Capital Business Solutions helped provide Raiser’s Edge training services and consulting to MAG America with a plan for additional system services coming up over the next few months.

Working directly with Abby Frimpong, the new Director of Development at MAG America, CBS provided an overview training to the staff on the Development team. The training included a topline Raiser’s Edge review, entering of constituent records, creating queries, export and mail merges.

Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an international organization that saves lives and builds futures through the removal and destruction of landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO), and other weapons remaining after conflict. Since 1989, MAG has worked in over 35 countries and was co-laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997. MAG’s leading priority is to protect the lives and well being of the most vulnerable individuals in contaminated areas by providing risk education and removing deadly weapons. Equally important, we focus on development by clearing land in affected areas to open access to agriculture, water, schools, hospitals, and roads.
