CiviRules is live and doing effective automation!

Two weeks ago, Wednesday June 10th, MAF Norway started to use CiviRules on their live production site.
We did set up one single rule, which starting from that day, saves us for approximately 1 hour work pr. day. That is almost 15% of one persons workload throughout the year!

Amnesty International Flanders (AIVL) have been using CiviCRM for a couple of years now, initially with memberships mainly but lately more and more as a fundraising tool. They have implemented CiviBanking for their incoming bank transactions and are now in the process of testing CiviSepa for their direct debits. We (as CiviCooP) are part of their CiviCRM family and work together with them to support their processes in the best way we can, making the most of CiviCRM.

Over the pond, we brits love our underdogs, we love the fighting spirit that the underdog has, and the belief that they may just make it. Partly its down to our lives being a collection of "Nice try" and "It wont happen for you" and us not wanting to celebrate anything too soon, in the insane belief that it might not happen. Well thats my excuse for not putting up this blog post any sooner.

I am Tahir Ramzan, pursuing Masters in Computer Science at Virtual University of Pakistan. I am working on refunds, partial refunds and partial payments development for CiviCRM. Parvez Saleh and Joe Murray are mentoring this project.

Refunds and Partial Refunds:

Often, we need to tackle situation where one needs to make partial or full refunds. After this project users will be able to make refunds with friendly user interface and proper database records.

Concerns:

What (recurring) Receipting options work for you?

We get a steady trickle of requests regarding changes to what receipts go out when someone signs up for a regular payment. We use an extension to help with this 'norecurreceipt'. The extension basically prevents the is_email_receipt from being set to ON on the civicrm_contribution_recur table - thus allowing the inital mail to go out but not the subsequent ones.

I discussed this some time ago with Dave & he suggested I post a blog to see where other people are at with recurring receipting.

See where your fundraising rates stand!

Compare your fundraising success last year with other CiviCRM users and small- to medium-sized nonprofits.  Third Space Studios have been conducting the Individual Donor Benchmark Survey for three years, helping smaller nonprofits compare their aggregate fundraising information to get a fix on how successful they are raising money from individual donors.

Odoo is an open source accounting software. With much more features than only accounting, such as warehouse management, project management, HR management etc.

CiviCRM is an open source software for non-profit and is great in membership management, donor management etc.

For one of our clients we have been working in integrating both CiviCRM and Odoo where Odoo is leading in the financial data and CiviCRM is leading in the contact and membership data.

How to track what marketing effort is most efficient for recruiting donors or members?

All NGOs would dream, hope and maybe pray to expand their database of donors with new ones. Hopefully your NGO is doing more than just dreaming, but actually spending some money trying to recruit new donors or members.

Do you use CiviCRM for contributions, pledges, and related financial data? Does your organization use the financial reports in CiviCRM? Does your organization export data from CiviCRM to your general ledger? Or do you want to start doing some of these things?  If so, your input is needed on CiviAccounts.  (You do not need to be a CPA to give input, but having a general understanding of how CiviCRM financial areas work currently is helpful)
