Help with using technology

Nonprofit organizations use technology in their work in a wide variety of ways, from raising money through text messages to mapping areas of need using Geographic Information System tools.

The variety of ways nonprofits can use technology, and the many choices there are about approaches and tools, can be more than small organizations with limited budgets can handle.
