About Us

AdaptImpact helps nonprofits improve their operating efficiency, expand their programs and reach their clients and supporters through improved uses of technology.

Technology is changing at a faster pace than ever. To stay current and competitive, nonprofits must adapt. This means updating, migrating, and engaging with new technologies and systems. Our philosophy is that in order to continue having the kind of positive impact you expect, you must adapt. To this end, we are focused on helping nonprofits improve their operating efficiency, ability to serve their clients and, in turn, their relationship with funders and supporters. We provide professional consulting, design, implementation and technology management services aimed at helping you improve your operational infrastructure and achieve your goals.
