Educate to mobilize and inspire
Before people can believe in and get behind a mission, they must first understand it. Imagine creating engaging courses in 50+ languages for people around the world. With effective training, you can help others understand your cause and get them to buy into your association’s or nonprofit’s mission. However, without the right technology and resources, achieving this feat is nearly impossible.

Quickly measure the impact of your nonprofit’s lessons and track your learners’ progress, strengths, and weaknesses

Rethink resource allocation and efficiency with CYPHER
A recent 2023 survey of 1,600 nonprofits revealed that three out of four organizations experienced job vacancies, with two-thirds citing budget constraints as the primary cause. When nonprofits can’t hire enough employees to provide essential services, the public suffers.
This lack of human capital and financial resources in the nonprofit sector has long plagued the nonprofit sector, creating a cycle of low pay, high staff turnover, and scarcity of talented recruits. When this high turnover occurs at the C-suite level, filling those positions is even more difficult. Not only do you need to find someone who aligns with the nonprofit’s mission, they also must be trained on organizational operations.
What if there were a way to simplify metrics? To track which areas of the organization most contributed to spreading the mission and allocate more resources to it. A way to understand which employees are best versed in the knowledge needed for certain roles and effectively promote from within.
This problem of high turnover could be lessened if employees knew there were vast opportunities for growth and promotion within the nonprofit they believe so strongly in.
CYPHER is infinitely scalable and built to grow with your organization. With robust reporting capabilities and analytics, you can track just how effective your learning efforts are in spreading your message and growing your employees. Plus, the platform supports 50+ languages so you can translate and localize your content for those in every corner of the globe.

Traditional way vs. CYPHER’s approach
In a Stanford study of nonprofits, one organization determined that an investment in technological infrastructure yielded $350,000 per year by freeing up staff. Many nonprofits tend to skimp on investing in overhead, but this lack of investment actually ends up hurting them in the long run.
With constantly degrading resources, nonprofits can easily become trapped in a negative cycle. The “nonprofit starvation cycle” is a term used to describe the idea that funders often expect nonprofits to do more and more with less and less – a nearly impossible task with traditional technology and mindsets.
What if there actually was a way to do more with less? Less money, people, and time. With CYPHER, there is. The CYPHER platform unifies LMS, LXP, and content development. Our AI-powered tools and capabilities like CYPHER AI 360 streamlines the course creation process so you can create and maintain more courses with less time and money.
