About this event

FREE Lunch and Learn sponsored by NetRes!

Every nonprofit uses technology, whether or not they have a tech team or technologist on staff. When we first approached this topic we realized that questions ranged from one end of the spectrum to the other. 

If I don't know what my technology needs are, how do I hire a tech savvy person to join my team? How do I create efficiencies when my primary tech goal is to know and understand my donors? What should I know about IT and security? How do I know when to build custom software? Where do I find good off the shelf tools for nonprofits? What are some of the free or reduced cost tech resources?

If you are struggling with tech or wondering how to make better tech decisions for your nonprofit, join us for this lunch and learn session. We’ve gathered panelists from a variety of industries to offer tips, resources and best practices. We'd also love to hear about your tips, resources and  upcoming nonprofit events!
