Tendenci - The Enterprise Open Source AMS (Association Management Software) is an all-in-one software solution and one of the most robust AMS systems available today, not to mention "Top-of-the-line". Why? Because we've had a lot of time to listen to our clients and the needs of the community from all industries and this has helped us guide the product. After all, it was first written in 2001 by Founder Ed Schipul who dedicated years of research to understand the complex needs of associations. Since then, the application has been carefully curated. Features have both been added and removed as the needs of associations and non-profits change over time. To be honest, Tendenci has the capability to organize the entire Roman Empire. All of it. So, invest in YOU today with Tendenci - The Open Source Association Management Software built specifically for the needs of nonprofits and associations.

Below is a partial list of the many MANY modules included with Tendenci - The Open Source AMS. Yes, it is a CMS (Content Management System) for associations and nonprofits (NPOs), and YES, it's also a TRULY open source, robust, mature software to manage your association.

But before that, we have some important news for you! Especially if English is not your primary language. We are happy to say that Tendenci is multilingual and designed to serve the world with more than 70+ languages. Help translate Tendenci
