Helpful tools for nonprofits


When you’re that budding nonprofit, every little bit of help counts. Free coffee from your local barista just for being one of the good guys or free hot dogs from your favorite Coney Island, just because they see how hard you’re working and they want to show their support for your nonprofit fundraising event. Every little bit helps. Same goes for tools, apps and online services. Just take a look around and see what’s out there. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that there are more than enough helpful tools out there to turn your nonprofit into a Swiss Army knife of efficiency. Below are some helpful tools for nonprofits:
