Vision and mission

We are creating a world where missions and movements are successful through the skillful and equitable use of technology.

We build transformative power by connecting people who are putting technology to work for social change. We build their individual and collective capacity for doing good by offering expert trainings, researching effective approaches, and providing places where relationships can flourish. We relentlessly advocate for the redesign of the systems and structures that maintain inequity.

NTEN’s amazing community is made up of nonprofit staff, volunteers, board members, funders, consultants, and vendors from all walks of life. Join us!

Values and beliefs

The change we want to create is rooted in our organizational values. These values are at the heart of all we do, driving the decisions we make, shaping our priorities, and framing how we engage with our members, community, and others in the sector.

Our beliefs are the core truths we embrace and defend. They are based on carefully listening to our community and closely examining our collective experiences. We fondly call these beliefs The NTEN 6.
