NTEN isn't an organization, we're a community – a community with a shared set of values, including authenticity, sharing, and of course, laughter. Each year at the Nonprofit Technology Conference, we get the chance to celebrate one individual – of the many! – who embodies those values and enhances the NTEN community. These individuals, recipients of the annual NTEN Award, are the people working hard to move NTEN's mission forward from within the community: always ready to share a case study, idea, or contact.
