Non- profits organizations can look like churches, pregnancy centers, after school programs, library’s, food drives, clothes drives, homeless shelters, battered women shelters, the list is endless. The ins and outs of nonprofit organizations vary depending on the organization. Which is why it is also imperative that non-profits can secure the IT side of their organizations.
