Content-management systems for nonprofits


A project called CiviCRM (Civic Constituent Relationship Management) is a substantial open-source project aimed at helping nonprofits and governments connect with members and constituents.

CiviCRM is basically an extension of, or plugin to, other content-management systems. Four plugins exist [2012-September]:
  • for Drupal 7 (seems to be the primary extension and is a bit ahead of other versions)
  • for Drupal 6 (not supported)
  • for Joomla!
  • for WordPress (seems to be the most recently developed).
See the CiviCRM download page for more info.

The Drupal and Joomla plugins can be integrated with MailChimp.
