Tendenci is an open-source association management system offering membership management, events management, online fundraising, content management and job board modules. It can be used by associations, educational institutions, healthcare organizations, community foundations and nonprofits of all sizes.
Tendenci’s online membership platform lets administrators manage data and communicate with constituents, as well as set membership levels, control pricing, track communications and customize which benefits and content members have access.
Within the events management module, administrators can create and manage events, including location and directions, ticket pricing, images and speaker bios. Events are automatically added to the online calendar, and attendees can register and pay online. Reporting functions allow organizers to see who is registered.
Tendenci’s donation module lets nonprofits manage donor data and online fundraising campaigns. Donors can make payments online and automatically receive emailed confirmation receipts. This product can also capture donor contact information and website engagement data, which is recorded in the database and can be used to personalize donor communications.

The software has uncommon capabilities to assist with the operation of associations and other nonprofit organizations, such as online events management and promotion, membership management, donation management, online directories, and job boards, among others. I also use it to power the website for my small business and have a number of client websites that are powered by Tendenci. We get quick response to service requests as well.
They are constantly improving the software and have a lot of things that can distract from a laser focus.
If control of your website is important to you, Tendenci is an open source solution that enables any organization to contribute by building on the base code if you want something that isn't currently offered. If comparing to Wordpress, just remember that Tendenci is built for associations and nonprofits, and it has unique capabilities built in that other platforms lack. The CMS is very easy to use, which makes it crazy simple to keep your organization's online identity fresh.
