Mission Box Engagement Communities are an online safe and secure social platform for exchanging information, collaborating with key constituents, scheduling events, and coordinating efforts.
Each community is a universe unto itself, managed by the owning entity, which may be a single nonprofit organization, a group of organizations, or a foundation. It may even be a broad network of private and public organizations and individuals all working together to achieve common goals.
Within a community, groups are set up for each of the different audiences or kinds of people who are part of the community. For instance, a nonprofit may have groups for staff, volunteers, board members, major funders and various committees and projects. The information in each group reflects what the group members need to know and what is potentially of interest to them.
The purpose of the group informs who can view the group. Group access may be restricted to just invited members, open to anyone in the community, or available to the world. Confidential information, such as board discussions would be kept
Just as individuals may have several roles within an organization, users may be part of more than one group. Similarly, information such as articles, events and discussions, may be shared with other groups at the discretion of the group administrators and editors.
