NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

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. 

The NTEN community is filled with amazing individuals who change the world every day. Each year, we honor an individual who has been instrumental in shaping the field of nonprofit technology, and paved the way for the rest of us. Past winners have had a hand in creating and funding the biggest organizations in our space, built nonprofit technology communities large and small, and are exploring and sharing some of the most interesting and innovative technology models.

When the words of our quarterly theme, “innovative and competitive” come to mind, I think about what we can learn from farmers. To enjoy the fruits of our labor, we need to be flexible and responsive to external conditions, and have the patience to see it through to harvest.

With more than 35,000 attendees at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas from March 7-11, attendees from the nonprofit sector are just one segment of the highly diverse SXSW attendees; but this number is growing, and so are the number of breakout sessions. Within this massive conference, the Beacon Lounge has emerged as a space for nonprofit and social good professionals to connect with each other, and experience some alternative programming, the Do Good Dialogues. Learn more about the three core themes that came out of it.
