Non-profits face so many challenges in their daily work – that shouldn’t include managing their IT. Tektonic will take care of your IT for you at a simple, cost-effective rate.
Non-profits struggle with many challenges that traditional enterprise-based corporations do not, given that they often operate on the bare minimum of resources, staff, and volunteers.
While you’re grateful for every last person who gives of their time, talent, and treasures to assist your efforts, they don’t always have all of the skill sets you need to successfully run the operation. This often means that you have to pick up the slack – and while you are happy to help, you have limitations yourself.
Non-profits, like all businesses, run best when they have people heading each department that are experts in their fields.
That’s not easy to come by when you are dependent on volunteer labor and have a small budget. More than that, you have a lot of places you need your money – and personnel – to go. Unfortunately, technology and IT employees are sometimes the last things to be considered in the budget.
That means that non-profits like yours often run into the same challenges:
- Finance: Every dollar you spend on IT is a dollar you can’t devote towards your purpose as non-profit. That means every dollar (no matter how few) has to count.
- People: It can be difficult to hire expert team members when other industries offer larger salaries, better hours, and more benefits.
- Mobile: Staying mobile means investing in new technology, and refreshing it every few years – that takes time (and, again, money).
The reality is that non-profits need technology to function optimally. Unfortunately, you are often stuck limping along with outdated systems that just don’t meet your needs. When they go down altogether, it can be incredibly frustrating as it is one more thing added to your to-do list that you just don’t have the time or the expertise to handle.

“When we have a problem, we pick up the phone, we call Tektonic, there’s a live person there that can walk you through it,” says Colleen Gouldson, CEO of Nottawasaga Futures. “I learn so much from them because you’re a part of the process when you’re troubleshooting. It’s been really great!”.
Nottawasaga Futures is one of 61 community Futures organizations operating in the Ontario non-profit sector today. They provide financial support to businesses that need assistance in starting up or expanding, as well as business coaching, mentorship, and consulting.
On top of overseeing both these aspects of Nottawasaga Futures, CEO Colleen Gouldson has to ensure that their IT systems are working properly, even though they don’t have much of a budget for it. Given that they are non-profit, every dollar counts, which can make IT support a difficult investment.
“I trust Jorge, which is incredibly important,” says Colleen. “Jorge is my main contact, and he will call me and say, ‘This is what you absolutely need to do’ and ‘This is what’s going to be needed but you can wait’, etc. I’ll say, ‘Jorge, this is how much money I have to work with, can you save me any?’ and he will do it”.
