Key features of the SHARE New Mexico Community Platform include:
Users can create a map of organizations, program, or places by zipcode, county or customized region. 'Flags' on the map designate the type of organization or program they represent (civil rights, youth services, etc.).
Organizational profiles offer a range of information about organizations including addresses, payment options, their activity codes, as well as programs associated with that organization. Profiles can be updated by the Community Administrator or other authorized users.
This centralized directory of goods and services -- a sort of 'Craigslist for Nonprofits' -- is intended to help organizations develop partnerships or to share resources with other nonprofits. Potential shared resources include staff consultants, equipment, volunteers and facilities. Organizations can post both 'needs' and 'available goods and services' in the Classifieds and these postings are also populated on the New Mexico Volunteer Connection.
The Community Library acts as a warehouse of critical resources that can help organizations perform better within their communities. Building on our own work and that of key national partners, the Community Library includes links to successful community projects, information on best practices, and webinars addressing various topics (program management, project development, advocacy, etc.)
The Platform allows users and organizations to form project teams in the hope of addressing community concerns. The Projects section allows teams to assign tasks, make lists, or send notes to other members of the project team.
Users can create custom lists of organizations based on any specified criteria. Custom Lists allow project teams as well as individual users to analyze and share information on organizations across a range of nonprofit categories. Custom Lists can be used to map and analyze nonprofit information including members, programs, finances, and more.
