What Do I Need to Know About Managed IT Support for Nonprofits?
Technology is at the core of the typical nonprofit organization. You use it to mobilize your community and connect with donors and volunteers. You also use it for “back-office” operations such as project planning, financial reporting, sustainability planning, etc.
Nonprofit organizations face a tough balancing act. They have to channel their resources to their mission while ensuring smooth internal operations. Nonprofits must also deal with other ancillary challenges, including:
- Balancing between managing operational costs and accomplishing the mission
