Your mission is to build a better world. Ours is to help you succeed.

501 Commons and Tech Impact have teamed up to launch a website dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations adapt their work practices during the COVID-19 situation. Visit preparerespondserve.org for a list of resources and timely updates on how technology can be your friend in dealing with emergencies. We provide guidance on how to prevent work disruptions, and stay connected to files, data, and colleagues while while some or all staff members are working remotely. We also provide advice on management practices and HR policies that support remote work. Sign up for free email updates about technology tools, HR policies, and other practices helpful in pandemic, severe weather conditions, or other emergencies.
