Low-cost, high-impact technology tools

The 5 tools you NEED to be using right now. The 10 reasons why you MUST be on Pinterest. 7.5 ways to increase your tech impact TODAY! Sound familiar? 

There are lots of tools out there that are low-cost or even free, but how do you know which ones are worth using? More importantly, how do you use them effectively—in a way that moves you closer to achieving your mission?

We'll share some case studies of high-impact tools that have been useful for nonprofits and activists. We'll also highlight helpful resources for 501(c)(3)s, who can get access to commercial tools at deep discounts. More information to come!

Nonprofit staffers will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those not experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.

Techies will find opportunities to hear the real-world stories of nonprofit clients, and put their own expertise to social good — as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in our community.

Activists and community organizers will see and be given the chance to present on successful uses of technology for social change. We'll explore how technology can help support activism and where activism can push it forward.
