Digital Inclusion Fellowship Toolkit (2016)

With the input of Fellows and City Hosts, we have created this toolkit to support practitioners in building digital literacy programs within their organizations and with community partners. We provide resources on topics ranging from best practices on volunteer recruitment to classroom logistics, digital literacy resources to partnership development.

2016 Digital Outlook Report

What does digital strategy look like in your organization? We asked, and nearly 500 individuals from nonprofit organizations responded! This is our second year doing this survey, and as we found in our last report, digital strategy is a growing priority in nonprofits, but this growth is not consistent across organizations in terms of staffing, tools, and tactics. See how organizations are laying the foundation for their digital strategies in this report.
