Tips/advice for successful community funded (marketing) projects?

I think a solid constituent management system is important.  Keeping the 
data clean.  Don't send me 4 emails and 5 snail mails about an event or 
I'll start to find you annoying.  You'll also be able to better market 
your services to donors / members prospects.  There's some good 
proprietary solutions.  I've never used civicrm but it might be worth 
checking out.
