CO3- Members calls for help


We have had a request within our member network for guidance relating to the development of a communications strategy for a third sector organisation using a communications agency. The comms strategy will also extend to improving the members organisations public profile.

We would encourage any members who can share their own experiences with any communications agencies or any direct contacts they may have within this sector.



CRM databases

We would ask any members who have experience in managing or changing CRM databases to get in touch with CO3 using the details below.  Your input would be appreciated within the members network if you could provide any insight, feedback or guidance on the wider topic of CRM systems but also specifically:

·         eTapestry

·         Raisers Edge

·         Chariteer

·         Microsoft Dynamics

·         Salesforce

·         Zoho

The CRM system will be used to manage training participants, volunteers and donor lists, with an emphasis primarily on user friendliness.


If you have any information or would like to feature an issue you may be having on our call for help section please email jonny@co3.bz
