For something straightforward, but tailored to Charity/NGO, I can't see
any reason not to use CiviCRM.

For more complicated, brain hurting, functionality... then I understand
why people go for SaaS (Salesforce), or M$ (Dynamics), but for
straightforward contact, campaign, donation blah management Civi does do
it (and the code isn't completely horrid any more).
