Organization for Transformative Works

A Solution that allows Volunteers Worldwide to Work Together
 

 The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW), a nonprofit run by and for fans to provide access to and preserve the history of fan work and fan cultures. OTW is an all-volunteer organization that is based entirely online. Volunteers from around the world work together via e-mail, chat, and cloud-based project management software, in most cases without ever meeting in person.

Cividesk recently spoke with Kristen Murphy, the membership data specialist for OTW’s Development and Membership committee who shared her experience using CiviCRM.

A Little Help

A new member of our Giving Back Program
 

A Little Help is a volunteer based nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado. We started in 2005 as Washington Park Cares when a group of retirees recognized the desire of many seniors in the area to stay in their own homes and contribute to their respective communities. These neighbors based their model on the national village movement, where neighbors coordinate and deliver essential services within their community to allow elders to remain in their homes. In 2007,  we incorporated as a 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing older adults with non-medical services essential to maintaining active, productive lives in their own homes within community. 

A Little Help

A Little Help is a nonprofit organization that connects neighbors across ages to enhance lives and strengthen our communities. Our mission is simple: connecting neighbors to help seniors thrive. A Little Help fosters community by connecting our elders with services and resources as they navigate the unknowns of aging and build meaningful connections with neighbors of all ages.

CiviDay Denver 2016 was a great success

For the fourth year in a row, Denver has had a growing and thriving CiviDay co-organized by Cividesk and Teaming 4 Technology. We welcomed nearly 45 attendees for an all-day event in the beautiful venue at the Mile High United Way.

Both Cividesk and Upleaf presented sessions in the morning. Then after lunch we continued full speed ahead in the afternoon with 2 different training sessions for new users and intermediate users and a co-working session where Cividesk and Upleaf teamed up as experts in the field to answer any questions related to CiviCRM.

Mile High Youth Corps

How CiviCRM helped strengthen our Individual Giving
 

The Mile High Youth Corps (MHYC) located in Denver, Colorado was founded in the tradition of the Civilian Conservation Corps from the 1930’s.  The organization helps young people make a difference in the community and their own lives, through service opportunities focused on conservation.

Cividesk recently spoke with Tory Pearson, the Annual Giving and Events coordinator about using CiviCRM to help manage and increase their donations and organize their annual fundraising event.
