Non-profits often have the same operational challenges as for-profit businesses, but with a tighter budget to achieve them. The mission of your non-profit organization is always your top priority, and technology should be a means of accomplishing that mission, not an expense or obstacle that distracts you. Moreover, technology can be a lever to help you maximize the effectiveness of your operations and mission.
We’ve helped countless Maryland nonprofits in a variety of ways – technology services partner, one-time projects, pro-bono consulting and relationship connections. We’re big supporters of the nonprofit community and understand their common challenges:
- Fundraising – nearly all non-profits spend significant time and effort to raise the money needed to operate. This is an ongoing challenge and successful non-profits maximize technology to connect with donors and friends.
- Service delivery – whatever service the non-profit delivers, it typically needs to do so on a tight budget. Stretching dollars to accomplish the mission is a critical focus for all non-profits.
- Employee recruiting and retention – loyal and productive staff are the lifeblood of any organization, and is especially true for non-profits. The lure of higher salaries or titles is a common challenge for non-profit staff retention.
