IT for the Not-for-Profit & Charity sector
The Not-for-Profit and Charity sector is undergoing significant change, our Governments are looking at ways to reduce spending to this sector, traditional sources of funding for the Not-for-Profit sector are shifting, and Donors are increasingly want to see the impact of their support (see that they are making a difference!). Proper use of Technology in Not-for-Profits is now more so than ever by driving productivity, improving efficiencies and service delivery are crucial to ensure the organisation achieves its goals.
We are finding that our clients in the Not-for-Profit sector are under increasing pressure to become more efficient in a competitive landscape, whilst being able to report on the impact and outcomes achieved Year on Year. Funding changes are requiring many of our clients to need to re-invent themselves and their business models, communicate and align these changes to their corporate goals.
