ON THE WEB

Where membership and keeping in-touch really matter for non-profits, the Web is there to bridge the gaps Not-for-profits can gain the most from what Content Management Systems and the social internet and web offer. Best of all most of the solutions are free.

Content Management Systems
Everyone experiences membership news deadlines especially around the times of your National Convention(s): ask us about how we can help streamline your document management workflows form client desktop, to lan – to intranet/web…

We will consult you on better IT systems:

• Engagement with your members on the Social Web by asking open ended questions in your Facebook posts and Twitter tweets. Ask the opinions of your members.

• Rewards for your members for following and perhaps participating with/on your tweets and Facebook posts.

• Think outside the box; always be pretending, while you become a dues-paying member, ask yourself could I benefit from knowing this and or following these knowledge threads, posts and tweets.

• Posts and tweets that must remain short, they still should “editorially” tease linking-back to your fully-branded content under your domain control.

We can help your organization use technology to best impact your constituents for synergistic rewards that will help your association achieve bigger, better, and greater things — more efficiently, under budgets and on-time.

Non-Profits defined by Wiki: Colloquially, a 501(c) organization or simply “a 501(c)” is an American tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation or association. Section 501(c) of the United States Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. § 501(c)), provides that 28 types of nonprofit organizations are exempt from some federal income taxes. Sections 503 through 505 set out the requirements for attaining such exemptions. Many states refer to Section 501(c) for definitions of organizations exempt from state taxation as well.

So you’re starting a Non-profit, what is a Nonprofit?
A non-profit organization (abbreviated as NPO, also known as a not-for-profit organization) is an organization that does not distribute its surplus funds to owners or shareholders, but instead uses them to help pursue its goals. Examples of NPOs include charities (i.e. charitable organizations), trade unions and public arts organizations. Most governments and government agencies meet this definition, but in most countries they are considered a separate type of organization and not counted as NPOs. They are in most countries exempt from income and property taxation.
