I recently attended a panel discussion, Mobile Trends and Innovation, that was presented at a cool nonprofit art event called Artomatic in Arlington, Virginia.

In January 2012, 8.5 percent of web access was via a mobile device (compared to 4.3 percent in 2011 and 1.7 percent in 2010). Note that this statistic does not include tablets – just mobile phones. In 2011 in the U.S., 47 percent of mobile phone owners used their devices to access the Web, which is also a rising trend.Given the growth in access the Web via mobile devices, the panelists (especially Polangin) emphasized the need...

So you get an email message that looks really, really legitimate. There are no typos, the subject matter could easily apply to you or your organization.

As a follow-up to our participation in the Day of Service at the 2010 Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC), I am posting an excerpt of our slide presentation. Our project was to work with an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization and identify technologies and strategies for them to begin receiving online donations. The crux of our presentation was focused on donation systems that we felt were the right fit for the specific organization we were helping. The part of our presentation that was focused on marketing donation systems is posted on Slide Share where you can view it.
