Nonprofit Internet Toolkit and Resources

Every nonprofit has fundamental needs. For example, all nonprofits need to inform, educate and/or inspire people about their organizations or causes. Many nonprofits need to manage volunteers. All nonprofits need to raise money. These needs can be met by applying the right tool to the task. With the help of many contributors, DCN has put together a Nonprofit Internet Toolkit of tools that have the potential to help nonprofits with their various needs. The Nonprofit Internet Toolkit describes a variety of tools, resources, classes and support that could improve a nonprofit's effectiveness in serving its mission. The section on Basic Internet Resources for Nonprofits describes the tools that DCN currently recommends and provides to local nonprofits. The other categories (Collaborative Workflow Tools, Communication Tools, etc.) reflect our research on tools that are generally available to nonprofits, describes models for how they are currently used by some nonprofits, and provides best practices in their use. As part of a pilot program involving six local nonprofits (through September, 2008), DCN is testing and evaluating various tools from this list for potential addition to our toolkit, but note that these additional tools are *not* currently supported by our Resource Allocation Committee, our Webteam, or our regular consulting or training programs.
