Today is a special day at Calxa. Reaching the $1million target of software donated to not-for-profits has the company celebrating an important milestone.

CEO Mick Devine declares “When we made our pledge four years ago, we didn’t realise how soon we would fulfill our target. Knowing that hundreds of organisations are making significant inroads in cutting the burden of reporting and achieving better governance is a great feeling.”

Calxa reached its target this week with their donation to Southern Shoalhaven Meals on Wheels, a small community organisation that delivers meals and provides social services to the frail and elderly on the NSW south coast. Services co-ordinator, Vicki Love, says, “As a small not-for-profit we welcome any assistance we can get and I really think that Calxa will make a difference to our treasurer and make it easier to meet our reporting needs.” With fewer resources available than their larger counterparts, grassroots organisations reap the productivity gains from using Calxa. “These smaller organisations have the same mandatory requirements as their larger counterparts”, says Mr Devine.

The donation program is managed by Connecting Up in Australia and TechSoup in New Zealand who help many not-for-profits getting their Technology in order. Partner Manager, Josh Goodwin says “Calxa has been instrumental in its help for the not-for-profit sector. Having hit $1,000,000 of donated product in four years is no small feat.”

“It really makes a difference for us, and if it does for us, I know Calxa actually is helping to change the world for the better by donating the software to the many charities it goes to.”, says Alan ‘Junior’ Marlowe, Business Manager at Townsville’s contemporary arts center Umbrella Studio.

Linking directly to their underlying accounting system, organisations are looking to improve the way they work. Having access to automation that replaces tedious spreadsheet tasks not only saves time, it sets the foundation for better decision making.

It is befitting that celebrations are taking place on “Giving Tuesday” symbolising the significance of Calxa’s social impact on the organisations and people they meet. Media is welcome to join customers and friends of Calxa on Tuesday, 1st December 2015 at 4.30pm at Calxa’s new premises at 711 Flinders Street, Townsville QLD.
