Why Your Website Technology Is Hindering Your Online Fundraising and Awareness
Why Your Website Technology Is Hindering Your Online Fundraising and Awareness

What You Should Know

Website building1. How do most nonprofits build their websites?
a. Most nonprofits build and maintain their websites using a Content Management System (CMS). There are at least 200 Content Management Systems used by nonprofits. Three of the most popular are WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla.
b. All CMSs work essentially as the name implies. They enable you to manage the content of your website -- typically that includes text, images, and links, if you are lucky, maybe a bit more. If the main thing you want your site to do is display information, then a CMS may work just fine for you.

Website growth2. How should you build your website so you can get the best results from it?
a. If you would like your site to draw more traffic, raise more money, be more interactive, and do many other types of transactions, no CMS will enable you to do all of that. Fortunately a new generation of technology can. It’s called a Functionality Management System.

3. What are the advantages of an FMS over a CMS?
a. As easily as a CMS enables you to manage your site’s content, a good FMS will enable you to also manage your site’s functionality, design, navigation, SEO, reporting, security, administration, and every other aspect of your site.
b. If your site was built using a CMS such as the ones mentioned above, and you don’t know those tools, you will be unable to maintain your website. Even if you do know, say WordPress, you probably only know it up to a certain point. If you want to make changes to your website that are beyond your knowledge, you either need to hire outside help, or more likely, they simply will not get done. A good FMS enables, you, or anyone without technical skills or even training to easily maintain every aspect of your website – often through simple point-and-click.

Website globe4. Where can you get information about available FMSs?
a. Here are some places where you can get information on website tools for nonprofits:
    i. Tech Soup, based near San Francisco, is a valuable repository of information pertaining to nonprofits’ use of the Internet. This includes information about various website tools, platforms, and vendors.
    ii. Nonprofit Matrix:  NonProfit Matrix as the name implies, is a matrix of tools and vendors to meet nonprofits’ IT needs.

What Should You NOT Do?

1. Don’t use a CMS to build or maintain your website – or worse, program it in a raw code such as HTML.

What You SHOULD Do

1. Use an FMS to build and maintain your site.
2. Actively use the various features of your FMS to manage all aspects of your site, including functionality, design, navigation, SEO, reporting, security, administration, etc.
3. Suggest enhancements to your FMS vendor, and learn/use the new enhancements as they are released.
4. Use your FMS to build a site that not only has a lot for the visitor to SEE, but also a lot for them to DO – so you can build awareness, engagement, and revenue.

Online fundraising is a way for nonprofit organizations to raise money via the internet. It usually involves an online donation page and can include mobile giving, peer-to-peer fundraising, and more. Online fundraising is a powerful source of revenue. In fact, 7.1% of overall fundraising revenue, excluding grants, was raised online in 2015, according to Blackbaud's 2015 Charitable Giving Report. The report also found: Online giving was up 9.2%

I respect myself, my decision and a man I am going to be with, will be my choice till the rest of my life. I am looking for a man who is ready to settle down and ready to take such an important decision as marriage, a man who is confident enough fort his life settlement because marriage is not a small decision but it’s our life. A kind, honest, caring and loving heart can build a happy family but a small misunderstanding and weakness can completely destroy a family. And I would prefer a strong and understanding man to take this life decision seriously as Bangalore escorts


I think it is important to mention this from the beginning, and about me. I am a healthy woman with creative nature, who will wait for you after work with a caring, warm heart and tasty dinner. What can be more pleasant than this? May be seeing my husband standing on the threshold with a bouquet of roses. We would not even talk to any stranger if we don’t know them and here people are doing marriage with someone they have met only once or twice. That's ridiculous.


More about me, I am a fun loving girl who easily connects with everyone. I am looking for a partner with whom I can hang out and can get to know each other as Bangalore escort agency. Well, I am looking for a long term relationship it's not necessary but I want to go for a serious relationship. I can and I will make time for the right person.


I can’t even express how happy I am to be a wonder mother and respectful woman. If you are interested in a serious relationship, I am ready, I have taken my decision to start a family. I am sensual, aggressive in bed and unique. An exotic Bangalore call girl who loves her clients and who always wants to give everyone the maximum pleasure. An orgasm hunter, the mayor of the city of sex, a woman with many faces: lover, girlfriend, luxury Bangalore Independent Escorts, passive slave, porn star of your imagination.


I am a graceful and sensual lady escort offering a charming blend of intellect and humour, warm and playful, with sweet and brave spirit, who like to receive and offer pleasure. I am available for session of many different kind and duration. I live for excitement and the thrill of the new fantasies. Don't wait any longer to start an adventure with me however long or brief it may be my pleasure to make you happy with my escort skills.


I have a long list of escort services and happily offer you without a rush. My easy going personality will make you feel comfortable with showing my your wild side later. I am your ultimate  girl escort. You can request specific styles or outfits if you have something in particular that you like to see your escort in when you take them out. All you need to do is make these clear to me when you are fixing an appointment with Bangalore escort services.
