TACS United Way Database


Microsoft Access application designed for use by small non-profits in tracking contact information of constituents, outreach activities, donations, pledges, personal relationships, etc. Closely patterned after the Select Control Database V3 developed and distributed by Bednar Consulting.

This customization of the Select Control Database V3 was funded by Technical Assistance for Community Services (TACS), Portland, Oregon, and was intended for distribution to small non-profits involved in a grant funded by the United Way. This database provides functionality very similar to that provided by the Select Control Database V3, but with some changes in interface and select reports used by recipient groups to share financial information with TACS.
