We’ve also found that it can help to have an idea of where a nonprofit is in their technological capacity. Not every nonprofit will be able to use technology to its potential, and often, building new applications for a nonprofit can do more harm than good. This is because tech must be continuously managed, fixed, and updated – and without engineering resources, nonprofits cannot do this effectively. It’s important to understand where your nonprofit is on this general spectrum.
Not tech focused (having an informational website isn’t technical)
Little bit tech focused (have an app, but that is not their sole tactic in making a difference)
Tech nonprofits - nonprofit whose primary mission is to contribute building out humanitarian software (but no robust way to onboard engineers)
Tech nonprofits with volunteer platform & community managers
