Unit4 and Not for Profit –
helping you deliver impact, transparency and accountability

People are at the heart of what not-for-profit organizations (NFPs) and NGOs do – those you aid and all those involved in enabling and delivering that aid. And people are what we’re all about too. We work in long-term close partnership with service-led organizations like yours, to understand your world and what you and your people need, to make the most of each day – so you can efficiently complete what has to be done and stay focused on what truly needs to be done.

Your world

Today’s NFPs and NGOs don’t just operate against a backdrop of unprecedented change and complexity – you are right in the middle of major global trends that include:

Volatility & uncertainty | Complexity & ambiguity | Increased demand for efficiency, transparency & accountability | Decentralization of funding | The “Digital Divide”

Your needs

These trends have very real and immediate effects on the day-to-day ability of your teams to deliver on your objectives, creating specific challenges that you need to address:

Efficiency | Program effectiveness | Maintaining accountability | Program monitoring | Required Flexibility | Transparency | Business Planning | Development of personnel
