Digital Technology in the Not-for-Profit Sector

How does your not-for-profit compare?

I'd like to know more

The Digital Technology in the Not-for-Profit Sector survey is back for 2022! The survey aims to better understand how not-for-profit organisations across Australia and New Zealand are using technology, so that as a sector we can recognise the areas of growth and where improvement is needed.

Now in its seventh year, the survey provides the sector's most comprehensive view of technology use including information systems, staff capability, security, online presence and emerging technologies.

Find out more below, or get started now:


Why take the survey?

Your input will help us all better understand how our sector is using technology, especially in light of the challenges that COVID-19 brought in the last two years. We'll be able to see what the sector is doing well and what we should be working to improve.

You'll also be able to benchmark your organisation against other not-for-profits to ensure you’re using technology in the best way possible to achieve your mission.

Your input will help the Infoxchange Group to focus our efforts on strengthening and improving the ways our sector uses technology. And of course, you’ll go in the draw to win some great prizes – more details below.

Who can take the survey & what you'll need

You can take this survey if you work for a not-for-profit/charitable organisation that operates in Australia or New Zealand and you have a good understanding of how your organisation uses technology, including:

  • the systems and software you use
  • your information security and data protection practices
  • your online presence
  • your devices and infrastructure
  • informed estimates (if not precise figures) of your:
    • total operating budget
    • total IT spend (preferably broken down into PCs, infrastructure, external support, IT staff salaries, training, website, core applications and data network links if possible - but not essential)
    • total number of employees (full-time equivalent or FTE)

If you don't quite have all this information, you can still take part - just select "don't know" for anything you're not sure about, or even better check in with your colleagues to get the answers you need.
