Part of the process of selecting the right technology for your organization is making sure the product or service you select has what you need, and performs its task well. Sites that provide reviews can help. Also, here is a presentation about some great free nonprofit tech tools, and a few tips on how to start the selection process.
And no matter what type of software you’re reviewing, be sure to ask if the provider offers any nonprofit discounts.
TIP: Many products have free or reduced-cost versions for nonprofits, but sometimes you have to ask.
If you find technology with great reviews that sounds like a perfect fit for your organization, but it doesn’t have a free version, consider doing a quick search for “nonprofit pricing [product name],” or searching the products site for a nonprofit pricing page. If they don’t have one, you can still email them and see if discounts are available. They aren’t always listed directly.
