Daxko is a company founded in 1998 by Tom Patterson which develops software used by non-profit organizations to manage memberships, operations and accounting. Its platform is used at approximately one third of all YMCA branches in the United States. Formerly housed in the Lakeshore Park Plaza building at 2204 Lakeshore Drive, since 2011 Daxko's headquarters offices have been located in the University Park Place building at 600 University Park Place in Homewood.

Dave Gray was named CEO of the company in 2003. The company took on $7.75 million in venture capital in 2008 in order to expand its operations to the general non-profit sector. Daxko has been honored repeatedly as one of Birmingham's fastest-growing firms and one of the regions' best places to work. In 2009 the company was one of seven firms profiled in Fortune Small Business' "Seven Great Places to Work".

In January 2011 Daxko acquired Triangle 2 Partners of Tampa, Florida, adding its services to a division called "Daxko T2 Consulting". Two years later, it acquired Active Life Apps of North Carolina. In December 2015 the company acquired CSI Software of Houston, Texas.

GI Partners of San Francisco, California purchased a majority stake in Daxko in September 2016 along with three seats on the company's board of directors. Daxko subsequently acquired Zen Planner of Highlands Ranch, Colorado in 2017, Club Automation of Chicago, Illinois in 2018, and TennisSource of Fort Collins, Colorado in 2019. In early 2020 it acquired PlayerSpace of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina; UpLaunch of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; and Motionsoft of Rockville, Maryland.

Ron Lamb succeeded Dave Gray as CEO in 2018, and is based in Littleton, Colorado. Daxko also has offices in Deerfield, Illinois and Sunrise Beach, Missouri.
