What: LA Tech4Good leverages technology for social impact in the greater Los Angeles area. We're sponsored by NTEN, the Nonprofit Technology Network, at http://www.nten.org and TechSoup's NetSquared network http://www.NetSquared.org
Who: We welcome nonprofit professionals, social entrepreneurs and anyone interested in the intersection of tech+social good.
When: Our monthly meetups cover a wide range of topics, with quarterly, themed, networking events.
Where: We typically meet in Downtown Los Angeles, and we are so grateful to our event hosts for their hospitality.
Why: Los Angeles is home to more non-profit organizations than any other city in the U.S.A. We have unparalleled diversity, measured by a wide number of criteria: ethnicity, age, gender, sexual identity, languages spoken, industry experience, and more. LA Tech4Good exists to bring together people from all literal and figurative corners of our city for conversation and community building.
How to Help: We need 1-2 people for each event in order to make them happen. Tasks include contacting speakers, arranging for venues, event promotion, and buying snacks. If you would like to be a guest speaker at one of our events, please contact us.
We will guide you through 3 simple strategic approaches for taking your major giving program to new levels - or starting one from scratch - and how you can customize Salesforce to make it achievable for any size organization.
Everyone knows that your donor database is your most important tool to capture the major gifts that will transform your organization and fuel your mission. But in the day to day of going through the fundraising motions with the same old supporters, it can seem impossible to break through to new major donors or move your existing ones to higher levels of engagement. It doesn’t have to be!
