About Keela (by Networks for Change)

Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Keela is dedicated to building accessible productive technology for nonprofits. Keela’s powerful suite of integrated nonprofit management tools include the ability to manage donations, projects, relationships, and campaigns.

Central to Keela’s approach to nonprofit management is accessibility. Specifically, this means that the tools are affordably priced; easy to learn; easy to teach; and easy on the eyes. Keela has been developed with comfortable design as its central product development philosophy. This encompasses everything from Keela’s choice to use larger font and high contrast colours to the functional consistency found across all tools on the platform.

Dedicated to truly democratizing quality nonprofit management tools, Keela continues to develop its technology, constantly improving user experience and adding features requested by its active global community of nonprofits. The interaction between the Keela team and nonprofits globally help to keep the platform reflective of the immediate needs of the sector and its quickly changing environment.

Keela was born as a social enterprise - a company dedicated to changing the world and building a sustainable business. From the beginning, our leadership team has been deliberate about developing an accountable and transparent operational approach. We want to show the same level of accountability to our clients that they are responsible to show those that they serve. It is important to that we support the positive impact our clients make across the world through our own value-aligned business mandate. The values of social and environmental responsibility are central to our company’s philosophy. Applying to become a certified B-corp was simply the next step towards the realization of our company mandate as a social enterprise developing tools for social good.

The Change We Seek®

Keela aims to truly democratize nonprofit technology. Central to this is the company-wide belief that accessibility is the key to creating truly usable nonprofit technology that ultimately builds capacity for the sector at large.

For a sector with limited options for accessible productive technology, Keela aims to bridge the gap and level the playing field. While larger, more established nonprofits are able to take full advantage of quality, integrated technology that allows them to do more and increase their impact, smaller organizations are left with few options. Tools are far too expensive, too difficult to learn, and too difficult to use, resulting in inefficient and cluttered work environments. Keela works to break down the barriers that are faced by small nonprofits as they bring change to communities across the world. Keela allows teams to operate effectively and efficiently, leaving more time, effort, and money to be directed to the projects that matter most.

With Keela’s affordably priced packages starting at just $25/month, organizations gain access to a full suite of tools that automate administrative tasks, simplify communications, manage relationships, and allow for easy team management. To date, technology of this caliber has been built for a small minority in the nonprofit sector—those with significant annual revenues. It is our belief that powerful, integrated solutions should be accessible for all organizations and initiatives –– big or small.
