Since 2002, Organizers' Collaborative (OC) has provided nonprofits with a Windows based membership software program, based initially on a system we developed for our own use. We named this software program the Organizers Database (ODB).
ODB allows even tiny, technologically challenged community groups to computerize key tasks like managing donor lists, generating mass emails, processing donations and thank you notes, and tracking their volunteers.
In 2006 OC released ODB 1.0 which adds note tracking, pledge tracking, custom reports, and ability to handle much larger lists.
Ease of set-up, rapid customizability, and availability of source code have made ODB a breakthrough program for US-based nonprofits.
The software is available at its own web site:
By November 0f 2006, 750 groups had signed up for the community forums on this site and the number of ODB downloads had exceeded 9,000 over a 12 month period.
You are welcome to try ODB! We recommend that pay for support to get the most out of the software. Details can be found at the ODB web site.
