Open Outreach logo

Open Outreach is a quick and inexpensive way for nonprofits and community organizations to get up and running using Drupal with the web tools they need for effective public engagement.

It includes the latest version of Drupal core and other modules and comes preconfigured with features frequently used by organizations such as events calendars, image and video handling, social media integration, and contact management. If you're a nonprofit having a website built for you, or if you're building a website for a nonprofit, starting with Open Outreach can save you thousands of dollars in development costs as well as a lot of time and work.

Open Outreach is produced by Chocolate Lily in partnership with Praxis Labs Coop. Chocolate Lily provides support and Open Outreach site development.
