Work with the Nonprofit Center
We are always looking for talented speakers, consultants, and nonprofit authorities and experts to facilitate trainings, workshops, and other special events. If you have a specific topic that you feel would be beneficial for nonprofits in Northeast Florida to hear, please reach out. You can contact Callan Brown at CBrown@NonprofitCtr.org.
RFP for CRM/Member Database
The Nonprofit Center currently uses a custom built, membership database application. Though the database was purpose built for the needs of the Nonprofit center, there has been a significant amount of growth in the sector and in the role of the Nonprofit Center as a community resource and the database has reached capacity as far flexibility, integration and capacity given the number of programs, events and members managed by the Nonprofit Center. Customization to meet the changing needs of the organization is nearly impossible and staff have adapted by relying on external resources, such as Excel to effectively manage their workloads. We are in the process of transitioning away from the database.
From a functional standpoint, the organization facilitates a number of initiatives, each with the goal of enhancing the strength of the nonprofit sector. The specific needs of these initiatives must be captured and integrated into a whole organization data strategy, supported by an adaptable, flexible and expandable data system.
