Submitted by Amanda on Mon, 04/02/2012 - 6:59am

Our members have accomplished so many amazing things over the past few weeks that highlighting them all is nearly impossible. Featured in this week’s round up are discounted conference registrations and new fundraising tools. NTEN members are even using The Hunger Games buzz to educate about real world food and water issues. Oh, and let’s not forget using GIS technology to better connect localities with programs and services. Check it all out!

Last year, Semphonic completed the first Nonprofit Analytics Challenge. The Challenge involved fifty of the industry's top digital analysts who collaborated to solve real world digital challenges for two nonprofits: Oceana and United Way of the Bay Area. Semphonic then packaged up all of the “how to” knowledge accumulated during the challenge and created a free guide to using Google Analytics.
