HOW NON-PROFITS ARE CAPITALIZING on the TECH SECTOR
Non-profits are evolving with the rapid development and use of mobile apps. However, to tap into this market your non-profit must provide a well-designed and useful app. Be aware that only 20 percent of apps are opened only once. Make sure yours is one that is worth re-opening and capable of maintaining a repeat audience.
A few notably successfully non-profit apps for your reference are:
1. UNITED NATIONS Calendar of Observances – https://unp.un.org/calendar/
The UN Calendar of Observances app provides details of UN observances as well as ways to get involved in related events.
2. SAFE NIGHT – http://www.safenightapp.org
When someone is in urgent need of safe shelter to escape domestic violence, SafeNight enables users to make an immediate donation to pay for a hotel room for the person in need.
3. FOOD SCORES – http://www.ewg.org/foodscores
Environmental Working Group’s Food Scores app is a consumer’s guide to healthy, affordable food that’s good for people and the planet.
4. CHARITY NAVIGATOR – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/charity-navigator/id740191196 This app helps guide intelligent giving by providing ratings for nearly 7,000 charities based on their financial health, accountability and transparency.
5. BLOOD DONOR – http://www.redcross.org/mobile-apps/blood-app
This app enables users to find nearby Red Cross blood drives, schedule appointments and earn rewards from premier retailers.
Non-profits are making a huge difference in not only growing in the tech sector but also using technology in crowdsourcing, becoming more influential by the minute.
