Nonprofits understand the important strategic role technology plays in fundraising and programs. Partly because technology funding for mission-related activities is easier to secure, and revenue returns justify fundraising investments. In contrast, operations are commonly underfunded because nonprofits are often unfairly evaluated on how little they spend on expenses that are necessary to maintain and grow the organization.
In this course, you’ll get familiar with technologies that support finance, HR, administration, and operations. You’ll learn how tech can be used to streamline work and automate redundant tasks. And, you’ll look at ways you can work with staff, vendors, and other organizations to better take advantage of existing tools.
While we’ll discuss tech, the course will be more about business processes and how technology can support them. Used wisely, technology can reduce data entry burdens, improve communications, and help administrative staff more effectively and efficiently support your organization’s work.
