We’re changing Fundraising with Technology! The best way for a nonprofit to manage their technology stack is to select the right tools, platforms and people that fit their organization's needs and budget.

How technology is implemented efficiently and effectively is what BridgeTECH is all about!

Over the course of 3 days, we will explore ways that enable nonprofit organizations to establish processes, explore the tech product landscape, and consider how to train and find the best people to extract the maximum value from your technology investments. A nonprofit’s technology should be able to provide data on how the organization is progressing, help identify potential areas of improvement, and support the overall growth of the organization. This can be done through established tools like CRM systems or custom software development. Additionally, gaining access to cloud-based services can help organizations leverage the power of virtual collaboration, automation, machine learning and data analysis. Finally, it is important to consider implementing strategies and solutions that will ensure security and privacy of data, protect against cyber threats, and enable the organization to scale as needed.

Learn from industry leaders, fellow trail blazing nonprofits and each other at BridgeTECH.
 
But wait there’s more! Your education doesn’t stop on Wednesday at BridgeTECH, on Thursday and Friday during the regular Bridge Conference educational sessions, there is a track dedicated to technology AND, you can take advantage of all the other Bridge educational and networking opportunities as well as the Solutions Showcase!
