Welcoming our nonprofit community to BoxWorks


We are incredibly excited to welcome our nonprofit community to BoxWorks this week!  Our Box.org team always finds the sessions and interactions with our community enriching and inspiring.  We hope to foster an environment in which you can engage, share and learn from your nonprofit colleagues, and leave with new insights and connections.  This is our first-ever fully digital BoxWorks, and with over 25 sessions and 9 tracks, we want to be sure and point out some highlights not to be missed.

But wait, there's more... 

Visit the BoxWorks website to see the full schedule in case there are additional track sessions of interest and for all the information you need for the day.  And if your schedule permits, be sure to drop by the Box.org booth in the expo hall to say hello, and hear about recent initiatives. 

And finally, you'll be hearing about our fundraiser for human I-Tthroughout the day. This organization provides low-income individuals and nonprofits with technology, internet and digital training. In 2020, there are 82 million Americans, and many more globally, that lack access to devices and connectivity, which is more critical now than ever. With back-to-school happening now, we're focused on connecting students in underserved communities with the connectivity and technology they need to thrive this digital school year. We'll be bringing awareness to and trying to make a small step toward addressing the digital divide. Be sure to tweet away throughout the day, because for every tweet using the hashtag #BoxWorks, we're donating 5 dollars to human I-T. Learn more about this initiative here. 

Once again, we can't wait for Thursday! We're grateful for the incredible work our nonprofit community does day in and day out.  We look forward to a day of sharing, learning and preparing for #MoreGoodTogether in the days ahead.
