Survey finds only 24% of US non-profits have a written online strategy

A survey of 1,319 managers at US non-profit organisations has found that while 92% of organisations have a Web site, only 24% have a written online strategy.

Only 28% of respondents said their organisations had a written technology plan.

The survey was conducted online, so its conclusions are not representative of the sector as a whole.
