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:

ODB is already in use at hundreds of organizations, so each new user benefits from the changes and tips suggested by others. OC also provides affordable support options if you need immediate help. If you’re a developer, your contributions to this open source program (and its cross platform successor) are welcome. You can have discussions with others in the community forums.
Please note that the ODB project is a community effort. We depend on volunteer help and contributions from both individuals and organizations to make improvements. You can donate time or funds at this page.

Dear ODB Users:
March 31: I have some good news and some bad news:
October 17: Attached is a copy of the handouts for the workshop at the GUT-X grassroots use of technology event today at Northeastern University.
April 30: An updated version of ODB 1.1 is available today.
March 24: We now estimate that there are about 1000 groups actively using ODB. Perhaps half of these are using an ODB version that is at least 20 months old
