How NGOs Worldwide Use Online Technology and Social Media

7,529 views

Published on

Over the last two decades the global NGO sector has embraced online technology, but economic and political factors and the quality of Internet infrastructure regionally often affects how well NGOs worldwide can use new technology. Not surprisingly, there is a gap between the utilization of online fundraising tools and social media by NGOs in high-income nations and those in developing nations.

Based upon data gleaned from the 2017 Global NGO Online Technology Report, this webinar (presented on 2/7/17 to 1,600+ NGO staff) highlighted how NGOs worldwide use the internet to build awareness and raise funds to advance their mission and programs and elevate their online brand. Attendees will gain insight by learning benchmarks for success based on NGOs active online across six continents.

How NGOs Worldwide Use Online Technology and Social Media

  1. 1. • About the 2017 Global NGO Online Technology Report • Summary of Findings and Benchmarks for Success: - Web and email communications - Online and mobile fundraising - Social media use and social media management • 2017 Global NGO Online Technology Effectiveness Ratings • Call for Partners! 2018 Global NGO Online Technology Report and the new 2017 Trends in Global Giving Report
  2. 2. • Now in its second year, the primary goal of the 2017 Global NGO Online Technology Report is to set benchmarks for success for NGOs worldwide. • The report is sponsored by the Public Interest Registry – the nonprofit responsible for managing the .org, .ngo, and .ong domains – and produced by Nonprofit Tech for Good. • To increase the diversity of the survey respondents (live from August 1 – October 31), we partnered with five organizations to increase our reach worldwide.
  3. 3. • 4,908 NGOs worldwide participated in the survey. Of those, 4,591 completed the survey in English. 194 in Spanish. 123 in French. • 56.1% defined themselves as a small NGO. 34.7% as medium-sized. 9.2% as a large NGO. Africa 8.8% Europe 13% Asia 27.8% North America 44.1% Australia & Oceania 3.7% South America 2.6%
  4. 4. When asked to select one or two causes as the primary focus of their organization’s work, the NGOs responded: Animals 2.2% Human and civil rights 4.9% Arts and culture 3.4% Human services 8.8% Children and youth 14% International development 3.7% Community development 13.5% Peace and nonviolence 1.6% Education 17.2% Religious services and faith 2.9% Environment 5.4% Research and public policy 4% Health and safety 11.2% Women and girls 7.2%
  5. 5. • When asked which term best defines their organization: • “NGO” is the most common term used in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. “Non-profit organization” is the most common term in North America (79%) and Australia & Oceania (49%). Non-profit organization (NPO) 49.7% Civil society organization (CSO) 5% Non-governmental organization (NGO) 29.3% Public benefit organization (PBO) 2.8% Charity 8.6% Other 4.6%
  6. 6. 1. Citizens and NGOs active on the Internet are disconnected more by language than they are by time zone. 2. Every country has unique characteristics in banking, government regulation of the NGO sector, and Internet infrastructure and freedom that either impede the progress of their NGO sector or advance it. 3. For every one question answered in the report, three more questions arise. The lack of data about the global NGO sector is vast and it will take years of research to fill.
