Tech Accelerate

Take the Tech Accelerate assessment and get actionable insights for your nonprofit

For the last ten years, NTEN’s research has helped identify the practices in technology staffing and management that indicate an organization’s adoption level and potential for effectiveness.

Created by NTEN in partnership with The Forbes Funds, Tech Accelerate puts a decade of data and evaluation into a simple-to-use assessment, report, and benchmarking tool for the nonprofit sector. This free tool includes:

  • a comprehensive assessment about technology use and policies across four major categories of leadership, organization, infrastructure, and fundraising and communications
  • a full report that includes both overall and category rankings, prioritized areas of investment, and resources for next steps
  • benchmarking tools to explore your data in comparison to organizations like yours

Tech Accelerate is built with nonprofit staff in mind, whether you want to assess your current practices, identify areas for needed investment, or benchmark your adoption against other similar organizations. To start your first Tech Accelerate assessment, you will need to have an organization connected to your NTEN profile. You can invite other staff to help you complete the assessment online. When you are finished, submit your assessment to access your full report, including ratings, information about how to improve, and resources to guide your next steps.

After a decade as a newspaper and online journalist, she devoted her career to marketing for social good organizations working for sustainability, public health, education and technology. Among her proudest moments was receiving the 2015 NTEN Award for services to the nonprofit tech sector; and watching billboard ads for the Queensland AIDS Council being reinstated after a million-strong social media campaign against the homophobic decision to remove them. She and her team are currently working on a membership growth strategy for NTEN, as well as rebranding efforts. When not working, Lyndal can usually be found making mixtapes or digging in her garden.
