TechSoup's NetSquared community is hosting free monthly technology meetups in 74 cities globally, but with more than 39,000 members it can be hard to get a sense of the community's needs. That's why we do an annual survey of our members -- because our local volunteers are always striving to figure out how they can help your nonprofit use technology to do more good.

Why Are You a NetSquared Member?

Why are You a NetSquared member numbers version
We asked NetSquared members why they attend our meetup events. The top options were:

  • To be a part of a larger nonprofit community/networking
  • To learn how I can apply technology to my cause or organization
  • To learn about specific topics of interest

This is a very useful reminder that you attend NetSquared events to develop relationships and trust networks with your fellow nonprofit techies.

We also learned that:

  • Most NetSquared participants come from small "startup" nonprofits with no budget and no staff. They come to us looking for practical tips and a supportive community.
  • The top three technology challenges for respondents are building websites, managing data, and fundraising.
  • Participants find NetSquared valuable because it helps them make connections that help them do their job better, make better IT decisions, and increase their productivity.

You can discover more about the NetSquared community by reviewing the responses on the NetSquared blog. Or, better still, why don't you join us at our next event?
