It is imperative that charities embrace technology. This will enable them to have a single view of their donor data and responsibly manage this, to understand their donors’ preferences and therefore engage appropriately.”  86 total views,  1 views today Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
