Better I.T. For a Better World
Our Mission: IT4Causes, a 501(c)(3) organization, provides stable, secure, and sustainable information technology solutions that enable other nonprofit organizations to focus on their missions and serve their clients better, with lower total cost to their organization and the community.
It's Annual Campaign Time!
In the season of giving, please consider supporting IT4Causes with your tax-deductible donations. Your generous support will help to continue to provide the data and information technology that other nonprofits need to be effective and efficient in fulfilling their missions. We've helped dozens of local charities so far, and benefited many interns and job-seekers in the process, but there are many more needing our help, and our biggest constraint is funding. Thank you for your support!
Please support IT4Causes through Amazon Smile! Once you set IT4Causes as your preferred charity in Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of purchases to IT4Causes. It's quick, it's simple, and it helps, so sign up today!
Awesome new volunteer opportunities!
Why IT Matters
Common IT Challenges for Small and Mid-sized Nonprofits:
In addition to problems faced by most organizations, the unique nature of nonprofits creates even more challenges:
- Lack of knowledgeable, dedicated IT staff due to lack of funding
- No long-term IT strategy
- Productivity loss and other risks from unstable servers, unreliable networks, lack of redundancy, inconsistent backups, and inadequate security
Agencies often ask volunteers to help out, but this can result in:
- Loss of knowledge when volunteers move on
- Inconsistent configurations over time
- Cobbled-together solutions that are not maintainable
