SF Bay Area Technology Survey

The Latino Issues Forum offers a fewpublications. One of which I just mentioned in a meeting and thought might be interesting more broadly: (fair warning: .pdf) The Online Civic Engagement Project: Assessing the Technology Needs and Interest of Latino-serving Non-Profits in the SF Bay Area. This was released in March, 2004.

I continue to find it interesting that, for nonprofits, the number one technology need is money. It is, quite simply, a barrier of dollars. I'm interested in understanding how, more and more, nonprofits can turn the thinking from a dollars/purchasing model to a resources model. And then provide services to meet those resource needs.
