CiviCRM is a powerful tool that could be really useful for many non-profits in Mexico.
Unfortunately the community is very small in my country. I hope that in the next years the community expands around Latin America.
In New York City we have been fortunate to have had in person user group meetings. It has been useful to CiviCRM see case studies presented by companies and individuals. To learn about how people use and customize CiviCRM for different types of organizations. It is also useful to meet in person other implementers, developers and users to work with on professional and volunteer projects. I think it is also important and fulfilling to try to share knowledge and resources with others to help sustain the community and project. I also run a non-profit Man Up Campaign to stop violence against women. To have the insights into civiCRM helps us make progress on our mission!
We produce custom civiCRM/Drupal solutions for professional organizations and societies to satisfy their membership management needs. In its standard configuration, civiCRM provides a great deal of functionality and its integration with Drupal is outstanding.
We are also active in extending civiCRM with custom extension modules which are in development at our Github account(https://github.com/awasson)
We use CiviCRM for our Membership and Supporters system. We're committed to using Open Source solutions and are keen to expand the variety and success of our member recruitment and fundraising efforts.
City Bible Forum is an Australian not-for-profit Christian organisation. We need to communicate effectively with our constituents, and CiviCRM gives us a comprehensive set of tools for managing relationships. Interestingly, we often find that new features are being added just as our need for those features is becoming apparent. It's the right fit for us.
From fundraising websites which really connect you with your donors to essential tools for care organisations to manage their data, Civi has allowed us to do some amazing things for our clients. It's such a flexible platform and has such a great community which we're proud to be a part of.
We are committed to open source as an effective means of building shared community resources and CiviCRM is an awesome, exciting and inspiring demonstration of the effectiveness of this approach. We are grateful for all the work done so far in enabling us to have this incredible resource made affordable and available, and looking forward to participating in the CiviCRM community.
