Non-Profits: The Time to Plan Your IT Budget is Now
Non-profit organizations need to include technology in their budget for 2016. Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) is offering a FREE IT budget session for non-profit organizations.
For many non-profit companies, the fiscal year ends in June or July, so this is the time to create the budget for the coming fiscal year. Clare Computer Solutions (CCS), a professional services firm providing IT solutions for companies in the San Francisco Bay area since 1990, recommends that budgets include addressing the IT needs of non profit organizations. To that end, Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) is offering a FREE one hour IT budget consultation to non-profit organizations.
IT costs for non-profit organizations can be controlled and predictable when steps are taken to properly maintain the IT infrastructure and cycle out aging IT assets in a phased approach.
Here’s how to address thinking about creating a IT budget for your non-profit in 3 manageable steps:
Take stock of what your IT infrastructure is right now. In a small organization, this might be done visually, but generally, it’s much better to utilize a software tool to “discover” what you have, and output that information in a diagram and an accompanying asset list.
Often, the assessment will reveal issues that have to be addressed immediately, and if that’s the case, take steps to repair what’s truly not working. This can ensure your operations are stable and properly running as you address the next step, which is more strategic.
Forget technology for a minute. What are the goals for your organization over next 1, 2, 3 or 5 years? How do you envision the future? Then, compare that vision against your current IT infrastructure and decide how that environment would have to change to accommodate the organization and its operations if those goals are met. How can you ensure your technology will be appropriate for your future needs? You’ll need to create a plan to achieve the change you’ll need, by the time you’ll need it.
For many companies, this type of strategic IT planning and budgeting is not in their skill set. This is the responsibility of a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) or a Chief Information Officer (CIO) – to create a technology roadmap to match the company’s business goals. Clare Computer Solutions provides strategic IT planning, budgeting and consulting to help non-profit organizations just like yours achieve their goals. We can help you, too – Contact firstname.lastname@example.org today to get started!
