Why we deserve the makeover
New Kingdom Trailriders is excited to have the opportunity to make our nonprofit run better!! We are currently struggling in every aspect of technology. For example, our website and computer are outdated, temperamental and not at all user friendly. NKT's program has grown in 2018 and hopes to see even more growth in 2019. With this growth, it's crucial to have proper, more adequate, up to date technology in place for our riders, volunteers, employees and program in general. NKT requires better technology for it's organization to provide: an easier enrollment process, keep everyone updated, give access to availability, needs, and trainings, and allows for tracking progress, riders, volunteers, events, payments, fundraising, etc. As the Executive Director I currently have to take care of emails from home. Often finding myself running back and forth during the day. This tends to be unproductive and takes time away from other important tasks. NKT enriches the lives of individuals each day. PLEASE help us continue to empower the lives of our riders by improving our technology and make our nonprofit run better so we can focus our time on those who matter most...OUR RIDERS!!
