BigSIS Features (aka 'modules')

Learn more about our flexible modular system

The features are components of functionality that can extend your BigSIS installation. You decide what you need and add more as you grow.


Volunteer Management

Our Volunteer Management module allows users to sign up for volunteer opportunities in the system and then submit the the hours they completed. If you require a minimum number of volunteer hours per year for your parents, you can use this tool to allow them to sign up for tasks and track their progress.

Calendars & Events

The Calendars & Events tool is a powerful and flexible calendar program that is built right into BigSIS. It allows for multiple sub-calendars, each with their own events. You will also have the option to make public and private sub-calendars by controlling the viewing permissions of your calendar users.

Donations & Fundraising

The Donations & Fundraising module is a development tool that allows you to track your gifts and pledges and their associated campaigns, funds and appeals. And because the majority of people who donate or are potential donors (parents, grandparents, alumni, etc.) will already be in BigSIS, it’s the perfect place to track your current donations and solicit new ones!
