Last month on September 18th, three award winners walked out of Tech Forward 2017 with a $10,000 check after they took the stage to share their organization's story and plan.
The Technology Innovation Awards celebrates nonprofit organizations that have inventive plans to use technology to tackle the hardest challenges. Two weeks ago on September 18th, three award winners walked out of Tech Forward 2017 with a $10,000 check after they took the stage to share their organization's story and plan.
In case you missed it, last week Tech Impact hosted its first national conference, Tech Forward, in Nashville, TN.
Tech Impact created Tech Forward for the nonprofit community to engage, learn and envision how technology can transform the way we work as nonprofits. Content was handpicked to cater to nonprofit employees in varying roles looking to use technology in a more effective way. The Tech Forward Conference provided a forum to encourage discussion on the need to shift away from operational IT and towards mission-focused and transformative applications of technology.
Questions answered by Jim Halling, Director of Corporate Development at Good360. This follow-up survey was designed to serve as a resource for understanding how grants serve nonprofits, and what obstacles grant recipients might encounter while implementing projects.
Good360 was the recipient of $7,500 in grant money to put towards a major new platform, DisasterRecovery360, seeking to prepare for, and address the short and long-term needs that follow natural disasters. The award, specifically, was to be used in the build phase, allowing Good 360 to think through what the portal should do specifically to help communities and organizations, and how it should be set up for the greatest benefit and efficiencies.
Q: How was the Technology Innovation Award of $7,500 used?
The award from the 2014 Technology Innovation Awards competition enabled Good 360 to continue to move forward with our plans to create DisasterRecovery360.
Built and managed by Good360, DisasterRecovery360 ensures that the needs of communities impacted by disaster are met in a timely manner throughout the full recovery process by ensuring the right goods are delivered to the right place at the right time.
