Looking for a database solution for a young and expanding non-profit.

I'm working for a startup sports and education non-profit and want to help them to organize some of their data.
They are growing quickly and currently have about 75 students enrolled. Currently, all data for these enrolled students is all over the place - some in email, some in hard copy, some in word or excel documents.
I would like to create a easy-to-use database which will contain all relevant data for each of these students, including contact, academic, medical and sports information. Also desirable is functionality for uploading files (pdfs, pictures).
Whatever solution cannot cost more than $300/year (preferably less of course), must be customizable for our unique fields, and must be easy-to-use for non-techie people (no IT person here). A cloud-based system is preferred but no required.
So far I have looked into bento (not customizable enough, more for personal use), filemaker (too complicated), and basecamp (no way to create forms).
Any advise is much appreciated.
