Digital activity supporting overall business strategy for just a third of charities

first_img“The survey findings show that we have reached a new level of digital maturity within the not for profit sector at a stage where it is something obtainable and achievable for all. It’s certainly a challenging time for many within the sector but it is encouraging to see so many organisations taking a closer look at how technology could help them get the most from their critical fundraising activities at a time when they need it more than ever.”  136 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Only 32% of not for profit organisations say that their digital activity supports their overall business strategy, according to a report from The Access Group.The Access Group’s Not for Profit software division surveyed 254 decision makers and workers in fundraising, marketing or communications in not-for-profit organisations for its State of Digital Maturity Report and that found nearly half of survey respondents only have a link between digital and overall organisational strategies for activities such as fundraising.In addition, over a third of UK charities say digital maturity is still very much a work in progress within their organisations, with 43% of respondents in senior management positions stating their digital maturity was where they wanted or expected it to be.With figures from the Chartered Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and Charity Finance Group (CFG) predicting that charities could face a £12.4 billion shortfall this year due to the impact of Covid-19, digital strategist, Ian Patterson who worked alongside The Access Group on the report, believes digital maturity will play a key role in stemming that shortfall.He said: “Digital maturity is a term used to describe an organisation’s adoption of digital technologies and processes into their strategies as well as how well they respond to key digital trends affecting their sector. For years, many in the not for profit sector have been slow to adopt technology, with mounting financial pressures meaning tech has often had to take a backseat, especially for smaller organisations.“The fact that many UK charity and not for profit organisations have not yet aligned their digital strategies with their organisational strategies is certainly worrying. As the emphasis on digital grows within these organisations, the importance of alignment is only going to become ever more important as the sector continues to adjust to the pressures of Covid-19.“However, this report does demonstrate an evolution in the approach and attitudes towards digital strategies by many. Indeed, in 2020 it’s great to see that the vast majority of not for profits do have either an I.T. and/or digital strategy but it’s clear more work still needs to be done.”Simon Baines, Managing Director of Access Not for Profit, added: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Digital activity supporting overall business strategy for just a third of charitiescenter_img Melanie May | 22 October 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

It’s a lofty goal but Five Acres is up to the task. Since premiering the campaign in 2014, Five Acres has been able to secure more than 1,365 permanent families for children in foster care. The campaign has increased the recruitment of parents by 79% and the overall campaign continues to bring much needed awareness to the crisis that is the LA County foster care system.Five Acres CEO Chanel Boutakidis shares, “After just one year we have been able to help 1,365 children discharge to permanency. The largest numbers were because of our prevention and intervention efforts. Children were able to stay safely with their biological family and did not enter the foster care system to begin with. Although the number of inquiries and those starting the certification process to become a foster parent has doubled, our greatest challenge continues to be the need to recruit many more; both foster and adoptive families. Although our numbers have increased we still need more. Many more! We need to do better if we want permanency for the 20,000 children. We need to continue to rally for change in our communities. If you want to learn more about how you can get involved, please visit our website or call Five Acres today.”The event featured complimentary wine, signature cocktails; lime green, “appletinis” and custom-designed salami and cheese “clip boards,” butternut squash fritters, pear, blue cheese, fig chutney and pistachio crostata with honey drizzle and mushroom vilos, from City Fare Catering.Link to 2015 Permanency Video and Girl 5A: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Milplg6rb3oFor interviews with Five Acres CEO, Chanel Boutakidis, please contact [email protected] learn more about Cross Campus Pasadena visit www.crosscampus.us/locations/pasadena.About Five AcresFive Acres is a child and family services agency strengthening families and preventing child abuse through treatment and education in community-based and residential programs.
