TAG and GMN are pleased to release the 2014 Grantmakers Information Technology Survey Report. The report concludes that funders are floundering with technology tools. While many foundations are very progressive with respect to their grantmaking programs, they are not nearly as forward-thinking with respect to the strategic use of technology in their business practices. Almost half of the survey respondents described their technology as lagging behind and only 23% indicated that their executives totally get it.
