  • Evaluators
  • Scientific and medical researchers
  • Private foundations
  • National and local advocacy organizations

Types of databases

Our clients use our databases for many different purposes:

  • Contact management
  • Fundraising

  • Biospecimen banking
  • Eligibility assessment
  • Grant management
  • Project management and evaluation

Quicksilver's products range from single-station standalone Microsoft Access databases to web-enabled systems (usually developed in PHP and mySQL) to nationally-distributed client-server solutions using Microsoft SQL Server.

Other services

Although most of our work is database-related, our clients also retain our consulting services in a number of other areas related to nonprofit use of technology, including project management, community use of technology, and web development.
