ABCD Easy.

We see a transformational opportunity for small non-profits who are poised to grow their impact. Transitioning from grassroots groups to robust organizations is complex work, and resources for internal supports can be hard to come by.

ABCD Easy is our way of saying, we see you. We want to help.

Why ABCD Easy?

You’re running on hand-written sticky notes, spreadsheets and documents. Some of them are on the desktop PC donated by your founder six years ago – oh god, please don’t let it crash… Others are on Google Docs – wait, is it Docs or Drive? Or are we on Dropbox now? Anybody got the password? My version disappeared.

This was fine when you first started. But you’re poised to grow – your programs have been successful, you are hiring staff, and talking with institutional funders. You recognize you need a new system. You want to have more faith in the accuracy of your data. But database platforms are costly in time and in money. You apply for an organizational development grant, but the amount requested is too high compared to your annual budget. What can you do?

We want to help. Each year, we will invite 5 small Canadian not-profits to a full-service ABCD experience, for a fraction of the price.

The software itself is already free. It is part of the public domain – you already own it. With ABCD Easy, we will work with you to help you get the most out of the platform. If selected, you will get access to our “Standard” implementation package with a subsidy that covers more than 70% of your cost. You will also be eligible for shared hosting and maintenance services with others in your annual cohort.

Here’s what implementation support includes:

  • Data strategy consultation

  • ABCD setup and configuration

  • Custom form setup

  • Training of staff and volunteers to use ABCD

Are You Eligible?

To help non-profit organizations self-identify for this opportunity, we have implemented some eligibility boundaries:

  • Need: Revenue under $150,000/year

  • Capacity: Able to designate one or more internal champions responsible to learn and utilize the system

  • Potential: Have a track record of successful programs or projects, but lack the means to demonstrate impact
