On your mark, get set…Salesforce.com Nonprofit Starter Pack Community Sprint!

Tomorrow, we will be hosting a gathering of community members for a Salesforce.com Nonprofit Starter Pack Community Sprint, and we couldn’t be more excited! What’s a community sprint? It’s an event where everyone, whether accidental techie or rockstar developer, can collaborate in person to contribute to an open source project. And, oh what a great open source project the Salesforce Nonprofit Starter Pack is! Empowering thousands of nonprofits to manage donor and supporter data, track program metrics, and do just about anything with data they need to through free or deeply discounted tools, we confess we’re massive fans and couldn’t be happier about lending a hand to help make it even better.

With the Salesforce Nonprofit Starter Pack, your nonprofit can transform its ability to connect with supporters and advance your mission.

We’ll be giving a round up of the day’s events and accomplishments here on our blog after the keyboards are set aside and the dust settles. For now, we’ll just give a massive shout out to the fantastic community members who are giving of their own time and resources to make a contribution for the good of the nonprofit sector!

It’s National Volunteer Week!

I had no idea it was National Volunteer week until Bethany at NTEN wrote this little blog post thanking all the chapter coordinators for their help in running NTEN events over the years.  While I guess I do technically volunteer as the DC NTEN Chapter coordinator, I rarely think of it as volunteering. Rather, I think of it as community building of accidental techies who are trying to do good in this mad, crazy world. And since I love meeting new people and organizing events, my NTEN happy hours aren’t something I begrudge, but instead something to which I look forward.

That being said, I hope you can join me for our next DC NTEN Happy Hour to be held on Wednesday, April 23 at Local 16. Let’s hope for nice weather as we’ll be upstairs on their outdoor patio. For more info and to RSVP, be sure to visit the event page. Hope to see you there!
