Karlie Drutz

Karlie Drutz is the Charity Community Manager for everydayhero, a peer-to-peer fundraising service provided by Blackbaud, and a member of NTEN’s local 501 Tech Club in San Francisco. Katie used NTEN resources to help her develop her own training sessions:

everydayhero’s Impactful Insights Websites Series explores specific topics in peer-to-peer fundraising, aided by great resources such as those by NTEN. I work with nonprofit staff members in my role as Charity Community Manager at everydayhero, and it is remarkable how the resources and conferences NTEN has can help nonprofits make great strides in technology.
