As an annual sponsor of the Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC), we believe it’s important to be an active, contributing member of the nonprofit technology community. Nonprofits provide an incredible service in addressing America’s most pressing social problems, while being an underserved industry in technology capacity and resources. We try to bridge the technology needs of the nonprofit sector with our software donation program, of which we donate on average $1 million in software a day, as well as with long-standing relationships with great nonprofit tech orgs like NTEN, host of the NTC.
So we’ll be at NTC13 – come and meet us!
Check out the Microsoft session: April 11 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Because cloud technology use is becoming more prevalent within nonprofit organizations, we’re leading a demo session on Office 365. You’ll get the chance to hear from several nonprofits who are using Office 365 on why they chose that solution, the benefits & challenges, and what migrating to Office 365 was really like. Very informative for any nonprofit thinking about productivity cloud solutions!
Come visit us at our booth!
Look out for us at the Science Fair — we’ll have a booth where attendees will can get hands-on with Microsoft technology, get information about our software donations program, and of course spend some quality time playing with an Xbox and Kinect. We’ll have a number of goodies and giveaways so be sure to stop by and say hello.
It’s party time…
And lastly, we’re once again hosting an evening reception on Saturday night (April 13th) of the conference. There will be food, drinks, Xbox gaming, and more. Don’t miss it!
We’re sending an enthusiastic team to NTC. You can meet them at the Microsoft booth and the Friday reception. See below what they had to say about the Minneapolis conference and be sure to “tweet” a hello:
|“I’m looking forward to meeting with attendees and hearing about new ideas around technology solutions that can further nonprofit impact.”
Gretchen Deo, Microsoft Program Manager
|“Nothing beats the atmosphere at NTC. It’s not a conference but a confluence of amazing people and extraordinary ideas. Hand downs, it’s the place to be if you want to learn the best tips and tricks for using technology to advance social good.”
Shanon Doolittle, Group Health Foundation Fundraising and Donor Relations Strategist
|“The best part about NTC for me are the spontaneous, unplanned interactions that happen during the evening receptions, dinners, and breaks. I’m always amazed and impressed by what other folks are up to and love discovering new opportunities to partner and collaborate.”
James Rooney, Microsoft Program Manager
|“I’m excited to attend my first NTC. I’m looking forward to making connections with the nonprofits who use our technology to advance their missions and also gaining insight into the opportunities and challenges they see in the sector. Given my role in Marketing, I’m particularly interested in some of the Communications break-out sessions.”
