CiviCRM: Software Built and Sustained by Community

March 26, 2014
Founded nearly over a decade ago, nonprofits today use CiviCRM for everything from fundraising and coordination of volunteers, to e-communications, event management, membership programs, and advocacy campaigns. CiviCRM has been translated by a globally distributed group of volunteers into over 20 languages, and the huge and growing CiviCRM community — now over 15,000 members strong — helps generate the software's development roadmap from the ground up. Despite having no marketing department, and a full-time “core team” of only six, CiviCRM is now used by more than 10,000 organizations around the world.
