Our goal at BoxWorks will be to raise awareness and $100K for NetHope and their Center for the Digital Nonprofit.  Box.org will match the first $25K donated by Box employees and BoxWorks attendees.  You can spread the word to donate through the webpage here or by texting box to 707070. We're also excited for an announcement by #ImpactCloud coalition members Okta and PagerDuty, and their peers from Zoom and Slack, that will be made by our CEO Aaron Levie on day one in support of NetHope!

Funds raised at BoxWorks19 will accelerate the mission of PATH, a NetHope member and world health innovator, and other nonprofits, by funding NetHope’s Center for the Digital Nonprofit. Specifically, NetHope will scale the process they use to help PATH imagine the next breakthrough opportunity in world health.

To hear all the updates and a conversation with inspiring nonprofit leaders, be sure to attend the day two morning keynote on Friday October 4th at 9am at Moscone or online.  NetHope's CEO Lauren Woodman and PATH's Vice President, Technology, Analytics and Market Innovation & Chief Data Officer, Jeff Bernson, will discuss their important work with Box Chief Product Officer, Jeetu Patel.  It will be a conversation you don't want to miss.

Finally, Here's background on how NetHope employs Box to scale and secure their vital work.  NetHope recently announced the public release of their DNA (Digital Nonprofit Ability) Assessment, formerly only available for their large NGO members, that they'd love for all nonprofits to take and benefit from.  Nonprofit IT leaders can find and take it online for freehere.

We look forward to seeing this next week!  #MoreGoodTogether
