The Central Desktop Gives Initiative Chooses Autumn Recipient – Breast Cancer Fundraiser
Central Desktop recently donated the use of its online, collaborative project management application to a charitable organization as part of its initiative to help not for profit organizations to enhance their communications and connect within their communities. The Central Desktop Gives programme came to life in August of this year and gives access to its online service to the chosen not for profit organization. A new recipient is chosen each quarter from the applications received.
The benefitting organization for this quarter is the Breast Cancer Fundraiser that, working in conjunction with KaptureVision, encourages charitable participation from young professionals, through the delivery of national events to recognize and honor those who have suffered and survived breast cancer. The aim of the organization to raise money for localized charities that support women through this disease.
The donation will allow the Fundraiser to use the Central Desktop functionality to plan and deliver their events. With a variety of stakeholders involved, including volunteers and organizational staff, Central Desktop offers the facility to collaborate easily, particularly beneficial to distributed teams and this, coupled with the task management and document storage aspects of the application, the Fundraiser has the opportunity to concentrate on their main aim of raising money for this very worthwhile cause. Its simple to use interface means users need very little training and orientation to make best use of its features and team members and volunteers are very quickly productive.
Nilo G, founder of the Fundraiser, said: “With so many projects going at once and multiple events booked in cities across the country, we will use Central Desktop as a way to understand what each team member is working on, share files and work together on projects. We have so many moving parts – from calling on sponsors to raffle and donation items to negotiating contracts with vendors – and Central Desktop will help us stay more organized, increase efficiency and ultimately raise more money for this cause.”
The first of these Central Desktop Gives awards was given to the Society of Women Engineers – Santa Clara Section (SWE-SCV), which provides support for current, retired and prospective female engineers.
Central Desktop is one of the market leaders in the space of cloud-based, collaborative project management applications and is delivered as a subscription-based service, although it does offer a forever free account for smaller companies, allowing up to 5 users.
