NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

Last year, NTEN Community Champions helped to raise over $36,000 to support the NTEN Community Challenge, which enhanced NTEN's program accessibility, including sending over 50 people to the 2014 Nonprofit Technology Conference (14NTC) and the 2014 Leading Change Summit (14LCS) with scholarships.

To whom did the scholarships go, and what was the impact of your donation? As we try to raise support for 2015, we wanted to share the impact of your donation from last year, from the voices of our scholarship recipients. Today, we want to introduce you to Ari Gluck, Director of IT, Children's Council of San Francisco.

There's just one week left in 2014 and we need all of the help we can get to start next year on the right (and well-funded) foot to support scholarships, membership and program accessibility, and the quality content that makes this such an amazing community. Join us in celebrating the incredible NTEN Community of over 50,000 participants by donating $1 (or $100) today. Here's a quick report on where the 2015 NTEN Challenge campaign is at today.

 Change, December 2014

The 16th issue of the NTEN: Change journal is out, focusing on the Best of 2014: Cultivating Leadership.

We launched the first issue of 2014 by planting the seed: How can nonprofits remain competitive, innovative, and responsive to the changing external environment? The inspiration, as reflected on the quarterly NTEN: Change covers, came from farmers, a profession characterized by the need to be responsive. You can't talk about technology implementation without discussing change. Tending to technology needs in today's changing nonprofit landscape requires ongoing cultivation and adaptability.

We've come full circle. Articles and interviews in this issue reflect on 2014, and offer up some important perspectives to take into the New Year. Read the latest issue today!

Giving back to the local community that physically hosts the NTEN Community through NTC Days of Service expresses a guiding value of the annual event. Throughout the 15NTC, there will be volunteer opportunities to engage and share the community's skills with Austin, TX area nonprofits. This year, we’ve expanded the Days of Service program at the 15NTC to include virtual volunteering opportunities that engage NTC attendees ahead of the conference, in addition to providing on-the-ground volunteer opportunities in Austin.

Ever wondered what it takes to put on the largest conference of changemakers that put tech to work for their causes? Volunteering is a great way to go behind the scenes and contribute to the experience that is the Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC). Sign up today to be a volunteer at the 15NTC in Austin, Texas this March! 

What does "digital strategy" look like in your organization? For many nonprofits, digital strategy teams can incorporate staff from a range of departments. What are these teams investing in for 2015? How are these efforts funded? How many people are on the team, and who's in charge of it?

We've teamed up with hjc and Care2 to gather feedback from community members like you to create the 2015 Digital Strategy Outlook Survey. Your answers will help provide an outlook on digital strategy in 2015. The deadline for responses is December 31.
