Heather Mansfield, founder of Nonprofit Tech for Good, produces the Global NGO Technology Report and the Global Trends in Giving Report. Both reports are sponsored by Funraise, a technology company based in Long Beach, CA that builds fundraising software for nonprofits. The findings from both reports are meant to help NGOs, nonprofits, and charities determine if they are effectively using technology to inspire philanthropy and achieve their mission and programs.
