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 involved in the CiviCRM community for over 5 years, and enjoy implementing and programming CiviCRM for a variety of non-profits. I have been amazed at the rapid pace of innovation delivered with each new release, and CiviCRM's flexibility in being able to accommodate a variety of requirements. I have learned a lot about CiviCRM by participating in CiviCon, online forums, and CiviCRM book sprint.
Germany has a large number of Nonprofit-Organisations. So far, most of them (have to) rely on commercial CRM-Software. We would like to provide an alternative by consulting organisations on deploying and using CiviCRM in an efficient way.
CiviCRM brings continuity and coordination into our ever-growing company and database. By tracking the activities of our constituents, we can better serve them. By better serving our constituents, we can focus more on our mission: Developing young people into magnificent human beings through participation in the performing arts.
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!
It is super important for non-profits, advocacy and related groups to take charge of their destiny. Having control of your data is a good start. The crowd-sourced nature of an open source project in so in line with the co-operation and principles of most non-profits
CiviCRM is a project that strives to make the above possible. It is FREE as in kittens.
Greenleaf Advancement provides hosting, implementations, training, and support for CiviCRM. We take great pride in our role in helping nonprofits advance their mission. Combining our passions for fundraising and technology, we are focused on helping organizations use CiviCRM to connect with their supporters and improve their fundraising results. Doing this as part of a vibrant open source community is in keeping with our belief that success overall only matters if we don't leave others behind.
CiviCRM allows us to bring all benefits and capabilities of a large commercial CRM and
donor management system to medium and large non-profits at a fraction of the cost. CiviCRM also allows smaller non-profits to benefit from an integrated solution for donor management, events, bulk email, etc. substantially increasing their effectiveness as compared to managing a variety of nonintegrated software and spreadsheets. Thanks to a strong CiviCRM community, CiviCRM’s functionality continues to advance and CiviCRM’s market continues to grow rapidly.
The Women's Fund of Santa Barbara (WFSB) is a collective donor group that enables women to combine their charitable donations into significant grants focused on the critical needs of women, children and families in Santa Barbara. The organization is run exclusively by a team of volunteers. Cividesk spoke with Mary Garton, Susan Robeck and Julie Capritto about making the transition to CiviCRM and how this solution has changed the way they manage their organization.
Cividesk will be offering beginner-level CiviCRM training classes in July. Each two-hour training session focuses in depth on one topic (Contacts, Membership, Events and Contributions). Class size is kept small to allow for Q&A.

The campaign module already provides an easy to use interface to manage simple campaigns and link contributions, activities, etc. to them. However, analyzing the outcome or planning more complex campaigns is currently not possible in CiviCRM, but these tools are essential to a strategic fundraising approach.

Hi! I am Utkarsh Sharma, a third year undergraduate student studying Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay. I am working on the project Email Preview Cluster for CiviCRM and this blogpost talks about the same. I’m being mentored by Tim Otten for this project.
It’s June and the rare blasts of sunshine mean it’s summer for us Brits - and so the Wimbledon tennis-fest is nearly upon us. If you don’t already have court tickets you can expect to pay a small fortune for them, or if all that Murray-mania is not your thing, then don’t despair! We have something even better to offer you: centre-court tickets for the highlight of the UK Civi year - CiviCon London 2015.
Each month from June - August we will be featuring blog posts from this year's Google Summer of Code students. This will help keep all of you up-to-date on these great projects and also give you an opportunity to follow along and get more involved in ones that you connect with. Click the links below to check in on July's featured projects:
We urge you to read through each of these and comment directly on the blog to provide feedback to the student or to locate their GSoC thread in the CiviCRM forum.
