Embracing Horses and The Urban Farm at Stapleton, is a nonprofit organization whose mission statement is to connect children from inner city neighborhoods to their natural environment, instilling a sense of respect, appreciation, and, ultimately responsibility for the plants and animals which share that space and a working knowledge of responsible stewardship of those plants and animals. To achieve this mission a paper based and generic database system have been utilized to record information pertaining to volunteers, financial donors, program offerings, and mailing distributions. These current systems no longer meet the needs of the organization, as the number of children involved has grown considerably over the past five years. This project proposes to research, analyze, design, and implement a centralized database system. This system will provide productivity tools, such as queries and reports for users to efficiently and effectively access necessary information about volunteers, financial donors, program offerings, and mailing distributions. Since the organization's primary form of financial assistance comes from government and private grant programs, these tools will also be utilized to provide statistical data in multiple reporting formats to accommodate various grant programs.
