Caldera Forms CiviCRM (CFC) for Donations and Membership

Tadpole has been working with Andrei Mondoc, the developer of CFC, to extend the availability of processors to support memberships. Since memberships typically use Price Sets, this work also allows for Donations that use Price Sets and Line Items within a contribution page.

Chase the Music gives children battling critical conditions love, hope, strength and joy. We do this with original music - composed and performed just for them.

The impact of Chase the Music programs begins with the child. The children (that we write and perform for) are undergoing situations that no child should. The gift of a personal commissioned piece of music is like no other. It's unique and created just for that child. Artists are closely aligned with the child to facilitate the creation of truly meaningful music. This alignment...

  • Do you want to restrict registration to certain events to logged in members only but still have other events open to the public? If the answer to the above question is yes, then this extension is for you. This extension allows you to set a flag to any event so registration is restricted to those that have a current membership.

The Civi Summit was a great event - full of lots of nice surprises. One that stands out for me was that what started out as some wishful thinking - namely having the ability to provide on-page tours/tutorials - ended up with us being able to beta test a 'proof of concept' before we left.

While some amongst us (ahem) were sampling the whiskey and fine IPAs late in the evening along to the strumming of the musically-able folk, others remained focussed on their laptops - and in Coleman's case this meant getting us a working prototype of a tour/tutorial system for civi pages.

We called it a Governance Summit because there was a lot of interest in governance. Regardless, this was fundamentally a “Community Summit” where members of the community could work together to improve CiviCRM as a whole. This post is a recap of much of the work that took place at the summit. 

Since a lot of this writing is already, errr, written up elsewhere, let’s do it in...
