I think I will need something which is tailored towards employee scheduling. I
don't think that a project management or groupware package will do what I need.

Unfortunately I have yet to find something that does exactly what I want. I have
found some of the features I need in various applications, but nothing that
completely fits the bill. The closest thing I've found so far is probably
TeamWork ( http://www.schedulesource.com/software/workforce_software.aspx ).
They are way over priced though.
It's true that many companies give significant discounts to non-profits. We
actually found that it would be significantly cheaper to buy exchange rather
than setup Kolab and buy liscenses for outlook connectors.
