Rachel Schipul - President of Tendenci - The Open Source AMS - expresses: "Nonprofits and NGO's are the backbone of society. Without these self-governing bodies in place, and without the freedom to act in the interests of humankind, the world would struggle to find a balance between the demands of the individual and value of a strong community network.
Tendenci addresses this need to bring individuals together to make a meaningful impact on society. Our goal is to provide a platform that facilitates the dual bottom-line of organizations, generating revenue so that you can advance your mission."
