Nonprofit organizations are an important part of every society. These organizations differ from traditional business and governmental organizations in their structure and operations. As state organizations are cutting benefits of citizens the role of these third sector organizations have become more important as they do advocacy on behalf of poor citizens. Keeping in view their societal importance and scientific challenges in system design, we focus on technology involvement in this challenging domain.
