Your nonprofit is connected to the Internet in one way or another. Whether it’s through your nonprofit’s website, email address, social media presence, or even a listing on CanadaHelps, your information can be found online.

This is why it’s crucial for nonprofits to understand computer security threats and learn how to protect themselves.

How a Good CRM Implementation Can Propel Your Nonprofit

Many nonprofits are stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) systems.

On the other, CRM takes a lot of time and resources to implement and maintain.
