re fiercely committed to helping our customers succeed.

Pricing plans are changing on May 30, 2016

Existing customers paying on a monthly basis who are not on a current pricing plan will be automatically upgraded to the Leader plan and gain access to the current version of NationBuilder on May 30, 2016.

If nation admins do nothing, the next bill received on or after May 30 will reflect Leader plan pricing based on the number of people in your database. All previous pricing plans are being deprecated. You can save money by paying annually. You can gain access to more features and gain strategic support by upgrading to the Organization plan. 

Customers on contracts will not be automatically moved to the Leader plan until their contracts expire. If you would like access to the new features, it is possible to upgrade to a plan now. Nations created after September 21, 2015 are not affected.


This upgrade includes new features

Our biggest upgrade ever includes major new features that represent the beginning of a whole new way to use NationBuilder. They’ll align your entire team around priorities for leading people to action:
