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 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!

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

Sponsor options

We want you to get the most out of your sponsorship of NTEN's conference. So we’re excited to offer packages you can customize from an à la carte list of benefits with transparent pricing and helpful examples. In addition, though we can’t negotiate pricing, we offer discounts for minority- and women-owned businesses.

Your sponsorship allows attendees to participate at the lowest possible cost. NTC’s attendee pricing encourages participation from organizations of all sizes and budgets. When evaluating a sponsorship's ROI, remember to include the visibility of your investment in the community alongside tangible benefits. Please note that we do not share attendee lists to protect attendees' privacy. We’re upfront about this, so you can decide if NTC sponsorship matches your goals.

As a 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 the community to understand their actions reflect upon NTEN and to meet the standards set in that commitment.
