The 16th issue of NTEN: Change is here: Cultivating Leadership

Change, December 2014

The 16th issue of the NTEN: Change journal is out, focusing on the Best of 2014: Cultivating Leadership.

We launched the first issue of 2014 by planting the seed: How can nonprofits remain competitive, innovative, and responsive to the changing external environment? The inspiration, as reflected on the quarterly NTEN: Change covers, came from farmers, a profession characterized by the need to be responsive. You can’t talk about technology implementation without discussing change. Tending to technology needs in today’s changing nonprofit landscape requires ongoing cultivation and adaptability.

Access the December 2014 issue! There are two ways to read it:

Articles and interviews in this issue reflect on 2014, and offer up some important perspectives to take into the New Year. Features include:

We also go behind the scenes with The Denver FoundationInterActionEmerging Practitioners in Philanthropy, and the International Living Future Institute to learn how they’re using technology for social change. Network for Good and Vibrance Global explore different donor experiences,Jeanne Allen offers six tips for online board engagement, and James Murdock eloquently shares his experiences on a question we take to heart: How can nonprofits rethink the PDF?

We hope these articles prepare and inspire you to create change in your organization and through your mission.
