IT Services and Support for Non-Profits

The Catalyst for Greater NFP Efficiency and Outcomes

As global challenges increase, funding models and preferences shift, and governments reduce their support, Not For Profits (NFPs) are vital to bridging many societal gaps. However, post covid, over 75% of nonprofits expect decline in funding and 69% of nonprofits believe transparency and trust to be a dominant factor for donors (Nonprofit Times, CCS Fundraising report).

Silver Tree believes the key to generating donations is by providing transparency of impact, and by leveraging well-stewarded structured, and unstructured data, in order to build a high-quality pipeline.


A conversation between Sarah Angel-Johnson, CIO, Year Up and Tony Doye, EVP, Silver Tree (previously COO at Girl Scouts USA) on the challenges CIO’s in the NFP sector face today and how IT drives mission-impacting results.

85% of nonprofits say:

Technology is the key to the success of their organizations, and those with fully aligned strategies supported by data are more likely to succeed. However, while many have begun the journey of digital transformation, only 23% have a long term vision. Many are still behind, for a range of reasons.*
