Non-profits are using emerging web 2.0 tools and you should too

It should come as no surprise. The buzz about Web 2.0 tools and software-as-a-service (SaaS) has been caught and non-profits are adopting them. That's the gist of the recent article in IT Business

In fact, there are a lot of ready-to-use software-as-a-service (SaaS) products on the market to meet the needs of a non-profit. Online donation tools for example are great for organizations that don't want to deal with setting up their website and server.

One great advantage of software-as-a-service (SaaS) (Wild Apricot being an example of such a service) is that they deliver ease and affordability online to non-profits. They help organizations in their quest to create a web site, register participants, increase attendance to events and run more efficiently.

Another reason these tools are a good fit is because they allow employees and volunteers alike to use them from home or office and spares the often volunteer-staffed organizations the work of installing and upgrading software packages.

So who’s out there leading the way and taking advantage of this new and exciting Web 2.0 tool?
The Association of Internet Marketing and Sales (AIMS) and a grassroots community called UsabilityCamp are doing great work.Both organizations used Wild Apricot’s web-based tools to maintain their web site, register participants for events, maintain membership lists and send out electronic mailings.

Does anyone else know other great organizations taking advantage of Web 2.0?
