Did you know that over 64% of nonprofits include technology in their strategic plan, and there's been an increase in the number of "data" staff at nonprofits? These are some of the key findings from last year's Nonprofit Technology Staffing & Investments research. Help us figure out if that trend stayed true in 2014.

In partnership with Care2 and TechSoup Global, NTEN is conducting the 9th annual Nonprofit Technology Staffing and Investments survey in order to provide both benchmarks and qualitative data about technology decisions and practices among NTEN, Care2, and TechSoup Global's community.
