Organizers Database (ODB)

Organizer's Database (for Windows). Note: I of course use FileMaker Pro, but this website has a lot of good info on using or creating a database. Good way to get started, if you don't use FileMaker, the Cadillac of database programs. See:

Does your nonprofit need to manage contacts and contributions without making a huge investment of money or time? You’ve come to the right place. Organizers Database (ODB) costs nothing to download, runs on any Windows computer, and is easy enough for everyone on your staff to learn.

ODB was designed by a nonprofit for nonprofits, and includes features you won't find anywhere else. With a single click, you can copy a list of emails, look up a zip code, or even split up an address into component parts. It is simple to generate labels, print thank yous, or identify expiring members. You can track interests and demographics using custom codes effortlessly.

Other features include:

* over 190 customization settings
* networkable on multiple computers
* dozens of shortcuts for data entry
* integration with Google and Mapquest
* HTML-editable payment reports
* ability to handle lists of 100,000 records
