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.
The community around CiviCRM is international, multicultural, friendly, sometime opinionated but always respectful and welcoming new ideas. It is a real pleasure to interact with these people - but see for yourself: dive in and ask your first question on the forums!
We thoroughly appreciate CiviCRM as a software and this community, and when helping our customers implement and make the best of CiviCRM we are always looking for ways to contribute back.
I have been working with CiviCRM (Drupal and Wordpress), for around 7 years, in various organisations around Australia, from national to the local. I feel it's the perfect not-for-profit contact database and fundraising option. Always up for chat about it all.
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!
The CiviCRM community is a fantastic resource of developers, end users and system implementors. We believe whole heartedly in the power of open source communities such as CiviCRM to make things happen that wouldn't come into being in a purely profit-driven setting.
Palante Tech works with social justice organizations on a tight budget to be more effective through technology. CiviCRM allows us to provide a high-quality low-cost database for community organizing, donor and membership management.
