100 Gardens - CRM Database Software Selection

Project Description

100 Gardens is looking for a suitable CRM to help manage their donors, campaigns, events and track project management. 100 Gardens is currently operating without a CRM. They utilize Snowball as their fundraising/text to give software, QuickBooks for financial data and utilize G suite/Google docs to track project data. They have currently budgeted $900/yr for a software solution.

A CRM Application Selection for the organization that defines the specifics about their current technology needs, processes and procedures. This CRM application selection will help them identify the best CRM/software solution to help 100 Gardens with their efficiency and productivity. This project is to review their business process, initiate setup and define software requirements to select the application that will best fit their needs.
