Technology Adoption for Nonprofits

Advances in technology provide nonprofits with the ability to expand their reach, increase awareness of the good work being done, and fundraise.

Taking advantage of the latest in technology is not only a smart move for your nonprofit, it is critical for your organization’s long term survival. With the latest advances in technology, barriers once in place have now been removed, and your organization can now touch new supporters, donors and partners at the local, national and international level.

The benefits of incorporating the latest in technology for your nonprofit include, but aren’t limited to the following:

  • Enhancing Advocacy Related Work
  • Nurturing Donor and Partner Relationships
  • Effective and Efficient Fundraising
  • Increased Employee Productivity and Communications

Ok, I get it. So, where do we begin? As stated in this blog post from Tech Soup the first step is to "Just Do It." While we are in complete agreement, you also want to, “Do it Right.” There is where the expertise of the right business partner is vital.

The adoption and implementation of any new technology requires commitment from the executive team, resources for staff and volunteer training, and a willingness to reexamine internal policies and procedures.

If all this sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

At Tech Impact, we understand that most nonprofits are stretched thin, requiring employees to wear a variety of hats. Rolling out new technology will require education, resources and clear communications internally as to what is expected of each staff member. Some of your employees will be intimated by new technology, while others will embrace the challenge, and want to assume a leadership role that works well for a “train the trainer” approach.

Whatever the size or technological knowledge of your staff, our team of seasoned, nonprofit professionals can help. Tech Impact provides a full suite of strategic consulting services for the nonprofit community that addresses the individual needs of your organization. Some of our services include—

  • Help Desk – Managed IT Services

Our mission is to empower communities and nonprofits to use technology to better serve the world. Give us a call. We are here to help.
