8:45am Technology 101: What is basic, cheap or free? A Checklist of Tools

While new technology continues to develop, more tools are available for nonprofits, higher education and other organizations. It’s no secret that smaller organizations generally have fewer resources, smaller staff and therefore less time to dedicate to enhancements than others, but there are incredible tools available at little or no cost to groups like these.  This panel will help attendees to compile a basic toolbox of resources that can benefit each organization and discuss these amazing products and services available by groups who understand their needs.

For many nonprofits, new technological advances mean new concerns about privacy, security and safety.  Cloud computing seems like an abstract or challenging concept, but most don’t realize that the new technological norm is much less complex than it may seem. We will discuss risks but also benefits and savings. This panel will also address donor data privacy and cybersecurity as a major concern for nonprofit organizations.

1:05pm  Integral role of MIS and IT in your office

Too many business in all industries have spent money on analytics that end up being unused. As nonprofits, the last thing they can afford is to spend money on something they do not end up using.  This is why it is so crucial to have IT, involved in these decisions, and to speak with peers to find out what works and what does not work.  It is extremely valuable for the people entering the data to see firsthand how it is used, to have transparency into the data, and to incentivize the work and proper recording of the data.

Times are changing, and fundraising is evolving too.  To be successful, a nonprofit’s fundraising approach needs to adapt and innovate.

Additionally, technology, social media and mobile marketing can attract and inspire new donors who might not have contributed to a cause otherwise.
