Grassroots Organizations and Technology
I recentlyOrganizers Collaborative was founded in 1999 to develop resources to assist smaller community organizations with technology. Small nonprofits have chronic difficulties using technology, even though computer hardware had become extremely affordable.
Working with others interested in addressing this problem, Rich Cowan convened the founding meetings of Organizers' Collaborative (OC) in 1999. In July of 2000, Organizers' Collaborative gained 501(c)(3) status. Operating initially as a volunteer-based organization with only part-time staffing, OC has expanded into a nationally recognized technology resource that now reaches thousands of non-profits and community groups.
The mission of OC is to develop low-cost, replicable technology, software, and trainings that meet the organizing, outreach, and fundraising needs of small nonprofits. The organization is comprised of community organizers and technology consultants dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations and community groups integrate technology into their work. The following is a list of topics with tips for organizations.
