  • Funding Struggles:

Finding funding and sponsorship

Increase org capacity to fundraising

Eager to fund tech by funders; but no sustained funding

technology not easy to update

get money for development platform side

tech development in house vs paying

digital literacy for low-wage workers; how can we get a grant

  • Things to Consider:
    • Bake tech into programmatic activities, not as a seperate silo
    • Role-techmanager - decision maker at organization to help navigate tech decisions, someone familiar with your work and technology, not necesssarily developer or IT
    • Multiple partners - collaboration pays
    • Tech programming from a leadership development perspective
      • Digital literacy
      • digital security
      • language
      • youth
