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.
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.
The CiviCRM community provides knowledge, skills and development. It enables me to help where I can, such as with translations. CiviCRM is an amazing piece of software and in combination with Drupal provides great possiblities.
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!
