Charity selects EBS to deploy Microsoft ERP

One of Australia’s leading philanthropic organisations, Melbourne’s Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation, is strengthening controls and improving reporting on grants with the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV software.

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.”

“This will now be met within the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Cost Accounting module, as opposed to being managed outside of the system as previously. We are also integrating Microsoft Dynamics CRM with Microsoft Dynamics NAV to give the Foundation a holistic solution that will futureproof its core business functions and reporting.”

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.
