Each year, thousands of immigrants move to new communities across North America. While this can be a challenging transition, libraries are a great source of information where immigrants can find local resources to help them settle in. Asset mapping is one strategy libraries can use to collect local resources that can aid immigrants in their transition to the community. If your library is interested in learning how you can implement asset mapping, join Webjunction and TechSoup for a webinar with @hfxpublib on Tuesday, July 17th at 3pm EDT.

"@Urbanstead works to achieve healthy futures by uniting the community and operating programs that directly empower Philadelphia's vulnerable youth," said Lisa Gaidanowicz, Urbanstead's executive director. "Seeking to develop pathways to success through hands-on experiences at our farms, orchard, and farmers markets, we focus on leadership, career development, and healthy choices with all of our participants." As a small nonprofit, Urbanstead is currently unable to hire an accountant or a finance manager. Nonetheless, Lisa needed a clear picture of her organization's finances that was usable within her current staffing capabilities — and she found one. "Acquiring @QuickBooks at a discount has allowed us to better organize our business without the frustration of overspending on a robust accounting tool. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to use this technology at a reduced cost and look forward to a continued partnership with TechSoup," she said. Read their full story - link in bio.

Our interns participated in a #design thinking workshop. They learned how to take a human-centered approach to problem-solving and discussed how to incorporate this into their work at TechSoup and beyond. .

@caravan_studios, a division of @techsoup, helped organize data for a transit app in #Brazil. Community members discussed their transit concerns, focusing on challenges such as “where are bus stops?” and “when do they arrive?” as this information wasn’t clear to the residents of Farroupilha, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Caravan Studios seeks to find solutions on how technology can help solve local issues. They spoke to members of the community and came up with a plan to organize data that could be used by an app called ByBus, powered by crowdsourced information submitted to the cloud.

As the world's human population has grown, so has our demand for fresh water. More drinking water is needed, as are large amounts of water for growing crops, raising livestock, and supporting aquatic life in our lakes, streams, and rivers. Washington Water Trust (WWT) is dedicated to protecting water flows across Washington state. It accomplishes this through a variety of means, most prominently by purchasing or leasing water from water rights holders in order to permanently or temporarily leave the water "instream." It also works with current water rights holders to employ more efficient management of their water, including irrigation best practices and more sustainable (and profitable) crop cycles. Losing data would deeply impact Washington Water Trust's mission to protect streams and rivers at critical times throughout crop and fish migration cycles. From a technical standpoint, the organization uses a "host virtual machine" to power a number of remote devices with computing power. @veritastechllc System Recovery has the capability to provide an efficient backup solution in this scenario. Learn more about the important work Washington Water Trust is doing and how Veritas is helping them to fulfill their mission. Link in bio.

Keep dreaming. Keep doing.

Did you know that @facebook launched a new, free collaborative platform (built for both commercial and #nonprofit organizations) back in 2016? It's called Workplace, and it's sort of like an internal Facebook just for you and your employees and volunteers. It's a separate application from Facebook personal accounts, and it's designed to help teams communicate, share, and make decisions together in a secure and private space online. The premium version of Workplace is normally available for $3 per active user, per month. However, this higher-tiered version — with tons more features — is now available to registered nonprofits at zero cost. We recently attended their Facebook for Good Launch party (pictured here) and had the chance to try out #oculus headsets! To learn more, click link in bio.

This weekend, @netsquared hosted a meetup for #ngos in Illorin, Nigeria. #Nonprofit leaders discussed social media, online fundraising, and important technology tools for 2018!

“SKJAJA is focused on connecting kids in families with limited resources to the community through participation in extracurricular activities. @skjaja4ch bridges the gaps by paying for activities which aren't covered by scholarships and helps students uncover their passions," Co-founder, SKJAJA fund, Charlotte White. She also noted that as a small, grassroots #nonprofit, it would be difficult to access #software without the @intuit Donation Program at TechSoup. Learn more - link in bio.
