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.


If you are reading this, it's because YOU care about YOUR association's mission and vision. And about the people who are members.

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. 

Tendenci is the strongest and most secure web-based software platform for NPO’s globally. We are offering you a software that is completely open-source, fully customizable and highly integrated, a software that offers high security and a platform that makes you rethink your membership management strategy.

Tendenci on the global market share


 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.

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!
