Hello! [Jayne Cravens](http://www.coyotebroad.com), and I have been associated with TechSoup since the 1990s, when it was called CompuMentor: first I was at a nonprofit that was a client, then as the volunteer moderator of the Volunteers & Technology branch of the TechSoup community forum (long gone - it's such a cross-cutting issue), and frequent volunteer participant in various TechSoup and NetSquared online activities and events. In 2011, I filled in temporarily as TechSoup community forum manager - and my temp job lasted 3 years. At the end of April 2014, I went back to being just an ordinary (not so ordinary?) volunteer, as a forum contributor. And in the summer of 2020, I came back as a paid consultant to help revitalize the forums and to help strategize for its future. More information about me and what I do professionally is available at **[my web site](http://www.coyotebroad.com)**.

My book The Last Virtual Volunteering Guidebook is available as an e-book or a traditional paperback. 

Software I can advise on (but only from a user's perspective): LibreOffice, FOSS (especially for Apple Macintosh), Volunteer Management Software (I won't recommend packages, but I will say what it should do), Google Docs, Google Calendar, and WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, (especially social media for program delivery and awareness building).
