Open Outreach provides an out of the box feature rich website for grassroots groups and nonprofits. Built as a distribution of the free Drupal web software, Open Outreach is currently powering more than 500 websites.
A Drupal distribution is designed so that much of the functionality that is required to build a website is available after a simple download. In essence it packages together areas of Drupal functionality by pre-configuring and enabling the modules required for these elements. Open Outreach contains features frequently used by organizations such as events calendars, a blog and ways to engage with members.
