Nonprofit web accessibility – a recap from experts.

You already understand the value of investing in a quality website. Unfortunately, many nonprofits don’t understand the value in ensuring their website is accessible. For many nonprofits, (whether they know it or not) it is already mandatory and for the rest, it soon will be.

According to FMJ Law, “if your organization receives federal financial assistance such as grants or loans, it is also subject to section 504.” Just a reminder, Section 504 entails no one can be discriminated against based on a disability. This also means any major activities an organization has must be adapted so that all people can participate. Learn more with this breakdown of the law

When it comes to your website, this means it needs to be navigable for people with disabilities.

To understand more on what this means for you, we held an event, “The Human, Design, and Legal Implications of Web Accessibility,” last March and have since, gathered the presentations. Here’s what we have.

4 fundraising metrics to start prioritizing (and 4 to stop worrying about) [Infographic]

Fundraising can be all-consuming for your nonprofit. Yes, it’s all about the cause, but we also know how much of a nonprofit’s day-to-day functioning revolves around a budget.

A common temptation is to put all your energy to continue to grow this budget, but a wise guy once said, “you are what you measure.” When it comes to fundraising, measurement matters.

Knowing this, a recent email subject line caught my attention, “Fundraising Metrics You Should Care About.” It made me pause, as it seems like there’s sometimes too many numbers to track – could we be overlooking some of them?

The headline was from Brady at re:charity. His post featured four metrics nonprofits often waste their time on and then four that are often neglected. If you take the latter four and really study them, this could have a great impact on your nonprofit long term.

We decided to take this post and illustrate the points through an infographic. See the full infographic by clicking on the preview below – Fundraising Metrics Your Nonprofit Should Care More About:
