Giving back is a cornerstone of our company culture, and we proudly support many charitable and humanitarian organizations with pro-bono or reduced-cost services.
If you represent a volunteer-run non-profit organization providing free and secular services to the underprivileged, please contact us so we can determine the best way to support your organization - whether this is solution design, professional hosting, software customization, technical support or training for your staff.
Have you ever wanted to make the member price option available in an event registration form only to good standing members (ie. New, Current or Grace status)? This way, only these members can take advantage of a discounted price as one of their exclusive benefits!
Cividesk developed this new feature so the member rate for an event is only displayed when the logged-in user has a good standing membership.
Have you ever wondered if you could add multiple activities for a single participant to an event? Cividesk has added a functionality that will do just that!
Search for a participant following your desired criteria and in the bulk actions you should be able to see the "Add activity" option for your participant. It's that easy!
Cividesk is proud to be an active contributor to the CiviCRM community since 2011. We contribute to the project every month with new code, code fixes, by hosting events and more.
Most recently, Cividesk added a new functionality which gives CiviCRM users the ability to print a contribution receipt directly from the User Dashboard. Until now, only the invoice could be printed from the Dashboard.
Cividesk strongly advocates for community participation and collaboration to work on maintaining continued progress and improvement of CiviCRM. We pride ourselves on being involved in several aspects of ongoing projects and needs. 2018 has been an eventful year and we are happy to report that we have contributed to CiviCRM in a variety of ways:
1. Report and fix bugs
At Cividesk, we have a wide range of customers who use different parts of the software for their specific needs. It also means we get to work with a vast range of functionality that the CRM provides. Reporting bugs is a way to help developers and make it easier for them to repair the issue.

Chase the Music gives children battling critical conditions love, hope, strength and joy. We do this with original music - composed and performed just for them.
The impact of Chase the Music programs begins with the child. The children (that we write and perform for) are undergoing situations that no child should. The gift of a personal commissioned piece of music is like no other. It's unique and created just for that child. Artists are closely aligned with the child to facilitate the creation of truly meaningful music. This alignment gets in their heads and they are changed by the experience.
DrupalCamp Colorado is a three day event centered on knowledge sharing and learning how to build, manage and launch ambitious digital experiences. This year, Cividesk was invited to present CiviCRM and it's integration with Drupal to an audience of web developers and site administrators.
Cividesk values the opportunity to support open source initiatives, partly because giving back is a cornerstone of our company culture, but also because we all benefit so much from open source software. Therefore, it is important to us to advocate for more community participation and collaboration to work on maintaining and improving CiviCRM. So, is it worth it to contribute time and effort to CiviCRM? Yes. 100%. And absolutely. Not only does it benefit us, but it also benefits our clients and so many other nonprofits worldwide.
It is with great pride that we can announce that we have reached 100 micro-loans provided to deserving initiatives worldwide through Kiva! We are thrilled at the positive impact that this project has provided to so many worthy companies and individuals who are otherwise underserved and underfunded. Knowing that Cividesk has a hand in the success of entrepreneurs who simply want to make their world a better place by offering products or services to their community is a great feeling. We have reached 100 loans, but we won't stop there!
Coming back from the Calgary CiviCamp and Sprint, I started reflecting on this fantastic experience and what it takes to create a CiviCRM community. This prompted me to share some thoughts about what makes these events so positive and memorable for all attendees and specifically our end-users.
