We recommend and use CiviCRM with most of our clients, and have since 2005. It's got a fantastic collection of functionality that fits the needs of non-profit organization communications, and the CiviCRM community of developers and users is growing, broad, vibrant and responsive.
The best part? When I describe to potential new converts how all of their constituent relations (donations, membership, mass emails, etc.) can be managed with a single integrated, configurable tool, I can hear an incredible yearning at the other end of the phone.
The community around CiviCRM is both welcoming and vibrant. CiviCRM as a software solution is a powerful and flexible data management solution for a vast array of nonprofit organizations ranging from the startup NGO to the established multi-million dollar foundation. In our daily work we are seeing more and more NPOs moving away from proprietary systems and single vendor SaaS solutions and embracing the open source community around CiviCRM. Organizations using CiviCRM love the extensibility and the freedoms that come with open source, freedom to choose hosting, freedom to choose project partners, and the freedom to re-use, re-purpose and re-deploy without paying extra.
Palante Tech works with social justice organizations on a tight budget to be more effective through technology. CiviCRM allows us to provide a high-quality low-cost database for community organizing, donor and membership management.
Our capacity organization manages a largely segmented contact list for bulk mailing, events, training, groups and donors.
We are helping other organizations gain advocacy capacities, managing constituency making, campaigns and petitions
Worked with CiviCRM as core team developer for more than 2 years. Now we are working as a team and providing service with CiviCRM installation, customization and training. One thing about CiviCRM community is that it's very healthy and really helpful. It's really great that i am part of this community and we want to grow this more and more . Also whatever the problems we are facing there is a solution on forums, or we will get the proper guidelines to solve the issues. Big salute to the CiviCRMcommunity :)
CiviCRM helps us help non profits to do fantastic things with their data.
Being closely involved with the developers and documentation team on a daily basis ensures that we can give our clients the best and most up to date advice on how they can use CiviCRM to meet their needs.
CiviCRM is one of the core offerings of our company. Remaining close to the CiviCRM community is important to us, as it keeps us close to new developments in the tool, and allows us to offer our feedback for new releases.
