June 23rd Community Forum:
"Connecting Tech with Nonprofits: A Candid Discussion with Three Tech Leaders"

We're on to something big... 

Our last community forum was the most successful in our 15 year history, with riveting dialogue about the intersections between nonprofits, tech companies, and philanthropy.

So we're going deeper...

This time we recruited three tech-industry leaders whose work overlaps in meaningful ways with the nonprofits world, either as funders or collaborators. You'll hear their stories, join the dialogue, and walk away with actionable and insightful information.

We believe open dialogue and education is the first step in bridging the gap between technology companies and nonprofits in our community. All three of our Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have both meaningful nonprofit experience and significant business acumen, so this should be an exciting and highly anticipated forum.
