Nonprofit development depends on technology. Developing a clear technology strategy allows a nonprofit/non-governmental organization to invest in the most appropriate tools to achieve fundraising success. The course addresses the application of technology categories such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) products, communication tools, gift processing, social networking, and crowdfunding. Students learn to assess a nonprofit/non-governmental organization's technology needs for fundraising, develop criteria for technology selection, and develop a technology implementation plan. Students examine issues around donor privacy, data security, fundraising ethics related to technology, and legal and tax implications. Students critically think through applying assessment and decision-making principles discussed in this course to current and future technologies.
