Telcos Survey Sector on NFP Challenges
5 March 2015 at 10:03 am
The Telco Together Foundation has launched a new survey to capture the common issues and challenges faced by the Australian Not for Profit sector to help telcos fund strategic community programs in the future.
The Foundation says the Charity Insights Survey will help define future Telco Together-funded strategic community programs that support Australian charities.
“We are seeking input from charities Australia-wide, across an extensive range of causes and challenges, to help us identify key patterns and trends,” Telco Together Foundation Programs Manager, Maria Simonelli said.
“Many of us working in the Not for Profit sector will likely have more than one challenge in our daily working lives, so this research tool allows for individuals to take the survey multiple times, sharing a different challenge each time the survey is completed.
“By taking the survey, you will be helping Telco Together obtain greater insight and understanding of the challenges you face on a daily basis. Insights gained will then be used to help inform future strategic programs that support the Not for Profit sector, which will be of direct benefit to Australian charities.”
Launched in July 2012, Telco Together Foundation is a registered charity that brings together the telecommunications industry in support of Australian communities in need across areas including Indigenous communities, the homeless, mental health and refugees.
The core focus of the Foundation’s work is the development of community projects that build on the technology, reach and capabilities of the telecommunications industry to support the Australian Not for Profit sector, as well as promoting fundraising, volunteering and workplace giving across member organisations.
Members of the Foundation include Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, NBN Co, M2, iiNet, Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent and 16 other ICT organisations. The Foundation is governed by an Advisory Board that has Executive Officer level representation from members.
