Mission

Our vision is a thriving nonprofit sector in which all organizations have access to the best technology resources and know-how and can apply these tools to help create healthy, vibrant, thriving communities. Our mission is to ensure all nonprofits can use technology to better serve their communities. Our goal is to reduce the challenge of managing and using technology so that nonprofits can focus on what they do best - feeding the homeless, tending to the sick, teaching children to read, and saving the environment.

Cloud Computing Migration

While everyone talks about cloud computing, we think that there is a little bit more to the story.  Cloud computing provides a real opportunity for nonprofits to reduce their IT capital investments and improve delivery by making an important change in your technology infrastructure – moving hardware and even software from your offices to the Internet.  With cloud computing, some hardware can be leased rather than purchased, and relatively cheap terminals can be substituted for expensive desktop computers, reducing capital costs.

IT for Healthcare ProvidersCommunity healthcare providers, particularly Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), face real challenges when it comes to making the most of technology. Providers must adhere to complicated HIPAA privacy guidelines while reporting to multiple funders on disparate systems – all on a very limited budget. These organizations are typically spread out across several sites and located in parts of the city or county where Internet access is both limited and expensive. 501cTech has extensive experience in working with all types and sizes of nonprofit healthcare providers, with a particular expertise in evaluating, selecting, negotiating, and managing vendor relationships. We work with each client to develop a technology roadmap that incorporates the best of what new technology like cloud computing can offer. Equally important is the reliable and cost-effective delivery of these ongoing services.

Third Party Software Selection501cTech provides assistance in choosing the best third-party software solution for such applications as customer relationship management (CRM), financial management, electronic medical records, and case management systems.

When it comes to understanding technology needs, the best place to start for many nonprofits is with a technology assessment and plan.  501cTech assessments provide practical advice for nonprofit decision makers, including technology solutions, timelines, and cost estimates for implementation.  While we have a well-established methodology that incorporates technology industry best practices, we also take into account YOUR needs, your budget, and your organization’s unique culture.  We do both tactical and strategic assessments and create plans for nonprofits of all sizes and mission areas.  In addition to receiving a written report from us, you will also get a thoughtful explanation and detailed recommendations – delivered in plain, straight-forward language.  We do this work for individual nonprofits, as well as for foundations and other funder groups.
