Drupal + CiviCRM: a delicious recipe for FoodLab Detroit

FoodLab Detroit homepageOne of the biggest projects we worked on in 2014 was the new web presence and membership management system for FoodLab Detroit, "a diverse community of food businesses and allies working to make good food a sustainable reality for all Detroiters." With Drupal and CiviCRM as the main ingredients, we were able to whip up a robust, content-rich platform that provides valuable resources to FoodLab's members and the wider Detroit community while also streamlining their administrative operations.

CiviCRM project launches for the Urban Justice Center and Planned Parenthood of Northern California

October was a busy month for the CiviCRM team at Palante, with two major project launches!

We launched a new CiviCRM donor management database for the Urban Justice Center. UJC has 108 staff within its 10 projects, and each project does its own fundraising. CiviCRM integrates with their website so that each project's donation page takes on the look and feel for that project, and donations are automatically categorized by project.  The central office staff can run reports across the entire organization, while individual projects can keep information about their donors private from one another.

We developed several exciting customizations for UJC, including "Contact Your NY Elected Official" functionality that makes use of freely available information to look up an elected official by address - no paid services needed!

This month we also launched a new education data collection database for Planned Parenthood of Northern California.  Educators have the ability to enter detailed information about their activities, and managers can review their work and run reports from one place.  Based on the database Palante built in 2011 for Planned Parenthood of New York City, we took the opportunity to rebuild the tool in CiviCRM for better reporting; improve the mobile interface; and allow users to enter multiple activities at a time.
