PULLING THE FUTURE FORWARD

HELPING NONPROFITS DO GOOD, BETTER

Within NetHope, The Center for the Digital Nonprofit pulls the future forward so that international nonprofits can do good better.

Through collaboration, we bring together the expertise of the technology sector with the on-the-ground experience of the nonprofit sector to create a foundation for forward-looking organizations to deliver aid, relieve suffering, and build hope. By providing the expertise, resources, tools, guidance, and grantmaking needed for digital transformation, the Center helps nonprofits achieve the efficiency of tomorrow today.

The Center has three areas of focus:

  • People: Our Human Capacity initiative focuses on the skills most needed by leaders and staff at nonprofit organizations.
  • Process: We’re building reference models and benchmarking tools to support Organizational Excellence across the sector.
  • Technology: Our Advanced Technology initiative establishes the best practices, standards, and tools relevant for the critical work of addressing our shared global challenges.

The Digital Nonprofit Ability


Created by The Center for the Digital Nonprofit, the Digital Nonprofit Ability™ (DNA) assessment is a tool to assist organizations to:

  • determine whether they are ready for digital transformation;
  • measure performance against sector benchmarks;
  • and provide insights on relative strengths and weaknesses across six categories: Readiness, People, Process, Technology, Data and Investment.

The DNA assessment sets the industry standard for digital transformation across the NGO sector. We recommend each organization begins their digital transformation journey here. Learn More.

JOIN THE DTX MOVEMENT

Help your organization begin its digital transformation journey by joining a community of forward-looking organizations now realizing the new opportunities, business models, partnerships, products, and services that are possible.

In the short-term consider that even a 10% increase in efficiency through digital transformation will release an additional $4 billion a year in aid resources from the non-profit sector. Long-term, digital leads to less bureaucracy, more target programming, and increased end-user involvement in their own services and rehabilitation.
