Online giving increased 7.9 percent in the three-month period ending in April 2014 for U.S. charities, according to TheNonProfitTimes.com. That comes as a great relief to many as the same index reported a .07 decline for January to March. Online donations, like everything else, are increasingly becoming the preferred way to transact charitable giving. And as new technologies continue to grow in popularity, charities that embrace solutions like cloud based non profit software will be better equipped to serve their communities and source funding for their efforts.
For example Microsoft Dynamics GP’s non profit software delivers financial management, grant management, reporting and encumbrance management for starters. But the real benefit comes with cloud based non profit software. myGPcloud can deliver Dynamics GP’s core non profit functionality along with the reduced cost and predictable pay as you go price structure of running solution in the cloud.
“By helping us run our business better and more easily, Microsoft Dynamics GP is freeing our time to focus on our mission,” said Chris Keightly, Vice President of IT United Way Worldwide. “Instead of spending all our time to just get the reports out, we can now take a step back and analyze the data.”
