CiviCRM Services

Our CiviCRM services

Relationships are built upon shared experiences. AGH Strategies helps nonprofits connect with supporters and track those connections. Using CiviCRM, organizations build and strengthen relationships with their constituents. We serve as partners through the whole process—design, implementation, training, and custom development—and provide spot support whenever needed. Our staff know the nonprofit sector from the inside—fundraising, programs, and advocacy—and know how CiviCRM can be implemented and extended to meet the needs of your organization and mission.
