Managing and securing our members' personal information is critical to our mission.  Since 2007, we have been proud to partner with CiviCRM, the leading OpenSource CRM, to help us accomplish that goal.  Why this project?  CiviCRM is designed for non-profits by people who understand non-profits.  The tool encompasses almost everything we do.  Possibly more importantly though, CiviCRM software is used by over 11,000 organizations world-wide.  So when we make a change in our software or pay for a developer to improve the product, those 11,000 organizations also benefit.  Rather then sending our development funding to a giant corporation, we use it to benefit us and many other non-profits world-wide.  We think our donors and members would agree that's a better use of the funds they entrust to us!
