Tadpole Collective helped ArtsW move away from expensive proprietary software systems used for tracking their contacts, mailings, donations, and membership. We replaced their original WordPress website with a custom theme, integrated CiviCRM, and added custom functionality to allow their members (artists and arts organizations) to share original content, add events to the public calendar, post announcements, and much more.

ArtsW was already using WordPress for website content management when they approached Tadpole Collective, but they were fast outgrowing some of the features that had been hard-coded into the original site’s design. They also wanted to simplify their internal processes; keeping data in sync between half a dozen databases to track memberships, event registration, donations, and outreach activities has become unwieldy and burdensome to their small staff.
Because some of their data around membership, event registration, etc., was being collected via the ArtsW website, it fell to the webmaster to coordinate the flow of data and keep it in synch with all the disparate, internal systems used for tracking and reporting these activities . She was introduced to CiviCRM for WordPress at WordCamp NYC 2012, via a presentation by Tadpole founder Dana Skallman.
