To facilitate the availability of GIS technology and resources, Esri launched the Nonprofit Program in 2010, open to organizations of all sizes worldwide. Currently boasting over 10,000 active members, the program provides nonprofits with access to Esri technologies, allowing them to advance their missions effectively. With Esri’s GIS tools, nonprofits can harness the power of location intelligence to tell compelling stories, inspire changemakers, and rally support around their cause.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become invaluable tools for nonprofits seeking to make a positive impact on their communities and the world. Through GIS, nonprofits can understand their communities better, act strategically to achieve their mission, and measure the impact of their initiatives accurately. By adopting a geographic approach, nonprofits can harness the power of spatial thinking to turn data into actionable insights, thus empowering them to address critical challenges effectively.
As technology continues to evolve, GIS will play an increasingly important role in shaping the nonprofit sector’s efforts to build a better, more equitable world. With the Esri Nonprofit Program and other resources at their disposal, nonprofits have the means to harness the potential of GIS and drive meaningful change in the communities they serve.
