Only 1 in 4 nonprofits report having a defined strategy for achieving digital readiness, and only about half of those actually have the resources to implement their strategy. Restricted resources, competing priorities, and a lack of guidance mean that nonprofits only spend $1 on technology for every $3 that private companies do--yet we know that tech-savvy nonprofits are 4x more likely to achieve their missions.
95,000 tech professionals in the US have raised their hands on LinkedIn, saying they are interested in joining a nonprofit board. They are a part of a generation of tech workers who want to leverage their expertise and networks for good. But despite this interest, we're missing the connection: very few of them are actually doing it.
With the rapidly maturing field of artificial intelligence (AI), nonprofit organizations are rethinking everything from fundraising to risk management to staffing to the needs of their community. At the same time, tech leaders need purpose and community engagement to help direct their work. We need new voices at the board table to ask the right questions and provide the insights to make strategic and pragmatic decisions--and then help resource and support what needs to be done.
