In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we wanted to take a minute to talk about nonprofits, specifically those our blog readers are engaged with.
We know that many small and mid-sized business owners and management, despite being short on time and often overworked, find time to donate to nonprofits, both monetarily as well as in service. Many of you may serve on boards, or help out at fundraising events. If you are in IT, or in a field at least related to IT, you may find you are the one called on to help advise with a nonprofit’s network or computer issues.
According to a survey this past summer, 7 percent of large nonprofits described their organization as “struggling” to keep up with technology, and a little more than half of smaller organizations – those with budgets under $1 million – said they were doing a bare minimum or struggling to keep up with technological progress.
