If you work for a small nonprofit, chances are you are looking for as many free or inexpensive tech resources as possible. If you represent a large organization, you’re probably still looking for budget-friendly ways to enhance productivity and communications. And if you’re job-hunting, learning new tech tools is a great way to beef up your resume. We recently updated our Nonprofit Technology resources page – which compiles free or low-cost tools on
- Videoconferencing Communication
- Cloud-Based Back-Up Systems and Storage Systems
- Document and Information Sharing
- Business Enhancing Software Programs
- Website Content Management
- Graphic Design Tools
- Social Media Tools
- Photo Editing Tools
- Video Editing Tools
- Web and E-mail Content Tools
- Productivity and Creativity Tools
One of our favorite tools is Canva, which we covered in a previous Tech Tips blog post, and which we use to produce all of our blog images and social media graphics (for free!). We’re also excited to start using Piktochart – an infographic design tool, and Moovly – a way to create animated videos, in our future communications.
Are there other tools that you or your organization has used in the past that have been really helpful? Let us know, and we’ll add it to our Nonprofit Technology page.
If you’ve enjoyed these tips, you won’t want to miss our upcoming Social Media for Nonprofits Conference – the only day-long social media conference in the region for nonprofits, government and community-based organizations! You will learn best practices, trends, and need-to-know information to connect your organization with social media to drive change.
