technology for Change

When your goals and your technology are aligned, everything is possible.

A passion for empowering IT for nonprofit organizations.
For nonprofit organizations that serve the public good, foundations that further social causes or institutions that provide a public benefit, Information Technology plays a crucial role in services delivery, operations, communications, fundraising and collaboration.

Because nonprofit organizations (NPOs) tend to focus their resources on maximizing their services impact, IT budgets are often a lower priority. Poor
or dated IT infrastructure, support limitations and data security vulnerabilities often plague even the most dedicated NPOs, weakening organizational effectiveness, or worse, threatening operations or exposing sensitive data. Budgetary constraints limit the interest and minimize the efforts of most 3rd party IT service companies.

But not at Ashton.

Ashton Solutions is a Cleveland area-based strategic IT provider serving clients across Ohio, and nationally. We do that with a passion for empowering organiza- tions that serve the public interest. It’s part of our values and our mission. While we have grown by helping businesses succeed, over nearly 30 years of operation our most rewarding relationships continue to be assisting nonprofits — including educational institutions, healthcare, charities, civic organizations, and public assets such as museums and gardens — with partnerships that span decades.

Organizations we serve.
We are honored to work with numerous NPOs including:

  • Hattie Larlham – provides care and support, enhancing the quality of life for more than 1,600 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the state of Ohio.
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio – provides assistance, support, lodging and hope to thousands of families whose children are receiving medical care each year.

  • Managed or co-managed solutions, tailored to the requirements of NPO internal IT staffing and resources.
  • Robust security measures, including next-generation firewalls and advanced endpoint protection that drastically reducing the likelihood of trojans, DDOS, crypto variants, malware, spyware or other evolving threats.
