NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

2014 Leading Change Summit After over a decade of convening our signature annual Nonprofit Technology Conference, we are excited to unveil and invite you to our inaugural Leading Change Summit in San Francisco on September 3-6. This exclusive event offers advanced level learning for nonprofit changemakers across three tracks: Impact Leadership, Digital Strategy; and the Future of Technology. 

This month's Nonprofit Blog Carnival, hosted by Nancy Schwartz is on the topic: The Word Behind the Work. How do you find productivity and balance in your work and life?

Fundraisers, are you gearing up for your annual campaign? November might seem far away, but now is the perfect time of the year to get started with planning (if you haven’t already!). Read on for some inspiration and an opportunity exclusively for NTEN Members. 

We're so excited to welcome our new Content Manager, Steph Routh, to the NTEN team! Steph will be managing and keeping the great online community content flowing, while doubling as one of Portland's most revered bike & transportation advocates outside the office. You may have also met her at the 14NTC, where she was working with the NTEN team behind the scenes. 

Check out this interview with Steph, follow her on Twitter @StephRouth, and drop her a message to introduce yourself! 

 

The 2014 NTC ended one month ago, and in the last four weeks we've been busy catching up on sleep. We've also aggregated a great deal of feedback and ideas - things that worked and things that didn't about this year's conference, and ways to do more and ways to do better in 2015. Here's our very long recap!

On April 16, the NTEN team in Portland spent the afternoon volunteering at Schoolhouse Supplies, in belated honor of National Volunteer Week. Schoolhouse Supplies is a nonprofit based in northeast Portland that helps to serve classrooms in need by operating a volunteer-run Free Store for Teachers, which is stocked with donated supplies. Our remote team in Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle also volunteered on different projects with Upwardly Global, One Brick, At the Crossroads, and... at home!

Want to join the Steering Committee for the 2015 Nonprofit Technology Conference? Here are the details.

Thanks again to everyone for being a part of the 14NTC! It’s our community that made the conference such a rich experience—and it’s your feedback that will make the 15NTC even better. 

It's National Volunteer Week! NTEN benefits from the service and support of so many volunteers, all year long. Today, please join me in thanking those volunteers who participate on the NTEN Board!

This 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!
