ISBA is an international non-profit society with members from all over the world. We have sections that represent different scientific areas and chapters that represent different regions of the world. Civi Member powers our membership system! We use CiviEvent for Conference and Workship registration, and utilize CiviPetition for creating new sections to our society through member petitions. We are epxloring how CiviGrants can be used to track our travel awards and look forward to features for integrating accounting and finance. As a growing non-profit CiviCRM plays a major role in managing our membership system!
When implementing CiviCRM in our organisation, we got for the first time a complete overview of all our contacts, mailing lists, partners, members in one tool. You do not need to be a database genius to use it on a daily basis, and my colleagues have embraced the tool due to the easy and user-friendly interface. It meets all our needs as a contact management system and as a mail manager. I am sure that we will start using more of its components in the future.
I have been involved in the CiviCRM community for over 5 years, and enjoy implementing and programming CiviCRM for a variety of non-profits. I have been amazed at the rapid pace of innovation delivered with each new release, and CiviCRM's flexibility in being able to accommodate a variety of requirements. I have learned a lot about CiviCRM by participating in CiviCon, online forums, and CiviCRM book sprint.
CiviCRM provides Future First with world-class database software for absolutely free. We use it to store well over 100,000 contacts with no signs of slowing. CiviCRM is so customisable that we can implement cool features without needing to reinvent the wheel each time.
If you like empowering charities in a free and open way then you are going to love Civi!
I work for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. We switched to CiviCRM so that we could be sure that our membership data stays safe, secure, and private. Now we have control over our CRM and can customize it to work for our needs.
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.
I work for a nonprofit that helps other nonprofits with web and graphic design, and CiviCRM is a major help to the small-medium groups we typically work with who need high-end CRM functionality that is deeply embedded in their websites.
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!
