A natural disaster may never hit your office, but by adopting certain technologies and strategies, you can deepen your nonprofit's impact and make your work faster and more efficient. The resources in this toolkit will not only prepare you for a crisis, but also deepen the impact of your nonprofit or charity in times of health.
