The San Francisco Center for the Book – a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization – fosters the joys of books and bookmaking, the history, artistry, and continuing presence of books in our culture and enduring importance as a medium of self-expression. We provide both a home for Bay Area book artists and a place where the wider community can discover book arts. Everyone is welcome here, experienced practitioners and newcomers alike. Over 300 workshops annually offer learning at all levels: from introductory to focused advanced courses spanning traditional bookbinding, cutting-edge printing techniques and experimental book forms. Exhibitions are designed to inform and inspire visitors. Free public programs include opening receptions for the exhibition program, poetry readings, book release parties for our publications, gallery talks, Open Houses and other community events like the annual Earth Day Extravaganza and Roadworks Street Fair.
The San Francisco Center for the Book uses CiviCRM to manage donors, track development campaigns, register students for workshops, manage RSVPs for events and to generate reports throughout the organization. SFCB is sponsoring CiviCon to support the ongoing development of the platform for our own use as well at the CiviCRM community and to build relationships with other non-profits for mutual sharing of our CiviCRM learnings.
