Organizational Health: Technology Trends in the Nonprofit Sector

Thursday, June 27, 2024, 2:00 - 3:30 PM

There's no question about the relevance and necessity of technology to every nonprofit’s operations today. However, the levels of strategic and equitable adoption of technology vary widely, leaving organizations vulnerable to security issues, staff impacted by ineffective or inefficient processes, and services limited by technical capacity. The T. Rowe Price Foundation's 2022 State of the Baltimore Nonprofit Sector Report revealed technology infrastructure as one of the top 5 needs nonprofits have in building capacity and technology needs is one of three strategic priorities for MPN’s State of the Sector Workgroup this year.

Join Maryland Philanthropy Network as we discuss technology trends for the nonprofit sector with Amy Sample Ward, Executive Director of NTEN, a nonprofit capacity building organization that has been building the technology leadership and confidence of nonprofit staff for 24 years. Through NTEN's research and training models, they have identified a number of trends, needs, opportunities, and priorities for increasing tech effectiveness in nonprofits of all budget sizes and mission areas.

Amy and Anne Allen, a Program Officer with the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, will talk about their experience and lessons learned from an on-going partnership between the two organizations to support nonprofit technology. Following their examples, we’ll discussion options for what philanthropy can do to support this aspect of nonprofit organizational health.

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
