Project management apps for the non-profit sector allow non-profit organizations to track projects and allocate resources. Every project should include a description, start date, end date, budget, resource costs (including labor costs), and other important information that helps users complete tasks more efficiently. Non-profits can use project management apps to organize volunteer events, process donations, plan fundraising campaigns, or execute any sort of other initiative.
Project management apps are similar to other business productivity apps like sales management apps, scheduling apps, and sales mobilization apps. The top project management applications today are Trello, Asana, Basecamp, and Smartsheet.

In order for a project management app to grow its user base within the non-profit sector, it must allow non-profit organizations to easily track the progress of their projects. In addition, project management apps need to have a low barrier to entry for users who are working on small projects. Smaller organizations often don't have dedicated project managers and must rely on volunteers to complete tasks and manage budgets. The app's interface needs to be simple and easy for novice project managers to use.
Non-profit project management apps face legal risks associated with the sharing of personal information, labor violations, and job claims. Before creating a non-profit project management app, you should ensure that your legal counsel has reviewed the terms of service to ensure that you are not violating any employment or labor regulations. You should also consider building an open source version of your project management app that is freely available for use by other non-profits so as to avoid any legal issues related to licensing.
