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.
Managing data of party members and everything else related to political party. I've chosen CiviCRM because it is Open Source, it has many features and modules, it can be customized, it can be installed on any kind of servers or OSs, and it's powered by 3 major CMS systems. Yep, translation and localization were a major factor.
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!
Working as a part of GMCVO Databases I implement CiviCRM and support local organisations with their installs. The diverse range of clients we have is a testament to how adaptable
and flexible CiviCRM is to meet the needs of so many organisations.
A lot of our clients are small grass-roots organisations that run entirely on volunteers. They often don’t have the budgets to pay for bespoke systems and CiviCRM offers a robust and adaptable system that is affordable too.
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!
CiviCRM is making a huge difference to how we operate and process our interactions with volunteers, donors, service users and supporters. We work across all modules and are seeing increasing contact and reducing time-intensive processes, whilst all the time improving relationships.
