“I have been a fan of Idealware—personally and recommending it to others—for the better part of my last ten years in the foundation world. It’s one of the absolute best resources available to nonprofits of all stripes.”

-Mark Walker, Jessie Ball duPont Fund

Nonprofit leaders are conservationists, homebuilders, and early childhood educators. They counsel people in need and curate art exhibits. They spread good ideas and advocate for real change. Nonprofit leaders are you—passionate, diversely talented people who make life better in communities everywhere.

To do all this work you likely need a lot of technology tools—computers, email, calendaring, file storage, a constituent database, communications platforms, and much more. But chances are your passions don’t include technology. That’s where Idealware comes in.

We’re a nonprofit that puts technology at the heart of our mission. We help you make smart technology decisions so that you’re able to do your best work on a limited budget.

Idealware, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, provides impartial, thoroughly-researched, and easy-to-understand resources to help nonprofits use technology to create greater social impact in our communities. Idealware’s publications, assessments, and training can save you time and money by providing guidance that gives you the knowledge and confidence you need to decide what’s best for your organization.

We don’t do consulting and we don’t offer any technology products of our own. But we do collaborate with nonprofit technology experts to uncover and synthesize vast amounts of original research so that you can focus more of your time on what matters most—your organization’s mission.
