Join the 2018 Nonprofit Innovation & Optimization Summit

The Nonprofit Innovation & Optimization Summit started in 2016 with the simple goal of equipping nonprofit fundraisers with the practical tools needed to raise more money online. And over the past two years, the summit has grown to be a community of fundraisers all working towards the ultimate goal of unleashing generosity.

To unleash generosity, we have to transform the way the that we fundraise.

For NIO Summit 2018, we’ll be headed to the Aztec Theater in San Antonio, TX. You’ll hear new speakers, learn from another year of fundraising research, and get an online fundraising certification during our pre-conference workshop.
