Managing a nonprofit isn’t easy, and a lot of people don’t realize the unique problems that come with the territory.
- Filing information
- Organizing Donations
- Recruiting volunteers
- Holding board meetings
- Managing program operations
These are just a few of the tasks that nonprofits deal with day in and day out.

Common Concerns in Nonprofits (That We Can Help Fix!)
This is actually an area of concern for a lot of organizations, nonprofit or not.
However, it differs a little for nonprofits because they typically work with outdated systems and software. Poor or insufficient software can cause a domino effect that eventually leads to issues with reporting, fundraising, and management.

Growing a worthy cause can be tiresome when you’re constantly spending precious resources and funds on using paper and ink, plus the associated costs.
Not only are you losing money, but you’re also losing time when you have to search through file cabinets for a certain document. And don’t even mention the problems that arise when an important file goes missing, or the printer is broken.

Having human resources is scarce in the nonprofit sector, as many organizations rely on volunteers for a lot of work. This makes it difficult to disseminate information, and consistently.
Training, sharing pertinent information, and providing materials can be complicated when you have team members out in the field or who work full-time and volunteer for your organization on the side.
In addition, you have short-term volunteers coming in all the time. So you have to constantly give information to newcomers.
The Inspiris Solution
Sharing information doesn’t have to be difficult, nor does it require you to actually be in the same place as those you want to inform.
With the right cloud computing software you can make your resources, like training manuals or monthly reports, completely accessible to those who need it.
