Sharing the news of Aaron Bramley’s passing

We are sad to share the news that long-time NTEN community member Aaron Bramley has passed away. Aaron has always been an embodiment of the NTEN values with his willingness to share ideas and expertise, creativity with collaboration, focus on impact, and his eagerness to see everyone succeed. From online NTEN groups to the Nonprofit Technology Conference and locally with the Austin community, Aaron was a leader, inspiration, and friend.

Dale Thompson, long-time organizer of Nonprofit Tech Club Austin, mentioned that Aaron once gave a great presentation about making videos for nonprofits for club attendees. She said, “He was someone you instantly liked with a very big heart and his good works will be remembered for a long time.”

We are heartbroken by this loss for his family, for Austin, and for all of us in the community. Please read the full reflection from Aaron’s family and consider contributing to Aaron’s final campaign and adding to the StoryCorps set up by his family.
