Staff Portals, Intranets, call them what you will really help productivity and collaboration within an organisation. Office 365/Sharepoint is an amazing solution, I'm working on an implementation for a customer right now. But what if you don't have 365, or you want something simpler to implement and maintain? I'd suggest looking at using Wordpress CMS. With it's huge choice of plugins and easy to use interface it makes a great basis for an Intranet.

SEO or getting your website to rank higher in Google searches is really important to most organisations. I've recently helped a customer who was appearing on pages 3 to 5 on some typical searches. I did some work on refining the key words on their site and set them up a Facebook business page feeding the posts to their website. Result is on those same searches they now appear on page 1. Please contact me for help and advice on SEO. Graphic showing SEO relationships
I've recently helped a couple of customers with old ISP supplied routers to upgrade to new TP Link routers. Both are enjoying better Wi-Fi and other features that come with new routers and one has reported much better broadband speeds in general. Neither were that straightforward to setup due to some ISP's not being that keen on people using their own hardware but I was able to get both sorted out. I'd recommend choosing an ISP that is happy for you to use your own equipment, even if you don't want to initially.
Been looking at donation sites and have found that the well known sites, Just Giving and Virgin Giving have charges that may be an issue for small charities. MyDonate which is run by BT as a free service for charities only charges the 13/15p card fee.
