501cTECH is thrilled to be a part of the Network for Nonprofit Technology Solution Providers (NNTSP), which was organized as a part of TechSoup Global.
We're happy to be able to join together with other NNTSP partners to be able to provide relief for organizations impacted by the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. We know that many small nonprofits had little technology infrastructure before the storm and have been seriously impacted after the storm.
The following members of NNTSP are actively helping the nonprofits highlight their on-the-ground needs, recover lost data, and rebuild their technology infrastructure:
- NPower PA is posting needs for technology equipment like basic networking devices and PCs, as well as on-the-ground reporting of the situation.
- 501cTECH (Washington, D.C.) is posting needs for metro cards and other needed items for displaced victims, along with requests for PCs and general networking devices.
- Aidmatrix provides the software to run the National Donations Management Network along with programmatic support for disaster relief domain expertise. Aidmatrix is taking needs from NNTSP members and publishing them, as well as partner NNTSP video blogs and other accounts, on government and industry portals that use Aidmatrix’s technology to publish real-time relief data. Microsoft has lent their Local Impact Map to the Aidmatrix disaster relief efforts, and in turn, the Aidmatrix NeedsFeed and Local Impact Map are featured on Microsoft’s ReadyReach Hurricane Sandy Response site as well as in communications from leaders such as Microsoft Corporate Citizenship’s Akhtar Badshah.
