For more information on WebServes’ range of offerings: Our Work
WebServes was founded in NYC in the aftermath of 9/11, as the support system for neighborhood, community, and small-to-midsize nonprofit organizations became increasingly fragile in the NY and Tri-State area. This period only exacerbated an existing national trend of underfunding critical technologies and programs upon which these organizations relied, or could benefit from. While well-defined programs may be funded by private and corporate foundations, the very technologies that enabled those programs were rarely funded. This has produced a technology gap that has differentiated for-profit from non-profit ventures; a trend that is only slowly changing in recognition of the critical enabling technologies available.
WebServes has long-sought to bridge that gap by offering affordable access to technology for such under-funded organizations. WS offers the kind of counseling, education and facilitation that make the technologies not only available to its client groups, but also increase their knowledgeable and effective use.
