Update Your Strategies to Include More Social Media Efforts

The power of social media cannot be overemphasized. It plays a critical role in different industries and is a vital component in fundraising strategies for any modern nonprofit organization. A good presence of your nonprofit in social media will not only help you in reaching more people but will also aid you in fostering your community of donors. Furthermore, a successful social media presence has a direct correlation with the amounts raised.


The Genesis of Boardable: A Nonprofit in Need

One of my favorite things about Boardable is our origin story. It wasn’t a group of software startup gurus sitting around thinking of market needs. It came about organically, from a place of meaning and service. With the United Way of Central Indiana as our flagship customer, we have been able to create a product that speaks directly to nonprofit needs in a way that a more clinical approach couldn’t have. From the very beginning, we took a real organization, with real challenges and people, into consideration as we created tools to help. This is that story.


Why Nonprofits Must Pay Attention to Protecting Their Data

With all the recent news about data breaches in organizations and the increase in the amount of data that companies collect, data protection is now required more than ever. It’s time to consider the best practices that can help your nonprofit to secure the future of data and its online presence entirely. With more nonprofits now collecting data from donors and using it in their activities, the call for regulation and privacy has increased.


Nonprofits Should Look at These Technologies that Will be Important in 2020

Like for-profit businesses, nonprofit organizations also face many challenges, most of which are due to the overall trends in the industry.  These trends keep shifting the direction that nonprofits want to take as they continuously change. As the New Year begins, it is wise to expect, understand and prepare for how these changing trends might influence your nonprofit going forward.  Below are the industry trends that every nonprofit should keep an eye on in 2020.


Don’t Let Cyber Hygiene Become an Afterthought

The beginning of a new year (and new decade) is a time for us all to evaluate our habits, whether good or bad, especially in the workplace. As we leave behind the holiday season and approach tax season, we can’t let good cyber hygiene become an afterthought. Cybercriminals know most organizations cannot afford disruption during the year’s peak donating season, and their targeting of organizations at this time is a deliberate ploy to extort as much as they can.


Social Media is Driving Nonprofit Giving

Digital marketing is a fantastic way for many industries, and nonprofits to expand into this sphere. However, many charities have failed to make use of this method of marketing as many of them still rely on offline-based marketing methods such as the use of flyers and marketing emails. Although it is undeniable that these offline tactics are essential in maintaining a balanced marketing plan, organizations that are rigid in adopting modern methods of marketing such as social media are missing out on opportunities of increased reach and donations that they could have obtained from social media users. This is however changing fast.


More Nonprofits Are Considering Cryptocurrency as Part of Their Strategies

Since cryptocurrency came into existence, many industries have entered the race as either investors, users or have accepted it as a form of payment by their customers. Owing to the reception of cryptocurrency as a method of payment by many industries and individuals, more nonprofits are now exploring the possibility of using this method in their strategies. UNICEF is one of the nonprofits that can now receive, keep and disburse digital currency through its UNICEF Cryptocurrency Fund which was launched a few months ago. With a vast knowledge in blockchain, UNICEF will also adopt other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether in funding its activities to benefit children and young people.


Industry Trends for Nonprofits

This is a time of great potential for not-for-profit organizations to address management and competitive challenges and take advantage of opportunities afforded by new technologies and practices to effect substantial operational change. Innovation is beginning to impact the sector and will continue to do so over the course of this year and beyond — and leading organizations are harnessing its potential to their advantage.


Watch These Trends And Discover How They Can Help Your Nonprofit Do Better In 2020

For over a decade now, fundraising trends have advanced swiftly. Most of the changes that occurred can be linked to the advancement of technology and the impact the internet is having on individuals. However, some of the changes are directly associated with changes in cultural and societal norms. Nonprofits have not been left behind. Large nonprofits are now using technological solutions to reach donors through various platforms.


Step Outside for Fresh Perspective

Your drive and passion launched your nonprofit; however it takes business savvy to keep things operating efficiently and sustainably. A nonprofit recently asked us to take a look at their fundraising efforts. It turns out their two biggest campaigns each year, demanding significant up-front costs and time, were not reaching top donors. Digging into their systems and data revealed some costly operations issues too.
