The creation and development of ABCD: A Better Community Database, originated from KRD Consulting Group. The team of consultants at KRD, having fully immersed themselves into the world of non-profits, in many different capacities, saw the need for a data management for non-profits that was smart, simple, and adaptable.

The idea was to democratize non-profit data. To create a world where every non-profit has access to smart, affordable and efficient program management and reporting, where outputs can be expressed in terms of larger impact and where databases help you work smarter, not harder. Through the cohesive and effective organization of data, organizations can create a collective learning environment which improves adaptability, responsiveness and shared awareness of impact.

ABCD Values

We envision non-profit organizations that are generative members of broader communities, engaging their clients, participants, partners, and funders in collective contribution to social good, based on smart data and good learning practices.

Our commitment is to provide simple, robust tools that strengthen learning teams, and to promote the spirit of collective learning for the common good.

We always put community first, acting from a commitment to foster trust, reciprocity and belonging.
