What types of software should your nonprofit be using? It's hard to even know even what types exist, let alone what might work for you. Through a friendly, easy-reference format, this book helps you pinpoint the types of software that can help your organization based on your needs and your level of technology savvy, and provides user-friendly summaries to demystify all the possible options. The 144-page Field Guide includes an overview of 58 different types of software, helping you to understand what each is, how it fits in with your needs, how much you might expect to pay, and some of the most common vendors in the area. In this new 2011 version, we've added more than 20 new types of systems, taking the Field Guide beyond the realm of simply Fundraising, Marketing, and Outreach to cover the entire realm of software that's likely to be of interest to a broad range of nonprofits.
