Community Partners are deeply invested in the nonprofit community, sharing their knowledge and resources to help organizations use technology effectively. Being a Community Partner is the best way to increase your involvement and be recognized as supporting NTEN’s programs and values throughout the year. You can join today!

In the past, technology service providers, vendors, and consultants showed affiliation with NTEN and investment in the community by joining as an NTEN Member. We’ve recently changed our membership program to focus on people and not organizations. They are the ones, after all, who are doing the connecting, learning, and change-making. This means your staff can still join as members, receive member benefits, and engage as part of the NTEN community. As an organization, though, the best way to show that you support NTEN and the leading community of nonprofit professionals who put technology to use for real impact is to sign on as a Community Partner.
