Hot off the press is the 2021 Nonprofit Technology Trends Report. The report shares the results of over 500 nonprofit finance leaders who participated in the survey. Available in the report are the survey results around the topics of funding and donors; programs and services; communication and constituent engagement; market trends; technology; and accounting and financial management software.
When Sage Intacct published the 2020 Nonprofit Technology providing insights into how nonprofits leverage technology to achieve their mission, it was February. And then…we had no idea how our world would be turned upside down just one month later.
Respondents to the 2021 nonprofit technology survey are sharing their insights through a completely different lens. And while the impact of the pandemic is significant, there are some signs that allow for optimism.
The global pandemic and the subsequent health and economic impacts have forced people around the world to alter their day-to-day activities. The nonprofit community faced a dichotomy of grappling with organizational disruptions, while also being looked to for leadership to support and respond to the overwhelming societal challenges.
As nonprofits dealt with market uncertainty, higher demand for services with fewer resources, and the need for innovations to overcome challenges, many turned to technology to address these issues. In an industry where dollars mean the difference between having or not having meals, housing, healthcare, or education, the right technology can help improve efficiency, achieve compliance, save money, and ultimately, deliver greater mission impact.
With that in mind, Sage Intacct once again launched its annual nonprofit technology survey. Over 500 nonprofit finance leaders in the U.S. participated in the research study, providing their perspective on the industry, the challenges they face, and the technology engagement – in and out of the context of the pandemic.
