Technology can help charities be more efficient, spread the word about their programs and goals, and help more people.

But many organizations have a difficult time raising enough money to invest in technology projects—especially since donors are often more focused on supporting services than infrastructure.

Join us on Tuesday, November 27, for a live online discussion that will explore how to attract donors and grant makers who are willing to support technology projects. We’ll also share examples of nonprofits that are using technology to advance their missions in innovative ways.
