CiviCRM is an open source CRM built by a community of contributors and supporters, and coordinated by the Core Team. CiviCRM is web-based software used by a diverse range of organisations, particularly not-for-profit organizations (nonprofits and civic sector organizations). CiviCRM offers a complete feature set out of the box and can integrate with your website.
CiviCRM is created and used by a global community of tens of thousands of individuals and organisations. Our vision is that 'all organisations – regardless of their size, budget, or focus – have access to an amazing CRM to engage their contacts and achieve their missions'. Our roadmap outlines the shorter term goals we are implementing to acheive our vision.
At the center of our community is a Core Team of staff that are employed to co-ordinate and provide leadership for the project, and to serve our users and service providers. Many of the organisations involved with CiviCRM choose to become members and partners with us. By doing so they help to secure our financial stability and their investment in CiviCRM - you can join them.
There are many different ways to get involved with CiviCRM. Our community guidelines aim to help people to get involved with our community, understand how we work together, and what we expect of each other.
Created by contributors around the world, CiviCRM is, at its heart, built to impact the world. As open source software, CiviCRM is made freely available for use and improvement, serving over 10,546 whose missions collectively impact and improve the world in which we live. A key measure of our success will always be the social good that CiviCRM generates, and the stories that we hear from organizations that are doing amazing and innovative things with CiviCRM.
That all organizations – regardless of their size, budget, or focus – have access to an amazing CRM to engage their contacts and achieve their missions; that they own their data and their code; and that they can modify and extend their CRM without restriction.
