The instability of today’s economic climate calls for non-profit organizations to approach social problems in new and interesting ways, and Information and Communication Technologies may serve as an answer to this call.

ICT Management in Non-Profit Organizations aims to explore the effective and comprehensive deployment of appropriate ICT strategies within the nonprofit sector. This innovative reference work will discuss how ICT enables the non-profit sector to achieve organizational efficiency, effectiveness, and, ultimately, self sufficiency, and will provide elected and appointed policymakers, managers, and planners in governments, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations with a comprehensive strategy for creating an ICT management agenda in the non-profit sector.
