CiviCRM provides more functionality out of the box and for free than the largest and most popular fundraising packages provide even after you've purchased all of their add-on modules. Get an overview of CiviCRM core functionality and capabilities in this introduction to CiviCRM. Lots of time for Q&A.

Why I hate CiviCRM

CiviCRM is a world class CRM solution that can stand toe to toe with the like of Salesforce, Raisers Edge, SugarCRM, etc... I know this because I have used many of the competitors and now make a living implementing CiviCRM. That said there are days when even I have to ask "Why is it working like this?"
