I have used Civi in past jobs, and I often recommend it to clients and organizations that I volunteer with. So often it's the most affordable and user-friendly way to track organizational contacts and related activities.
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.
I find the engagement with our community of users to be intellectually stimulating
and rewarding. Seeing folks with expertise in a particular area step up and contribute their time and ideas to help improve the product is quite exciting. Every time I hear about a new interesting organization starting to use CiviCRM, I get a renewed sense of excitement about our work. The range of civic sector organizations currently using the software is quite amazing to me - from large international advocacy organizations to local performing arts troupes. I also really enjoy interacting with our international community - building friendships and getting to share culture (food, music, humor ....) with colleagues on every continent.
Its great to work on a project that has a profound impact on non profits. I am very excited about the work we do on CiviCRM which involves building on each other's ideas to create best of breed solutions for non profits. The fact that CiviCRM is an open source project with an amazing community and dedicated developers is an icing on the cake.
CiviCRM is more than code. I recommend CiviCRM with confidence to my clients because I know they will be able to find quality support and documentation and a project that is receptive to users' needs.
Please check-out our extension for managing volunteers and tell us how well it suits your needs. https://civicrm.org/extensions/civivolunteer
