NTEN Celebrates National Volunteer Week: Kudos to Our Community Champions

Submitted by Joleen Ong on Thu, 04/10/2014 - 7:45am

 April 6-12, 2014This week is National Volunteer Week! To recognize the tremendous work of volunteers that support the nonprofit sector, we’ll be publishing a blog post every day this week to celebrate their contributions. Today we give a huge thanks to our mighty team of NTEN Community Champions: you helped to collectively raise over $30,000 for the greater good of the #nptech community!

These donations primarily helped to provide 50 scholarships to the 14NTC to nonprofit staff who would otherwise be unable to participate. It also went towards bringing in new members that may not be able to cover the cost of NTEN Membership; supporting our worldwide Tech Clubs with more materials to enhance their experience; and developing new programs and resources for NTEN’s growing community.

So today, we tip our hats to you. Thank you for your ongoing support and effort to make nonprofit technology accessible to a wider audience!
