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.

Why IT Matters

Nonprofit agencies (we like to call them “for-purpose agencies”) need secure and reliable access to business records, client information, volunteer contacts, donor records, and a host of other data. Just like in for-profit businesses, slow performance, data loss, poor integration, and clunky interfaces make the work harder for everyone and impact the bottom line. Except with for-purpose agencies, the bottom line is people, not dollars.

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

Our Solutions:

For-purpose organizations need and deserve the best IT solutions possible to serve their clients. They just need them on a lower-cost basis than for-profit businesses. So at IT4Causes, we’re building the future state of nonprofit IT based on robust strategy, state-of-the-practice technology, and best-in-class people. Our model leverages a shared IT roadmap, common solutions to problems all NPOs face, and skilled IT volunteers to deliver best-in-class services at a nonprofit price.
