Gregg Hawn, of TechnologyGives, on Technology Considerations for Charitable Organizations

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- According to the Center for Charitable Statistics there are more than 1.5 million charitable organizations registered in the United States. There is a concept applicable to charities called the "technology blind-spot." The adoption of technology is often ancillary to a charity's core mission. As a result, there can be a lack of internal focus on technology advancements that could shape the way a charitable organization operates, communicates and fundraises.TechnologyGives, a non-profit organization based in the Washington, D.C. area, has been founded to assist charities with a need for technology to allow them to advance their missions at a more rapid pace."The idea of TechnologyGives was based on the premise that charitable and non-profit organizations should have the ability to obtain the information they need to make smart decisions about implementing and using technology," explains Gregg Hawn, a founder of TechnologyGives. With the increased convergence of business and digital technology there has been an emergence of companies globally dedicated to making technology more accessible to those entities with needs. However, there is often a disconnect between companies with the desire and drive to support charitable efforts and the charitable organizations themselves.Identifying those organizations with specific needs and aligning them with the right technology and partners is a challenge. After an organization in need of a technology supplier or advisor has been identified, aligning the right parties and technologies is an ongoing process that often requires consideration of both the immediate and future needs of the organization.
