Published on

Today, more than ever, nonprofit organizations depend on technology to achieve their mission. However, studies have shown that IT does not play a prominent role in most nonprofits. Spending for technology purposes is a small portion of most nonprofit annual budgets, a majority of cases less than 1% as compared to 3%-4% for small-medium corporations. This workshop will provide tools for creating a strategic technology plan for your organization, explore the cost of technology, and provide tips for creating an effective RFP.
