Community Giving

Cividesk gives back

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.

Chase the Music: A new member of our Giving Back program

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.

Partners in open source: Contributing back to CiviCRM

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.

Milestone Celebration: We've reached 100 loans on Kiva!

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!

Customize the Order of Appearance for Relationship Types

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 very helpful functionality that displays the relationships of a contact by order of preference. This allows you to customize which relationship types should be seen at the top based on your chosen priorities. This is particularly useful if a contact has a large amount of relationships so that you can ensure that the most important ones are visible first.

Every Season is the Season of Giving

In the U.S., we are approaching what is generally called the Season of Giving, referring to the months of November and December where we recognize as Americans the celebration of Thanksgiving and then any and all holiday celebrations in December for the melting pot of beliefs that we hold dear as a country. At Cividesk, however, there is no definitive time for the Season of Giving. Every season, every month and every day is approached as an opportunity to give back in some way to work toward making the world a better place.
