Why we are Unique in Evaluating CRM For Nonprofits
We are unique in the online software advice options. We are not paid by the vendors to write about, recommend, or provide software leads. Rather, we provide education and services to help elevate our clients above the marketing noise and assist them in selecting the software tools they need based on their goals, needs, and budget.
