Central Vancouver — Innovative Services NW received a $54,000 grant for an administrative technology upgrade from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust. The grant will allow Innovative to purchase and implement a new accounting, human resources and fixed asset system, along with the required hardware upgrades to accommodate the new software. The nonprofit has grown beyond the capabilities of its current system. The new software will provide the management team with accurate, detailed and timely information, helping to increase the nonprofit’s effectiveness and sustainability. The charitable trust was formed in 1975 to serve individuals, families and communities across the Pacific Northwest by providing grants and enrichment programs to organizations that strengthen the region’s educational, social, spiritual and cultural base in creative and sustainable ways. Innovative Services NW serves more than 1,700 children and adults facing disabilities and disadvantages.
