Cividesk is proud to be an active contributor to the CiviCRM community since 2011. We contribute to the project every month with new code, code fixes, by hosting events and more.
Most recently, Cividesk added a very helpful functionality that displays the relationships of a contact by order of preference. This allows you to customize which relationship types should be seen at the top based on your chosen priorities. This is particularly useful if a contact has a large amount of relationships so that you can ensure that the most important ones are visible first.
Giving Back is a cornerstone of the Cividesk company culture. In addition to offering pro-bono services to qualifying organizations, we consistently fund loans for deserving and underserved small businesses and entrepreneurs across the globe via the Kiva initiative because we too believe that "Dreams are universal. Opportunity is not."
In the U.S., we are approaching what is generally called the Season of Giving, referring to the months of November and December where we recognize as Americans the celebration of Thanksgiving and then any and all holiday celebrations in December for the melting pot of beliefs that we hold dear as a country. At Cividesk, however, there is no definitive time for the Season of Giving. Every season, every month and every day is approached as an opportunity to give back in some way to work toward making the world a better place.

LYRIC is a small non-profit that is entirely managed by volunteer attorneys. Our mission is to teach youth how to safely exercise their Constitutional rights, and we do so by connecting with schools and community organizations and training volunteer attorneys to teach our curriculum to high schools students.
Ruta Civica (Civic Route) is a Mexican volunteer based organization working in civic education and promoting citizen participation in public affairs. Through different campaigns, our mission is to develop the involvement of citizens in the making of the Constitution and laws for Mexico City and its urban planning. Since land zoning, construction and public works decisions have to pursue the public interest.
A Little Help is a volunteer based nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado. We started in 2005 as Washington Park Cares when a group of retirees recognized the desire of many seniors in the area to stay in their own homes and contribute to their respective communities. These neighbors based their model on the national village movement, where neighbors coordinate and deliver essential services within their community to allow elders to remain in their homes.
Before every CiviCon there are trainings for both end-users and developers. Steve Kessler, Customer Support Manager at Cividesk is proud to be one of the three volunteer members of the end-user training team. We are working hard to make changes to the curriculum to add relevancy and a better flow.
