3 What is free and open source software (FOSS)? Free and Open source software is software that is developed collaboratively by developers across the globe. The software itself is available at little or no cost. The source code (the human-readable version of the software) is distributed with the executable form, giving users of the software the freedom to modify, adapt and improve the software to meet their needs. What makes Free and open source software special? The basic idea behind open source is very simple: when programmers can read, redistribute, and modify the source code for a piece of software, the software evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing. At first sight, one might think that this seemingly uncoordinated method of software development would result in chaos, but on the contrary, open source software is well-known for its quality, reliability and security compared with proprietary software. (If open source software is so great,) why haven't we heard of this before? Until recently, FOSS was mostly developed by programmers in their spare time. They were doing what they loved writing software for themselves and sharing it with their fellow programmers. Consequently, the software was never marketed, but remained a "best kept secret" in the academic and technical communities. (In fact, the majority of the Internet is built on open source technologies, as the Internet initially grew out of academic institutions). Contrast this with proprietary software companies who spend a large portion of their budgets on advertising and marketing. Is open source software free? Yes and no. In the monetary sense, open source software is free in that users may freely copy and distribute the software (see the open source definition for more detail). However, a total IT solution consists of hardware, software and services such as support and training. It is important to take all of these into account when discussing the cost of software. The free concept in open source software refers more specifically to freedom: free as in "free speech" or "free market", rather than "free beer". OSS gives users the freedom to use and modify the software to suit their own needs. For non-technical users, this means the freedom from being locked into a single provider for software fixes, upgrades, support and other services. What can open source software do for the home user? There are open source software equivalents for most (if not all) home users' IT

4 requirements, from document processing (office productivity suites) to dialup, and Web browsing functionality, to games, multimedia and graphics applications. Since open source software may be freely used, copied and redistributed, it offers a very affordable IT solution to home users. Add to that the fact that open source software is often more stable and less buggy than many of its proprietary counterparts... What are you waiting for? Why is FOSS relevant to NGOs? If NGOs don't subscribe to the principles of sharing freely, reuse and waste-minimization, then who will? If NGOs take the easy way out and end up on the side of a global monopoly, then words and deeds don't match. 'Freedom' is something NGOs always talk about, in whatever form. In the software world, this is already a reality. The possibility exists; are we ready to take a little extra trouble (the initial learning curve) in opting for it? Because NGOs need quality, stable software. Because NGOs are even more talent-rich, resource-poor than most in the Third World. Because Free Software works out reasonably priced both in the short and long term. Because Free Software creates local jobs and multiplies local skills. Because Free Software is transparent enough for you to (i) learn it, if you have the technical background (ii) make custom changes in the manner you wish to, or pay others to do this for you (iii) enable both you and your staff to learn at a much more deeper, rather than superficial level. Because Free Software is an ethical choice -- not one of convenience. NGOs receive and disseminate much information. It helps to be able to access info (in digital format) without having to (i) break the law (ii) spend money to purchase applications to 'read' the information. Use of Free software enables that. Because free software empowers computer users and encourages them to cooperate. What is CiviCRM? OpenNGO is an open source project to create a set of web-based tools designed to meet the needs of small U.S. nonprofit organizations and non-governmental organizations across the globe. CiviCRM is the first release of the OpenNGO project to create relationship management software for the nonprofit and nongovernmental sectors. CiviCRM stores information on the universe of people associated with a nonprofit organization and on their interactions ( s, donations, petitions, events, etc.).

5 The technology is designed to be lightweight, extensible, core functionality that can both stand-alone as a simple contact management application and be easily integrated with a broad variety of technologies and applications (Donation Processing, Fundraising, Advocacy/GOTV, Event Management, CivicSpace, Advokit, etc.) Nonprofits maintain relationships many types of constituents. They track and solicit donors, recruit volunteers, track clients, and maintain relationships with the public for advocacy purposes. They send out newsletters and invite people to events. CiviCRM enables organizations to maintain all this information in a single database, creating efficiencies and new opportunities for nonprofits to better communicate and benefit from relationships with their constituents. CiviCRM core features include: Store information on Contacts Individuals, Organizations, Households and the relationships among them. Store multiple Locations (phone, address, etc.) for each contact record. Internationalization. Support CRM information for multiple countries. Support custom, user-defined fields for each contact record. Support arbitrary, user-defined groups of contacts. Versioning and rollback for all data. Contact level view/edit permissions. more information at What is PhpMyBibli?
