I chose to learn to use CiviCRM to learn how to help NPOs :) And because it seems to be a meeting point and a continuity of my values, my skills, and what I think we should develop for the next step of our humanity.
CiviCRM is a cost-effective CRM made especially for nonprofits. Since the purpose of Drishtant is to help nonprofits to leverage technology for deeper social impact, we offer a hosted version of CiviCRM as a great way to manage relationships.
I continue to choose CiviCRM because it is open source and geared toward non-profit organizations. It meets both my CRM and advocacy functionality needs, without forcing forcing me to synch two different systems. And it does not force my non-profit users to think in sales terms (leads, opportunities, etc.). I find the CiviCRM community knowledgeable and responsive, and I like being part of a development community where its members want to share information.
Managing data of party members and everything else related to political party. I've chosen CiviCRM because it is Open Source, it has many features and modules, it can be customized, it can be installed on any kind of servers or OSs, and it's powered by 3 major CMS systems. Yep, translation and localization were a major factor.
CiviCRM makes it possible for non-profit organizations, even those with a limited budget, to forge strong relationships with their constituents, thus bringing them closer to fulfilling their mission. Over the years, we have seen CiviCRM develop and evolve in a very responsive way to the needs of the marketplace.
