HOW IT WORKS
HOW IT WORKS
Our self-serve platform is designed by experienced charity and technology professionals who understand the unique needs and challenges of smaller charities. Through our detailed assessment, we’ll build a customized and curated experience for you to help prioritize, plan and understand digital transformation as it applies to your organization — completely free.
The Charity Growth Academy application was designed and developed to mimic a personal consultation with our experts. You will be guided through a series of questions about your organization, provided with customized foundational knowledge to get started, and supported with curated courses and resources to dig deeper. This can be done at your own pace, on your own timeline.
We know that lots of people working in charities are “accidental techies” — those who have taken on technical work out of curiosity or necessity. That’s why the recommendations are easy to follow and build plans around. The addition of curated resources will help your team build the skills you need to drive change within your organization.
Take our detailed assessment, and based on what we learn about your organization, your challenges and your goals, the application will customize your free Action Plan.
Recommendations are customized based on what you tell us in your assessment about how your organization works and where you are in your digital journey.
Each organization will have an admin who can invite collaborators who can work on the Action Plan, and viewers — such as Board members and consultants — who can view the content, access resources and support your organization’s journey.
We understand it can seem like a daunting task, so we’ve made Charity Growth Academy all about making progress over perfection.
Based on your initial assessment, Your Action Plan is customized for your organization and ready for you to work through at your own pace.
Invite Colleagues, Team Members and other collaborators such as your Board, volunteers, senior leaders, or consultants.
You and your team can check of the tasks that you’ve completed, see your progress from your dashboard, and work synchronously and asynchronously.
Leverage your Action Plan to prioritize your digital needs and apply for funding, or as a tool to advocate to your Board for longer-term resource allocation.
We’ve grouped your recommendations into categories, and provide guidance to allow you to focus on the top priorities and channel your efforts.
To allow you to tackle what is manageable, each recommendation has a legend to help prioritize your efforts and inform planning.
You can download the Action Plan recommendations to print, include in Board reports, integrate into strategic plans, or leverage for funding applications.
Your Action Plan includes a full long-term plan and actionable small steps to take to start seeing immediate benefits.
You will need to provide email addresses, create a password and provide a few details.
To ensure your team isn’t duplicating efforts, you can search for your organization and join your team if it already exists or create your organization’s profile.
