Sponsor the NTC

The Nonprofit Technology Conference is simply your best opportunity to connect with technology decision-makers and thought leaders from around the nonprofit sector.

Welcome to NTEN, the leading community of people who are putting technology to work for social change and the proud host of the Nonprofit Technology Conference. Our community is constantly exploring new technology and how to use it strategically, effectively, and equitably. By sponsoring the NTC, you’ll demonstrate your commitment to our community and alignment with our values. Plus, we’re a lot more fun than any other event!

Join the community in Baltimore, Maryland, April 16–18, 2025.

The NTC attracts thousands of participants from across the country and worldwide, representing nonprofits of all sizes and missions. But NTEN is much more than a conference. For year-round opportunities, partner with us on content, professional development, and more.

25NTC Sponsorship opportunities are coming in the summer of 2024.

About sponsorship

We want you to get the most out of sponsorship. We’re excited to offer packages you can customize from à la carte options that have transparent pricing.

Your sponsorship allows people to attend at the lowest possible cost and encourages organizations of all sizes and budgets to participate. When evaluating sponsorship ROI, be sure to include the visibility of your investment in the community alongside tangible benefits. Note that we do not share attendee lists to protect people's privacy. We’re upfront about this, so you can decide if sponsorship matches your goals.

As an NTC sponsor or exhibitor, you agree to uphold NTEN’s values and operate with your own commitment to equity and liberation. We expect those with access to our community to understand their actions reflect on NTEN and to meet the standards in the commitment.
