The Struggle For Transparency

The Struggle For Transparency

You run a not-for-profit organisation with the goal of changing lives and yet every day are distracted by the ongoing battle to prove you're doing what you say you're doing. Sound familiar?

 

Not-for-profits are consistently held to a high level of accountability and too often lose efficiency and effectiveness amongst the ever increasing paperwork required to do so. Of course transparency plays an integral role in donor satisfaction, funding accountability and organisational development monitoring, but wouldn't it be nice if it could be taken care of for you efficiently and easily? Also, if done right, it can be a tool for you to achieve best practise by having the data to make evidence based decisions. But the gathering of data must be easy. After all, no one enters the not-for-profit sector for a love of paperwork and data reports.

 

Furthermore, media headlines often disclose everything from financial inconsistencies to overpaid CEO's, driving donors to desire an even clearer picture of donation distribution and accomplishments. An increasingly technologically savvy society also means it's easier than ever for people to scrutinise organisations before and after donating to ensure accountability. 

 

Granity software is designed to help with data collection and reporting requirements to ensure transparency at all levels of your organisation. Using cloud-based technology, Granity makes it simple to monitor, report and keep track of your organisation in real time, from anywhere in the world. Automated reports and personalised dashboards mean you can inform the right parties directly and without hassle.

 

The quest for transparency doesn't have to consume huge amounts of your not-for-profit's resources, in fact if done well, it can actually help your organisation with increasingly satisfied donors and boards. It also supports you internally as well, establishing best practise management and reporting. With Granity, transparency can be achieved easily and effectively leaving you free to do what you do best.
