Karen Goldlist

The Cause Project

I am extremely excited about launching a new online platform for charities and non-profit organizations. It's called The Cause Project because it connects individuals with causes and the projects they are passionate about. It also lets individuals get involved with causes online. (at home or at the office). It connects everyone with Facebook & Twitter so they can spread the word.

My background as a volunteer for various organizations prompted me to develop The Cause Project. I have chaired a Gala, managed my kids hockey teams, sold ads for charitable publications and created newborn layettes (all in the name of charity). I am passionate about my family and philanthropy. These are the things that make me feel good.

When not travelling the globe to show-off the cool donor platform, he lives in Olathe with 3 full size Cow Parade cows, a dog, cat -- and a wife who travels almost as much as he does! An avid golfer, sailor, and recreational chef, he is a NY and Boston transplant wondering where the water is in Kansas.

Deborah Elizabeth Finn

Technology for the Nonprofit and Philanthropic Sector

Deborah Elizabeth Finn lives to bring resources and needs together seamlessly in the nonprofit sector, mostly through strategic use of2008 NTENny Winner information and communication technologies. She loves everything about her work except being an independent consultant, and would much rather be a cog in a machine. Her past and current clients, all of whom she adores, include Third Sector New England, the Public Conversations Project, Changing The Present, Social Markets, Earth Track, the Food Project, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, IDEAS Boston, and the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network. She is a founding member of the Information Systems Forum, the Ethos Roundtable, Mission-Based Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Technology Working Group, and the Boston Technobabes. In her spare time, she captions photographs for LOLnptech.Org, reads Victorian literature, listens to Counter-Reformation liturgical music, and indulges her compulsion to introduce everyone on the planet to everyone else.

In my role as Interactive Communications Manager at Convio, I manage the Connection Cafe blog, all things new media related 2009 NTENny Winnerincluding our social media sites as well as all Convio Web sites. An Internet-addicted, new media loving communications professional, I'm always eager to learn about the latest and greatest in interactive communications and online marketing.  The ability to pair my work in online communications with helping our nonprofit clients in the process makes my job even more fulfilling.

In my spare time, you can usually find me spending time outdoors in an Austin water hole with my two pups, gardening, curling up and reading a great book, playing a competitive game of Wii bowling or watching the long list of programs I regularly schedule to record on my DVR. 

And true to my NTENy award -- you can always find me on Twitter at @jordanv
