A Custom-Built Microsoft SharePoint Intranet for Nonprofits with Dock
Topics: SharePoint Content Management
Nonprofits need to stay organized with tools that are affordable and robust. With Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365, Dock builds a custom intranet portal for nonprofit businesses. We’ll take a closer look at the donor portal, custom homepage shortcuts, vendor list, and board meetings.
Dock has built a Donor Panel for Nonprofits, which includes shortcuts to:
- Donor Companies
- Fundraising Activities
These panels are fully editable; however, we find that these are the most common for nonprofits. As you can see in the screenshot, the shortcut sections surround the main panels, like the businesses homepage.

Vendor Management Portal
The vendor list is where you can keep track of current vendor’s information such as the name of the company, phone, email, what type of products or services and the star rating. Learn more about how SharePoint extranet portal can help your team collaborate with Vendors and Customers here.
Nonprofit Board Meeting
The board meeting panel is a key area for nonprofits to track and stay organized to plan their time efficiently. Watch a brief video about how to add new meetings to the boardroom portal. With SharePoint and Office 365, Dock has developed a platform to clearly display the needs
You can include the location information such as the city where the office is located or even down to the boardroom if it’s an internal meeting. Select the category to show “meeting” for this example. You can tag meetings by entering a value of finance as an example to track distinct types of meeting topics. The boardroom portal also includes an area to upload your meeting documents such as the agenda, minutes or the meeting’s presentation if you have it ahead of time.
