When implementing CiviCRM in our organisation, we got for the first time a complete overview of all our contacts, mailing lists, partners, members in one tool. You do not need to be a database genius to use it on a daily basis, and my colleagues have embraced the tool due to the easy and user-friendly interface. It meets all our needs as a contact management system and as a mail manager. I am sure that we will start using more of its components in the future.
I have been working with CiviCRM (Drupal and Wordpress), for around 7 years, in various organisations around Australia, from national to the local. I feel it's the perfect not-for-profit contact database and fundraising option. Always up for chat about it all.
CiviCRM is a great solution for non-profits looking to integrate their fundraising, event, membership, grant and email management systems. JMA Consulting is a leader in developing extensions and core contributions for CiviCRM.
We help many not for profits implement CiviCRM through consultancy, training, configuration and custom development. Many of them come from a painful world of old Access databases, multiple spreadsheets and even paper. It's really satisfying to
help people move on with a system that's so much in tune with their own ethics of sharing and collaboration. We also 'eat our own dog food' and use Civi in-house for our client records because we love the flexibility and control it gives us.
For us it's important to share code and advice with other members of the community when we can because we know we get it back in help at other times. The community really is awesome and one of the friendliest and undaunting I've come across. We appreciate the huge value of the software to us and our clients so we try to contribute back and make it even better.
Being part of the CiviCRM community is really something to shout about! Not only is CiviCRM an amazing software package, its designed for organisations that make a difference in the world. We help non-profits across the UK gain control of their data through the power of CiviCRM.
It is without a doubt the best piece of software I've ever worked with, and I'm constantly discovering cool new features. More recently I've been working on CiviMobile as part of a project for my course at University. I'm really looking forward to seeing this being used by organisations across the globe.
The CiviCRM community is a fantastic resource of developers, end users and system implementors. We believe whole heartedly in the power of open source communities such as CiviCRM to make things happen that wouldn't come into being in a purely profit-driven setting.
We are just migrating and implementing a CiviCrm-solution for our charity! EE@Work and Circle Interactive are helping us! We are dreaming big with CiviCRM and we love when technology enables us to be effective and growing!
CiviCRM is helping us serve member-based community organizing groups across the
U.S. to keep better track of their events, fundraising, and membership data. It's helping our community to aim higher in terms of what kind of questions they should be asking and what kind of data they should be collecting. We chose CiviCRM because it's the best all-around tool to do what our groups need, AND because it's open source.
Implemented CiviCRM in 2011 now use it as a complete CRM solution for the organisation. Looking to extend its use in the next 12 months though the use of Civi PCP;s and Civi HR and deeper web integration.

Whether you're just getting started with customizing CiviCRM or you already think you know everything about it, I invite you to spend a few minutes playing with the new API Explorer in 4.6. You'll be glad you did.
Can you help Fuzion take the Drupal 8 integration module that was developed as part of 2014 Google Summer of Code and get it working with the most recent version of Drupal 8 and publicly available for testing?
iATS Payments is a proud supporter of CiviCRM and all of the great work that it empowers. We believe that giving back as a technology partner is the right thing to do so CiviCRM and all of the organizations that use it can continue to have meaningful impact.

CRM Data plans refer to documenting agreements on representation, format, definition and structuring of data. Current and future CiviCRM users can utilise it to increase efficiency, knowledge creation and interoperability with other systems.
In order to optimise and future-proof the CRM system, the data structures, in addition to the data itself, need a good re-work. There are two main steps to the process:
It’s a tad belated I know, but in reality it’s never too late to say thank you for supporting this incredible project. We made a push starting in October 2014 for both partner renewals and new partner additions and can now speak to the results. In the process we received quite a bit of feedback on how to improve the program, a central theme of which is to focus both CiviCRM and partners on growing the entire ecosystem. You’re going to hear this point a lot going forward, starting with a forthcoming post on the state of fundraising for CiviCRM.
