Three Best Practices for Using Technology

It's the start of a new year and we've just looked at five high-tech trends and five nonprofit tech trends. While it's fun predicting all the trends in technology, we believe it's also important to remember best practices to ensure we use technology effectively. Here are three best practices that are essential to a nonprofit’s success:

Five Nonprofit Tech Trends

While it’s very interesting to follow all the high-tech trends, it’s highly unlikely for trends such as virtual reality, wearable technologies and assistive robotic technologies to impact your nonprofit’s day-to-day operations in 2014. So here’s our predictions of tech trends that should be top of mind for nonprofits:

Five Tech Trends for 2014

With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, it’s hard at times for nonprofits keep up and determine which tech trends are worth their investment. To help nonprofits start the new year right, Jane Zhang (ED of TechSoup Canada and Director of Online Services at the Centre for Social Innovation) highlighted five cutting-edge tech trends to follow, five important trends nonprofits should embrace in 2014, and three best practices for using technology.

Which Crowdfunding Platform Is Best for Your Nonprofit?

It seems like there's a new crowdfunding website out there every week, but which one is right for your nonprofit? I looked at a few popular crowdfunding sites and dissected their cost plans, nonprofit support, and special features. What platform you choose really depends on the size of your nonprofit and what sort of campaign you plan to run.

Take the Next Step with Data Sharing for Nonprofits

Your organization is already tracking and collecting data -- how much money you raised, how many supporters you have, donor relationships, mission statistics, etc. -- but have you considered freely sharing your data? The open data movement is rapidly gaining support, so it’s time to learn what it is and how it impacts your organization.

5 Tech Trends for 2013

Technology continues to change at a very rapid pace - things that were “out there” just a few years ago are now reality, and are quickly becoming mainstream. While many of these innovations are happening in the personal/consumer space, it’s good to keep an eye on them because organizations are likely to follow - not to mention that we need to stay on top of how our communities want to interact with us.

Friday Feed - Great resources from the web - January 20, 2012

In order to stay up to date on what's going on in the world of technology - and nonprofit technology in particular - I follow quite a few blogs and twitter feeds. There's a lot of great content out there but if you don't have the time to stay on top of things (and even if you do!) it can be overwhelming. So, for those of you who have less time to do all this "listening" on nonprofit technology, I'm posting a blog each Friday with the top resources I found in the last week.
