Is your organization struggling to move beyond spreadsheets for managing your data? Do you manage your organization's data in multiple tools, like Eventbrite, Mailchimp, etc.? Has your organization progressed to using a proprietary crm tool, but still frustrated with the features and pricing?
CiviCRM is an open source, highly customizable CRM, with no licensing or subscription fees. Join us for a webinar to learn how nonprofits of all sizes are using CiviCRM for sending newsletters and email appeals, fundraising, events, membership management, volunteers and more.
Roshani Kothari, Director of Strategy & Engagement at Ginkgo Street Labs, will share case studies and stories about how nonprofits are using CiviCRM successfully. We will also have special guest presenter, Dave Greenberg, a founding member of the CiviCRM Core Team, who will talk about the vision for CiviCRM. In a recent blog post, he shared, “As we approach our 10th year, I continue to believe that providing open source software solutions for the challenges faced by nonprofits and NGOs around the world is critically important. We want to make sure that organizations can own their own data AND can collaborate on the continual improvements to their tools, rather than incurring the costs of continually re-inventing the wheel with custom and proprietary software. We recently spent some time as a community clarifying our vision for CiviCRM. He added, "A key measure of our success will always be the social good that CiviCRM generates, and the stories that we hear from organizations that are doing amazing and innovative things with CiviCRM."
