The role of technology for not-for-profits, in the context of COVID 19

impact2020 webinar was originally held on 11 Nov 2020

Technology use across the not-for-profit sector is crucial in delivering services and supporting our communities, yet its role is often overlooked.

In this impact2020 webinar, in partnership with the Centre for Social Impact and Infoxchange, the results of the 2020 Digital Technology in the Not-for-Profit Sector report - the most comprehensive look at NFP technology use across Australia and New Zealand - are presented by Infoxchange CEO, David Spriggs.

Now in its fifth year, Infoxchange’s report provides a benchmark for all NFPs across Australia and New Zealand to ensure they are using technology in the best way possible to achieve their mission, and an overview of where the areas of growth and improvement in the sector are.

This year’s report also provides an important insight into how NFPs are using technology in light of COVID-19.

Hear from our speakers as they discuss how not-for-profits have responded to the pandemic and the role that technology can play in ensuring we keep supporting our communities and have the biggest impact possible.

Now in its fifth year, this report provides a benchmark for all not-for-profit organisations across the region to ensure they are using technology the best way possible to achieve their mission.
