The Microsoft deployment by Melbourne-based Evolution Business Systems (EBS), will provide the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation with the easy access and powerful, flexible reporting that enables it to obtain key business information when it is needed.
The Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation, established in 1923, is the largest community foundation in Australia, and this year has provided grants of $9.27 million to more than 500 charities including charities working at the frontline providing health, accommodation and food services to people in need, to charitable organisations working towards positive social change.
EBS Managing Director Paul Woods said the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation had chosen Microsoft Dynamics NAV because it offered integration and advanced functionality. “The Foundation has some complex requirements to gain visibility into the various funds and recipients of funds that they manage.”
The Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation aims to increase life opportunities and promote social inclusion through a combination of grants, research, partnerships, communications and investment tools to grow and build strong communities. Its work impacts on areas including homelessness, youth, ageing, food security, environment, community and preventative health, and arts and heritage.
