In today’s world, efficient technology can help nonprofits make a greater impact in their communities. Unfortunately, too often organizations face challenges in this area and are not adequately using the technology available to them to their advantage.
Plan IT is a technology-focused action-learning program (sponsored by Microsoft Philanthropies) that transforms how nonprofits approach their tech and incorporate it into their day-to-day operations. 501 Commons seeks volunteers with diverse technology skills and a broad understanding of business technology to serve as Technology Planning Consultants for the fall 2016 cohort.

- Learn about planning and decision-making processes
- Increase an organization's understanding of their technology needs
- Make a difference in the nonprofit community's ability to utilize technology to their advantage
