What is Charity Tracker?

What is the cost to be a part of Community Connections Network?

There is no charge for joining through 2019.  Community Connections and the ELM Foundation are working to secure funding so that being a part of Community Connections Network will continue to be low or no cost.

Is my clients' information safe in Charity Tracker?

Yes.  Charity Tracker is HIPPA compliant.  You can also enter as much or little data about your clients as you choose.  We do encourage you to use the client database as it allows other agencies better assist your clients and can provide valuable reporting.  In order to enter client data, the client must sign a release of information form which is kept on file for three years.  Once a client is in the database this release applies to all agencies.

What is required to join?

It's easy.  Sign up for a free trial subscription to Charity Tracker, and submit a Memorandum of Agreement committing to participate in the Networking Meetings and free training.
