Choosing a CMS for Your Non-Profit
If you've ever had to select a content management system for your non-profit's website, you know that the process is fraught with questions. A big player in your industry went with Drupal - does that make it right for you? (Maybe). You've heard great things about eZ Publish - is it worth the ramp-up cost? (Possibly). Should you write your own CMS in-house? (Almost definitely not). What about integration with external tools? Fundraising? AMS? Etc.?
Join us as we talk about these and other issues facing non-profit decision makers as they navigate the often-confusing world of CMS choices. This is a core conversation where you'll get a chance to ask questions, share insights, and even learn something. Led by 2 industry leaders from Beaconfire, a consulting firm that has implemented more than a dozen CMS solutions exclusively for non-profits, this conversation will leave you armed and ready the next time you face this decision...which may be sooner than you think.
