Examples of our work

During the 10 years we have grown in the donations we receive, and number of patients we speak to, and the research projects that we now support. We pride ourselves in giving 93% of the money we raise to the three research projects we are supporting at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Mount Sinai Hospital.

In order to maintain this percentage we have not had to hire administrative staff and have relied on Salesforce Non Profit version to handle the management of our data. We, during a normal year receive close to 400 donations that require two letters to be sent for each donation.  Salesforce not only facilitates this effort but it has allowed us to spend more time with patients and less on administration.

 

We have a long history with UMCOM.  We were first introduced to UMCOM through our work at other United Methodist Organizations and asked to be on their inaugural National Web Ministry Advisory Board.  As members of the board, we helped shape how UMCOM would interact and provide training on Web Minsitry to the churches throughout the world.  

Through that involvement, Paul Keogan became the lead national web ministry trainer and for 3 years provided web ministry training to hundreds of churches across the US.

Later, UMCOM engaged us to help with other technology iniatives including the Imagine No Malaria project (INM).  UMCOM needed a high end donor and constituent management system that would allow them to mange this large and important global initiative.  Its current large commercial system could not do what UMCOM needed.   

We worked with the UMCOM team to choose CiviCRM and then implemented CiviCRM/Drupal and several advanced customizations and integrations.  Since going live, the CiviCRM has captured $10MM of donations.  In 2012, the effort was expanded to include registrations for "Bug" or "Skeeter" runs.  

A Future with Hope, came to us looking for a volunteer registration and management system to enable their Sandy relief efforts.  They were trying to use a recommended commercial system, but that system was not able to provide the services they needed.

We recommended a CiviCRM/Drupal solution to enable the multi-step volunteer process they needed.  We worked with their team to develop the business processes and them implemented the solution within a very tight time frame on and a limited budget.

Today, A Future with Hope, is using the system to:

  • Take volunteer inquiries
  • Take initial volunteer group registration, take down payments for accommodations, and accept volunteer dates
  • Take final group registration, take final payment, and take detailed individual volunteer information
  • Send individual and mass emails
  • Volunteer data management
  • Volunteer reporting  

We have partnered with the Baltimore-Washington Conference on many projects over the years providing a variety of strategic and implementation services as well as support and training. One of our first projects was building their first Drupal based website and helping them select a church management software. We have since helped them upgrade their website and assisted them with integrating it with other back end software to ensure single sign on capabilities.

Although primarily self sufficient, BWC still seeks our help solving their more difficult and complex  integration problems.

CMM came to us because of our knowledge in CiviCRM and Vanco Services (Vanco is a payment processor utilized by many faith based organizations).  

We were also able to provide CMM with a strategy for configuring CiviCRM and Drupal to best display their  giving/donation section  taking into account their dozens of mission workers, their church based audience, and their back-end finance needs.

CMM is a great partner for us because they had a very complete vision of what they wanted to do, a good understanding of technology, and a desire to learn.  We have been able to provide them with a variety of technical training for Drupal, CiviCRM, and CSS.  This training has enabled them to be self-sufficient so they can maintain most of their technology.
