IT Budgeting for Nonprofits

Posted by on January 2, 2007

Teaming for Technology (T4T) will be hosting another series of very informative technology related workshops geared to assist Nonprofits with technology project planning. Beginning on January 24, 2007, we will have a two-part session for Nonprofits on how non-technical managers can make decisions about technology and how Nonprofits can budget for IT projects.

Why Attend this Workshop?
Since technology began to find its way into nonprofits in the 1980?s, budgeting for it has been a problem. Many nonprofits still have no distinct IT budget or budgeting process, let alone separate capital, operations, and support budgets. This presentation argues that preparation of an IT budget is a critical step both towards controlling IT costs and increasing the usefulness of IT systems. Through the use of standards, templates, and industry experience, nonprofits can develop IT budgets with relative ease, and should.

Technical Decisions for Non-Technical Managers
Presented by T4T at United Way of Southeastern PA
Wednesday 1/24/06 ? Online Registration
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Why Attend this Workshop?
Nonprofit managers are ever more often called on to make decisions about technology, but few have any background or training in information systems. Lack of confidence and, in some cases, skill often lead to slow and ineffective decision-making as well as flawed decisions and, in some cases, no decisions at all. A combination of increased literacy, good decision making processes, and effective use of technical resources and peers leads to better, faster decisions, even for non-technical managers.
