As one of the initial clients of Sumac, Nightwood not only continues to use the system but has been gradually augmenting our operations with Sumac’s enhancement modules including volunteer management and ticketing.
I can attest that improved efficiency in our data management and communications in the last five years is directly associated to Sumac. Most notably, it has assisted our strategies to more fully integrate audience development and private sector undraising campaigns.

Sumac fits our needs: it’s cost-effective, easy-to-use, flexible and improves Nightwood’s organizational capacity. – Monica Esteves , Producer and General Manager
