4/17/2012: Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) Software for Nonprofits
April 17, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm| FREE
Is your nonprofit struggling with many communication channels, people who play multiple roles, and lots of different places to keep track of all that information? Constituent Relationship Management, or CRM, is your system for holding it all together. Underpinned by a database and a set of integrated communication tools, your CRM can streamline your work; it can improve results of fundraising, advocacy and marketing efforts; and it can increase your impact.
Choosing the right CRM software for your nonprofit can be a daunting task. While one or two large corporations dominate the nonprofit software market, there are dozens of other good choices, and it can be hard to differentiate between all of them.
After participating in this web conference, you’ll have all the basic knowledge you need to assess return on investment for this type of technology, do some informed shopping, and feel confident in your decision.
- Know what a CRM is and how it can help you
- Understand key features to look for in CRM software for nonprofits

- Avoid common traps and mistakes in buying nonprofit software
- Know what to budget, and pay a fair price for the software and service
