Project details

What we need
  • Assessment of current technological resources and needs
  • Recommendations for improvements to office networking, site infrastructure, server capabilities, and applications
  • Cost estimates for proposed actions, along with preferred software providers and vendors
Additional details

When thinking about recommendations, please also include what technology services and applications Rising should consider to address long-term goals into manageable short- term achievements and we'd love a list of prerequisites for implementing your proposed actions.

What we have in place
  • We currently have a list of all the "techonology" we are currently using, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff members to answer any questions, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $5,000 , allowing us to buy 328 dolls made by Afghan widows which will provide 1,968 meals to their families.

Managing a Non Profit, donor relations, lead generation, developing content, managing e-commerce customers, product inventory, vendors, Independent Contractors, volunteers and marketing with only three people is challenging. Rising International needs to develop an efficient system for project management and managing information from donors, subscribers, customers, leads, Reps, vendors, volunteers, contacts, etc.

Currently, we have too many systems and tools (i.e., old database, Constant Contact, Adobe Business Catalyst, Facebook, Twitter, Excel, Google Docs, Network for Good, CrowdRise, QuickBooks, Square, DropBox, gmail, photobucket, hightail,, paypal,, hootsuite, Instagram,, etc.) and no strategy for harmonizing them.

About the org

Rising International
Our mission

Our Mission is to end extreme world poverty in this lifetime. Working with others who share this mission, and with your help, extreme global poverty can become a thing of the past.

What we do

Rising International is a nonprofit organization that has revolutionized the home party business model to alleviate poverty locally and globally. Think Avon or Tupperware for a social cause.

We find the world’s most forgotten women and enable them to change their destinies by selling their handmade boutique quality products at Rising Home and Corporate Parties. We train women and teens to be Rising Representatives, many economically vulnerable, to run their own Rising Home Party businesses and sell the products made by their global sisters. We search the U.S. for party hosts who invite friends to their homes to shop.

Our sustainable model empowers both local and global entrepreneurs to rise above their circumstances
