5 Biggest Trends in Online Fundraising from #13NTC

By on Apr 9, 2013


This week is NTEN’s 2013 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Minneapolis. This will be my 5th NTC (New Orleans, San Francisco, Atlanta, DC, San Francisco, and now Minneapolis) and I’m excited to be presenting again this year.

My session is about the 5 Biggest Trends in Online Fundraising. I have presented this session the past few years, but each year means starting over with brand new stats and trends from across the nonprofit sector.

I will be posting my slides on this blog post following my session. Check back to get all the details.
