Capterra Affiliate Linking Policy

Capterra’s blogs aim to be useful to small business software buyers. Capterra participates in vendor affiliate, referral, and pay-per-click programs where available. This means after a content piece is written by our researchers, our affiliate manager converts existing mentions of vendors into affiliate links where possible and adds PPC links where appropriate. When readers click on those links, sometimes we make a small commission and when they make purchases, sometimes we earn an affiliate fee. That said, we do not accept free products or services from vendors in exchange for mentioning them on the site.

No Capterra blogs or blog posts are sponsored by vendors; further, our writers independently choose which vendors to cover and what to write about them. In fact, most of our writers are unaware of Capterra’s affiliate relationships.

If you have any questions about Capterra’s affiliate policy, including our impartiality or how to get your affiliate links on our editorial content, please email cathy@capterra.com.

There is always something new to learn. I’ve built up my experience in the nonprofit sector over the past five years, but still rely on others to learn even more about the industry I cover.

Whether I’m looking for recent studies, nonprofit software breakdowns, or information on tech adoption, I regularly read a number of nonprofit industry blogs to find what I need and keep pace with the times.

The internet is a wealth of information, and it’s hard to know where to begin. To that end, I’ve compiled a list of six nonprofit blogs (broken out by category) to ease your nonprofit’s journey to information.

These blogs publish how-to guides, news, tech trends, best practices, and personal experiences relevant to managing the day-to-day operations of nonprofit organizations.

Whatever niche your nonprofit operates in, you’ll find something here to improve your management skills, boost your volunteer engagement, or increase your technical prowess.
