TYPO3’s tools support NGOs and nonprofits

Enable a distributed team of content marketers

If your multi-site organization has authors and editors located around the world, you need a CMS with precise permissions for creating, editing, and reviewing pieces of global and local content. TYPO3’s granular access control makes it easy. Editors with global permissions can manage shared styles and assets, while content marketers who know their markets like the backs of their hands get to manage local sites. TYPO3 enables unified branding and supports teams of global contributors.

Meet website visitors where they are

Managing and delivering content for many different target groups across multi-site websites can pose a difficult challenge for enterprises. TYPO3’s user groups, multi-site installations, and persona targeting let you decide when and how to show content to different users while sharing brand resources to reduce repetitive work. With its fine-grained access control and smart content targeting, you can ensure users get what they need.

User Access Management helps users embody their roles

It’s difficult to maintain consistent governance—access, approvals, and quality assurance—across various content, sites, and assets. TYPO3 is natively equipped with consistent governance across all content within the platform. Fine-grained permissions enable editor productivity through an optimal and customized workflow. TYPO3 supports and melds with your company’s processes.

Respect user privacy

If your organization handles sensitive user data, your internal and external users alike must trust that you’re keeping them secure. With the TYPO3 CMS, you can schedule stored data for deletion or cleanup and automate security processes around privacy to prevent human error from unveiling sensitive data.  TYPO3 respects user privacy and sensitive information by design. 

Meaningful user engagement

Reaching the right audience via your website is difficult unless you truly understand your end-users. TYPO3 makes it a breeze to gather leads and make connections via endless custom forms options, user personalization, and back-office marketing integrations and extensions. Engage more meaningfully with your end-users by gathering the information you need to know and personalizing your contact. 

Marketing software that scales

As organizations scale, they need a greater variety of marketing software to keep pace with their growth. TYPO3 offers basic marketing and SEO functionality that lets your organization get off the ground quickly. As your organization grows, integrate with the best, specialized marketing solutions for your needs: Salesforce, Mautic, Email marketing, A/B testing, social media tools, CRM systems, DAM systems, etc. TYPO3 makes it easy to unify these tools to help drive conversions and keep your marketing efforts running smoothly.

What NGOs and nonprofits are saying

Ryan Owens - Executive Director - Monadnock Conservancy

We couldn’t be happier with our new website, and we love the user-friendly yet powerful TYPO3 content management system.

Isabel Pantke - Online Editorial - Hanns-Seidel-Stiftung

For our 25 websites in 17 languages, mostly multilingual, TYPO3 is the perfect system. With the localization extension and the multilingual backend of TYPO3, this is also easy to maintain for the editors on site, in South Korea, Morocco or anywhere else.

Larry Garfield - PHP-FIG Core Committee Member - TYPO3

TYPO3 fully embraces PSR standards. That gives it a long-term stability and flexibility that few other CMSes can match.
