Non-profits and other charity organizations need all the help they can get, administratively speaking. That’s why it’s great to see something like what the folks at OpenPetra have put together. Flexible and customizable, it helps volunteers and non-profit agencies get the management tasks out of the way and focus on what’s really important: the cause at hand.
OpenPetra has six customizable modules, including contact management, accounting, personnel management, event and conference management, financial management (specific to non-profits), and user accounts. If you are running a charity or non-profit org and you need help keeping everything straight, then you should definitely give this a look.
The history behind the development of the OpenPetra project is also interesting, as they started out as a closed source software app written in .Net. They realized that open sourcing the code and building a community around the project was something that would increase its chances of success, and this is something they’re currently working very hard towards.
OpenPetra helps those who help others, and for that we salute them. Jump over to the OpenPetra POTM page to learn more about this fascinating team and all they do, or if you’d like to be a part of the excitement and enthusiasm for making the world a better place.
