For this level of feature integration, you should look into enterprise-level CRM platforms, and expect to pay a premium for the service, and likely also training.

I bet Salesforce is the way to go; now that I think of it I thought they had a non-profit tier...

I've worked with Nationbuilder on a national campaign. It's a clunky program but not bad if you're working with millions of people at a time. --- this is free and integrates easily with gmail. I liked it a lot but I'm not sure it has everything you need.

I haven't used it yet. But I've been considereing Nation Builder. The Community Cycling Center, in Portland OR, is using it. They emailed the company and got a free version. If you try it out, let me know how it goes!

We're (Cycles for Change in St. Paul, MN is starting a search for a comprehensive database for all of our programs and activities.  We want something that:
Tracks participants, donors and volunteers over all programs
(Earn-a-Bike, Community Partners Bike Libary, Learn-to-Ride, Open Shop, Youth Apprenticeship, Volunteer Night, Community Rides, Equity Council, Infrastructure Advocacy)

Automates event sign-up for classes and events

Manages multiple email newsletters

Tracks participation levels (e.g. how often someone comes to open shop or if they attended all 4 classes in a four week course)

Tracks all communications with all participants, volunteers and donors

Comprehensive demographic information

Customizable reports

Anyone with any suggestions?  We're looking at something that is on the web (we have three locations). We are looking for something that does not require a techie to manage.

Specifically, we've heard there is a community bike center that has created a bike center implementation of SalesForce 

thanks much
