Republican Innovations for Presidents, National Committees, State Parties, Federal and State Candidates
Since 1981, CMDI has provided innovative fundraising and compliance solutions for political organizations, non-profits, and corporations. Our software and services are used for:
- donor relationship management,
- donation processing (both on & offline), and
- federal & state campaign compliance.
Accessible real-time data allows our clients to maximize their fundraising effectiveness and generate increased revenue while lowering overall fundraising costs.
Trusted Republican Partner
As CMDI works toward new solutions for the future, take comfort in the knowledge that CMDI is a trusted partner to Republicans and organizations supportive of Republican efforts. CMDI does not provide services to non-Republican clients We believe this distinction will also be important to Congressional and Senatorial campaigns, state parties and conservative PACs as CMDI continues to release fundraising innovations.

Republican Innovations Generating Billions of Dollars in Donations
Recently CMDI’s forward-thinking approach has led to major donor fundraising enhancements including club program support, pledge systems, event tracking and fundraising call management that have boosted fundraising efforts at the RNC, NRSC and NRCC multiple presidential campaigns. Crimson, our web-based fundraising platform, provides interactive functionality and reporting in personalized web pages for bundlers and the fundraising teams they recruit. This year we have taken our Crimson fundraising platform mobile by providing powerful fundraising technologies that can be accessed from any smartphone.
In the 2012 political cycle, CMDI’s products and services have been critical in raising and managing more that 60% of all Republican federal campaign donations.
Security & Reliability
Confidentiality, security and reliability are essential to running a successful fundraising effort. We understand that having a server down, even for a few minutes during a big fundraising day can cost a campaign hundreds of thousands or even millions in lost fundraising dollars.
As a result, we placed our Crimson databases live on database servers and Storage Area Networks (SAN) hosted in a SSAE 16 Type 2 compliant data center. Every 20 minutes these databases are snapshotted, replicated, and synchronized with mirror databases that live in an onsite data center. Every night the SAN data volumes are cloned and mounted to backup servers onsite. High density differential backups to tape are also performed nightly. Every week differential backups and full backups are saved to SDLT tapes and stored in a locked fire safe. The previous week’s backups are then transferred to an off-site data storage facility. Every other week back up data is physically moved to an off-site data storage facility.
In the event of a catastrophic incident or zombie apocalypse at one of our two geographically separate data centers, service can be quickly restored. We maintain Active Directory Servers, Web Servers and Database Servers in both data centers that mirror each other in terms of functionality and data storage. A point-to-point fiber-optic link connects the data centers so either one of them could be used as a primary production server or as a backup of the other.
