About this book (from the press release) -
By not incorporating new technology into daily operations, your organization risks not only being outdated, but also being unable to function in today's computer centered work and home environment. ---Robbin Zeff
The technology that was once known only to the largest companies has now become commonplace in businesses and organizations of all sizes. Today, as Americans are creating and joining the over 900,000 voluntary associations that now exist in the United States, they are also the majority of the estimated 30 million Internet users worldwide.
Nonprofit organizations need to become knowledgeable of the resources available to them on the Internet. The Nonprofit Guide to the Internet by Robbin Zeff is devoted specifically to the relationship between nonprofits and the Internet.
It explains how going on-line enables nonprofits to be more efficient and effective. By using the Internet, a nonprofit organization can both expand access to its services and build its community of donors. The Internet provides incredible access to to information from around the world, can be an exciting new fund-raising medium, and enhances an organization's ability to communicate with its members, its staff, and the general public.
The Nonprofit Guide to the Internet includes:
The Nonprofit Guide to the Internet is not a "how to" primer covering the technical nuts and bolts of the Internet. Rather, it examines the specific interests and organizational considerations of the nonprofit community to show how the Internet can be a positive addition to any group's operations. It demonstrates why and shows how nonprofit professionals must lead their organizations onto the information superhighway sooner rather than later.
Robbin Reff, Ph.D., is President of The Zeff Group. Based in Arlington, VA. The Zeff Group specializes in strategic Internet planning and training for organizations and businesses. Considered one of the leaders in the emerging field of cyber-fundraising, The Zeff Group consults with nonprofit organizations on how they can maximize their revenue-generating potential through use of the Internet.
