Supporting Nonprofit Technology: A Panel for Foundations
Idealware recently released A Funders Guide to Supporting Nonprofit Technology: 10 Ways to Build Your Grantees' Technical Savvy, a resource developed with our foundation partners to help foundations understand how to maximize their investments and help ensure the success of their grantees.
Through this mutual effort, we learned that technology capacity building is one way foundations can have a broad-reaching positive impact throughout a nonprofit organization, affecting all of its programs and services. And now we’re furthering that conversation. Supporting Nonprofit Technology: A Panel for Foundations is an online panel made up of foundation representatives who can speak directly to the positive impact they’ve had through supporting technology. While technology in and of itself will not save lives or end world hunger, it can have a powerful effect on every organization’s mission. Properly supported, the right technologies can build nonprofits’ effectiveness and efficiency and multiply the impact of a foundation’s grants and programs. Included on the panel will be some of the organizations profiled in the case studies included in the guide, and they will expand upon not only what spurred them to support technology but also the results they’ve seen.
Who should attend? Foundation program officers already working to support technology who want to help grantees make the right choices with their technology budgets, or those just beginning to gain an interest in technology themselves. We’ll help you think about planning to support nonprofit technology in way that meets both your funding ability and level of readiness.
This panel discussion is free to join.
