Yoga for the People (YFP) is a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado. They believe that all people should have access to the benefits of a consistent yoga practice, and one of our primary operations is pairing volunteer yoga teachers with host-sites.
As a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization, Yoga for the People relies on the generosity of the community to meet its mission. They could not afford the services of a consultant to setup a CRM.
Cividesk offered their help as part of their Giving Back program. This program is targeted at ‘volunteer-run non-profit organizations providing free and secular services to the underprivileged’, and provides these organizations with pro-bono solution design, professional hosting, software customizations, technical support or training services. As we did meet the criteria of their Giving Back program, Cividesk supported us through the installation and the configuration of a CiviCRM instance to be used by YFP and offers continued hosting.
Stephanie Russell, Board Member, says: “When I first joined the YFP board, I recognized that the simple data processing software that we were using to manually track our volunteers and sites was not able to fully meet our organization's needs. Since we have received generous support from Cividesk, we are now able to track sites, volunteers, contributions, write surveys, manage event registration, and provide robust reporting which allows us to make data-informed decisions. Import and set up were a breeze, and the customer service is superb!”
