CiviCRM - Open Source Constituent Relationship Management
CiviCRM is a completely free (as in speech and beer) relationship management system designed for non-profits. The feature set is aimed at activism groups, non-profit organizations, and non-governmental organizations. It is designed to integrate seamlessly with either Joomla or Drupal, which are both free and open source content management systems.

Optional modules can be added for specific needs such as fund-raising, event registration, and more. Combined with the flexibility offered by Drupal or Joomla this is a free website platform that can meet the needs of even the largest organizations. There are reports of it managing a database of 7 million constituents, but it’s free and you could even run it on your DreamHost account!

A few of the non-profit organizations using CiviCRM are…

  1. Amnesty International

  2. Creative Commons

  3. Wikimedia Foundation

  4. Atlanta Audobon Society
