A Message from the Founder and CEO Ed Schipul 

Dear Tendenci Community,

This week marks the 22nd year that we have been in business. It seems like both a very short, and very long, time to walk this path.

We started out with a vision of connecting people and communities throughout the world, and while the technology involved has changed rapidly over time, our commitment never has. 

Tendenci was built on the shared needs of organizations and nonprofits, designed by you to help people engage in fruitful discussion and support each other in individually specific ways.

Taking Tendenci open source was always the goal, a return to the roots of the Internet itself. Sharing information leads the way to bigger ideas, dreams that can be realized more quickly and more completely when we work together.

With developers around the world collaborating on Tendenci, the entire open source community benefits from a diversity of thought, a culmination of ideas that allow us all to step forward together. 

We could not have taken this journey without you and thank you all for your support throughout the years. Tendenci will continue to grow and expand, knocking down barriers and delivering communication opportunities to people of all nations, regardless of circumstance. 

Our vision and mission is still the same. To connect and organize the world’s people. Do good.

As a community, we can make that happen.

Sincerely,

Ed Schipul

Founder and CEO
