Non-Profits Should Take Advantage of Free Help From Tech CompaniesRamon Ray
Non-profits always get discounted or free help. However, in these VERY challenging times, non-profits might snag some extra special deals from companies, especially if they’re mission is related to helping during the Covid19 shelter in place circumstances.
There’s a lot of companies helping non-profits, one is Zoho who is focused on not only giving their tools and services for free or at a discount but also HELPING to build solutions for these deserving organizations.
One big need of companies is to track and record the staff or supplies coming or going from their organization, record keeping is essential.
I’m surprised at the number of small business owners who don’t have a proper database for their customers (or employees) and just rely on a spreadsheet. That’s not enough.
If you’re a non-profit, you’re not alone. Many companies, especially larger ones are donating to help you.
“We are so grateful to all the workers who are helping us weather this storm,” said Sridhar Vembu, Zoho co-founder and CEO. “Beyond those on the front lines, there are workers in industries who are struggling, who are persevering, who are inventing new paths forward. The Vertical Relief Plan is a way to support those people, whether they be teachers, government workers, or retailers, who are entirely committed to helping others and returning the world to solid ground.”
