Members include Joe Baker, Executive Director of the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network (N-TEN); nonprofit technology strategist Michael Stein; and Ami Dar, Executive Director of Idealist.org.Of course, the focus is on software and technology for US nonprofits, but if the various conferences and discussion forums are anything to go by, there is clearly a need for a version for the UK sector. New product comparison site on software for US nonprofitscenter_img Howard Lake | 18 October 2005 | News American nonprofit organisations are shortly to benefit from Idealware, a new website that will provide “candid consumer-reports-style reviews and articles about software of interest to nonprofits.”The site, provided by an organisation currently seeking nonprofit status itself, will offer product comparisons, recommendations, case studies, and software news. It aims to “allow nonprofits to make the software decisions that will help them be more effective”.The site is of course fairly empty at present, but promises much. It already features the results of a survey of 263 nonprofit technology staff members into how they feel about their organisation’s use of software. There is also a blog with news and views on technology for nonprofits. There is also the promise later this month of a report into the various online donation tools available for nonprofits.

Workers and oppressed people of the world, write to us!

first_imgWorkers World recently received these two letters from friends in Bangladesh and Europe.Dear Comrades,Let me deliver revolutionary greetings to you and your party. I’m from Bangladesh. You’re passing a transitional period of struggle and mass uprising. I would like to proclaim solidarity from the heart of the people of Bangladesh to the heroic movement of U.S people against oppression, exploitation and injustice.By this time you have to face your national election too. The ruling class will try to avail of the election to get rid of this people’s power. Like the whole world, Bangladeshis are also very curious about your national election. As expected, the media is busy telecasting the speeches of the two leading capitalist parties. Some of them even announced the Democratic Party as a pro-left organization. Though we know how fake this propaganda is by our past experiences.In the meantime I’ve noticed your editorial headed “Not being Trump is not enough” published in the current issue (Aug 27) as your [Democratic National Convention] evaluation. I’ve translated it into Bengali, our mother-tongue, and sent you a copy here.I would like to publish it in a Bengali news portal so our people know the working-class voice of the U.S, if you allow. I expect it will be helpful to strengthen the working-class solidarity of different regions.I’m waiting for your kind reply. Red salute.Sincerely yours,Rashib RahmanFormer Organizing Secretary, Socialist Students’ FrontBangladesh_____Dear Editors,I welcome this article by Greg Dunkel on the situation to date in Martinique about environmental poisoning. The article is going straight to Martinique via Paris, where it will do so much to buoy up the spirits of our brothers and sisters there. Ninety-two percent of the population – men, women and children – are already contaminated.With no known antidote except activism, they need to know they have our unmitigated support.Thanks again for giving their voices a platform!Ona Move,Julia WrightEurope FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
