The Geneva Nonprofit Technology Conference is an event for nonprofit professionals to exchange and interact with peers, speakers and technology leaders on the most advanced technology available today.

Do some of these challenges ring true for your organization?

  • My data is scattered across multiple systems, paper documents, and sticky notes.
  • My donor information is never quite up-to-date despite my staff’s best efforts, and I don’t have a full picture of all the ways constituents interact with my organization beyond what they’ve donated.
  • It’s hard to forecast how many donations we’ll bring in this year. I don’t know where we stand today relative to fundraising targets.
  • It takes forever to compile reports for my board and funders. I wish I could more readily answer questions like: How many people did our programs serve last week, last month, and last quarter? How are we making a difference in our constituents’ lives?
  • I’m fed up with manually managing finances, sponsorships, attendance, and follow-up for events.

Join this unique event in Geneva to learn how existing and new technology can help you operate more efficiently and maximize how donations are used.
