We created the Nonprofit R+D Membership to help nonprofits just like yours to fully utilize online technologies to increase donations, engage their supporters, and better communicate their missions.

We are going to show you how to do all this and more, providing the assistance you need along the way.  Our goal is to let you focus on your organization’s mission while helping you understand how technology can help you achieve it.


Premium Training, Resources, and Support

for Nonprofit Technology Professionals
(or Accidental Techies)

Whether you are an “accidental techie” or a more experienced online professional, we will help you excel and take your online presence to the next level.

Engaging and Informative Technology Training

We cover the technology issues that matter the most to small- and medium-sized nonprofit organizations through engaging and interactive webinars, audio lessons, articles, and video trainings.

Each month you’ll receive the most up-to-date insights and technical training to help you improve your organization’s online presence and further your organization’s mission.

Whether it’s basic strategies around email marketing or more technical instructions on launching a blog, Nonprofit R+D will provide you with the best technology training each and every month.

Here’s a quick look at the types of training you’ll have access to as soon as you become a member:

Articles:
No matter what your skill level, you’ll find a wide variety of fresh new articles every month designed to help you improve your organization’s online presence.

Live Trainings:
Each month you’ll be able to attend live webinars on various topics including online fundraising, email marketing, and social media. We also encourage members to suggest and vote on the topics they want to cover in more depth!

Video Trainings:
Sometimes it’s just easier to see a task worked from start to finish, which is why we also provide a library of step-by-step video tutorials. Examples of videos include setting up WordPress and getting more followers on Twitter.

Audio Lessons:
Need something good to listen to in the car during your morning commute? We have you covered with downloadable MP3 audio lessons and expert interviews. We even convert most of the live webinars into MP3 files so you can listen to them on your iPod or MP3 player no matter where you are.

Question and Answer  Sessions:
Have a burning question about online technologies but don’t know who to ask? Our Q&A sessions are a great time to hop on and ask any and all questions you have about online technology. These sessions feature guest experts as well as the Nonprofit R+D staff.

Multiple Formats:
As noted above, our training materials include articles, webinars, recorded videos, downloadable MP3’s, and online chats. So no matter how you prefer to learn, we have you covered. We even record all our live webinars so you can watch them whenever you want and even refresh your memory if you need to review a skill or technique.

Online Technology Tools and Resources

It sometimes seems that every day brings a new tool, social media site, or strategy that everyone says  you “just have to jump on” or you’ll fall behind. With so many tools, technologies, and resources available online, it can be overwhelming and difficult to figure out which ones are worth your time.

This is where Nonprofit R+D members have an advantage. We spend our days researching, evaluating, and testing all these resources and we’ll not only tell you the ones we recommend, but show you how to use them effectively as well, saving you tons of time, money, and aggravation.

Here’s a look at the types of resources you find inside:

Nonprofit R+D Resource Guide:
A constantly updated list of our recommended resources, including books, software, websites, and tools. We give you the inside scoop on why we like and recommend the resource as well as tutorials on how to use each one well. Since we’ve worked in nonprofits ourselves and know how precious resources can be, we conduct special searches for free or low-cost resources, saving you $1,000’s of dollars. The savings detailed in the resource guide alone could easily pay for your membership to Nonprofit R+D for years to come.

Download Library:
An ever growing library of downloadable resources, including ebooks, templates, tip sheets, and task lists.

Member Showcase:
This is a great way to get ideas and inspiration for your projects.  Members can choose to apply for our Member Showcase program. As part of this program, we select member websites and campaigns from the pool of applicants and both highlight their great ideas and offer helpful analysis about items that could be improved, thus providing a free one-on-one consultation!

Free publications:
As a member, you’ll get free copies of any digital publications we produce while you are a member. These include ebooks, templates, special trainings, or video courses. While others will have to pay full retail price for these items, you will receive them free just for being a member.

Discounts for consulting and service packages:
All members get special pricing for one-on-one consultations and the option to purchase “Member’s Only” services packages. These packages are designed to give you extra assistance while working through the training materials, and are only available to current members.


Support and Community

The true value of the Nonprofit R+D membership can be seen not only from the expertise, ideas, and insights shared by our experienced staff, but also those shared by other members who are addressing the same types of issues you are facing now.

Every member is actively working in small- to medium-sized nonprofit organizations just like you. You will be able to connect, share, and learn from each other, in a way that is not always possible in every town. Being an accidental techie or a nonprofit webmaster does not have to be a lonely venture.
