NPO Builder Toolkit: civiCRM for Joomla! - A Complete, Integrated Solution

E-mail Print

Empower your grassroots efforts with the sophisticated fundraising and donor database capabilities of large organizations at a fraction of the cost of site licenses for systems like Convio, Blackbaud, Sage, or Raiser's Edge. Start with all of the core tools you need, in one system. We integrate a professionally designed Web site running on the Joomla! open source content management system (CMS) with the award winning civiCRM constituent relationship management (CRM) system so you can not only grow the "friends" of your organization but also turn them into donors toward your cause.

With civiCRM for Joomla!, attendees can register for your events and pay any fees online. You can track their participation and stay in contact with them via email blasts and newsletters. Measure your success by generating meaningful reports illustrating your online contributions data in various formats. All you need to add is your own content, and we can even do that for you as an added service.
