Why Join the ebase Community?
ebase.org operates on the theory that nonprofit users can support each other’s use of technology more effectively and economically than relying on commercial vendors for support.
The benefits of membership are:
1. You gain access to the power of many minds:
• through the forums and email lists.
• through the accumulated knowledge since 2000 of tips and tricks in the Knowledgebase
• training workshops
• list of consultants
2. You have the opportunity to help yourself by helping others. Often answering someone else’s question helps you learn!
3. Your participation through membership contributions and online involvement provides critical keys to improving one of your organization’s valuable tools – ebase.
That this ebase community support website exists is a testament to the constructive dynamic that exists when people work together to solve common problems. ebase.org continues to move forward through the goodwill and effort of ebase members: since 2005, ebase.org has been a self-supporting, all-volunteer enterprise.
More importantly, ebase users rely on each other to help resolve technical problems via the email lists, local ebase user group meetings, and informal contacts.
Since 2005 the operational costs to maintain ebase.org have been kept low which has enabled ebase.org to operate almost entirely through membership contributions and small donations.
Our goal is to continue to sustain the effort to develop software for nonprofits, by nonprofits, through a membership-based approach.
