enSYNC and D2L Join to Deliver Learning for Nonprofits

December 2, 2019


Global learning technology leader D2L, and prominent member-based technology solution provider, enSYNC, today announced a new partnership that will support learning for nonprofits in the US, Canada, and the UK.

As reported by Global News Wire and, enSYNC and D2L have joined to deliver learning for nonprofits.

“We’re delighted to partner with a well-respected and trusted education technology company that complements our mission: helping nonprofits, associations, and member-based organizations efficiently achieve their maximum growth potential,” said David Hickey, CEO of enSYNC. “Our clients expect a world-class level of service and technology that not every platform can meet. D2L delivers, bringing a great deal of value to the table for us and for our clients.”

enSYNC builds technology solutions for nonprofits, associations and other member-based organizations. Specifically, they help with software selection, process improvement, operational assessments, and strategic assessments, as well as implementing platforms and providing training on best practices.

In working with their partners in the nonprofit sector, enSYNC recognized that tech-savvy young professionals entering the workforce are looking for professional development opportunities. However, recruiting and retaining those tech-savvy young professionals is challenging when the organizations being served do not have a modern learning platform.  D2L’s Brightspace platform helps solves that challenge by offering an intuitive platform to deliver online learning backed by a team dedicated to delivering superior support for associations’ staff. Together, enSYNC and D2L will develop a deeper integration between Brightspace and iMIS — the nonprofit, association, and membership software used by enSYNC.

“We’re pleased that our two companies have come together to help meet the goals and missions of nonprofits on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Willem Boom, Senior Director, Worldwide Channel Sales, D2L. “Together, we’ll help organizations doing good work attract and keep great talent by providing the learning platform they need.”
