The problem needing to be solved

We currently have 5000 - 6000 contacts in 4 different locations including mailchimp, eventbrite, squarespace. We would like a central CRM that is easy to manage and update. We currently do not have budget to pay for a subscription service so we would be open to considering a low tech version such as an excel spreadsheet or free CRM service depending on data limits. We dont have a dedicated communications staff member so the system needs to be simple and usable for up to 6 people.

Responsibilities of the online volunteering project

Essential for CRM solution

  • Simple and easy for all staff to use
  • Clear priorities for types of updates/record keeping link to our engagement strategy (to be refined)

Thoroughly research the options in accordance with the provided list of essential features (above) and provide advice to us before decision is made

Help us to set it up and migrate contacts

The benefit to you, the volunteer

This is a small but incredibly important project for us. We've been wanting a CRM for over 6 months with no capacity or capabilitiy to get it done well. We are a passionate team of change makers who really need support in the back office and communications side of organisation development, so please consider helping us!

Your part will ensure we engage with our community in a more meaningful way, and we can get grow our audience and ultimately increase our impact
