A Technological Step Forward

The NCF recently procured and received training on a new cloud based fundraising and database management system, eTapestry, specifically designed for small nonprofits with limited IT infrastructure. The NCF owes a huge debt of gratitude to Molly Pickral and her group of folks that maintained the NCF database over the past 10 or so years. It was time for our technology to match the growth of our organization.

The NCF is currently in the process of bringing the new system on-line with supporter and alumni data that already existed in the NCF database and expects to have its full capabilities available by the end of September 2014. One of the new capabilities will be the opportunity for supporters to update their information on-line through the NCF website. eTapestry will aid the NCF in engaging Camp’s supporters, enhance the security of personal and NCF data, increase our communication abilities, and provide solid supporter/alumni data for planning NCF and NCI activities. If you have experience with eTapestry or other on-line fundraising tools and would like to help implement the new system, please let Joe Irby, NCF Development Chair, know. His contact information is
