Basic Internet Resources for Nonprofits

Take a look at the resources DCN allocates to local nonprofits!

Integrate your organization's web calendar public events with DCN's Community Calendar
SimpleSite is a versatile webpage template for groups wishing to build a web page without needing to know about HTML coding or learning how to upload files to a Web server.
Mailman (Email List)
Use an electronic mailing list to communicate with your constituents and staff members through announcements as well as through discussions and collaboration. Every DCN SimpleSite has the option to use a built-in form for people to subscribe to the mailing list. They can also use the form to unsubscribe (remove themselves from the list). With a little extra work, the standard sign-up form can be modified to add some additional information beyond email information (see as an example). Very large lists can be used with this service; some of the organizations on DCN have more than 1000 subscribers. Pre-existing electronic mailing lists can be added as a group and a list of subscribers can also be exported from Mailman into a file such as a spreadsheet.
Volunteer Management Lite System
Discounted (nonprofit) Dial-up accounts
Courtesy dial-up accounts, at the end of the project period, must usually be converted to regular dialups with a monthly fee paid to Omsoft. The nonprofit DCN dialup account is provided for a discounted monthly charge and some extras.
