Your Tendenci Low-Cost / Free Options
On a Budget? We get it.Tendenci fully supports Associations and Non-profits!
Hi! If you’re on this page, it means you are trying to make the world a better place. Like us. And you need an AMS that scales and is a top of the line association management system. An AMS that includes a CMS (content management system for Associations). Likely you are on a budget and legit can’t afford to pay a company to build it from scratch. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered!
Serious question: What differentiates Tendenci from all other AMS?
- Well, what other MAJOR AMS can you self deploy on the servers of your choice? In the data center of your choice? In the country of your choice? With the encryption and firewall restrictions of YOUR CHOICE. That’s just the beauty of open source.
- The price starts at zero. It. Is. Fully. Open Source. Here is a list of alternatives to Tendenci AMS (hint: almost all aren't open).
- We take security very serious. We also understand there are no “perfect” or “completely secure” systems. But we do more than just try. Transparency is the key to Open Source AMS - no in-betweens. So there's that.
- Languages? Ok! You can translate your AMS into the language of your choice. Although, you might find someone has already done this for you - 70+ languages of them.
Use Tendenci for FREE!
You could have a local developer set up a site for you if you wanted. The Tendenci platform can be downloaded at https://github.com/tendenci/tendenci- no gimmicks. You have the voluntary decision to move to your own server in the course of time - even if you decide to host with us - nothing can be taken away from you. Ever. We can even push backups to your own Amazon bucket every night. Again, that is the power of Open Source.

What exactly is Open Source?
Open Source means that anyone can download a full copy of the software for free and customize it to their needs. Most software is purchased (or licensed) and while you can modify it to your preferences, you can’t rewrite the basic functionality of the product. Many developers want the freedom to modify a product to their individual tastes, getting into the actual code.
And many associations that do host in the tendenci-cloud-like knowing they can export ALL of their data at any time. That they can switch to self-hosting. They aren't "trapped" - freedom.
