Tendenci Community Cloud-based All-In-One Member Solution
Tendenci Community is our fully managed Cloud-based platform designed to save you time by providing an easy-to-use service for creating and hosting powerful, beautiful nonprofit websites using Tendenci, the only open-source AMS specifically created for nonprofits and associations.
Tendenci websites manage complex processes and track relationships and activity across your website, plus it provides online payment transaction integration for fee-based sales like memberships, events, and donations. This additional complexity requires a more powerful hosting platform than you'd typically need with a blog site such as WordPress.
You can design your Tendenci Community site from any web browser using a simple template-based system and with no vendor lock-in. If you ever need to extend beyond what Tendenci Community's basic packages include, you have several, flexible options to support your association's growth. You can add on performance Site Boosters, increase database storage, and add custom integrations. You can upgrade to Tendenci Enterprise or export your site content and take it to either a self-hosted Tendenci Open Source or a WordPress platform.
If you are reading this, it's because YOU care about YOUR association's mission and vision. And about the people who are members.
So you run an association, and it's quite complex? But you know that. You might be stuck using Excel spreadsheets or trapped in a proprietary solution that doesn't even let you download your own database or view the source code. We believe association management software should serve the membership, the board of directors, and the executive director of the association equally.
Associations are complex. Just the opening paragraph from Wikipedia makes your head spin with the implied complexity of any AMS system.
AMS, MMS, CRM for non-profits - we call them by different names. Sometimes it's membership management at a simpler level. Yet, every association that sustains eventually hits a level of complexity that goes beyond basic membership management.
The requirements grow in complexity and the members themselves have to participate in their own data management.
- hint: that's why Tendenci is Open Source and even hosted we do NOT charge based on named users. Just on the power of the server you need!
Here in the US Alexis du Tocqueville wrote about organizations in our society:
"Americans of all ages, all stations of life, and all types of disposition are forever forming associations… In democratic countries knowledge of how to combine is the mother of all other forms of knowledge; on its progress depends that of all the others".

Lastly, yes, Tendenci is a very large project with robust functionality. But it's still a great free or low-cost solution as an AMS for small associations too. You can easily disable the modules you don't need and keep it simple. The functionality will be there as your small association AMS needs to expand in the future! Payless (or self-host!) and get greater functionality. Rock on!
