Drupal is a free and open-source content management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License. It is used as a back-end framework for at least 2.1% of all websites worldwide ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including whitehouse.gov and data.gov.uk. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.
CiviCRM is the world's leading open source CRM for nonprofits, and the *only* one that integrates with all three major content management systems (Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla). I'm going to take you through Civi's feature set and explain how to use it at your club, nonprofit, or society. Then we're going to show the real power of CRM/CMS integration by creating an event calendar, newsletter signup page, and self-service profile management on a Drupal site, without writing a single line of code.
