The Premier Tech Gathering for Social Good

October 15–17, 2019 | Nashville, TN

Join thousands of fundraisers, marketers, administrators, executives, and industry thought leaders from across the social good community to get inspired by today’s trends and tomorrow’s tech innovations, and become part of a community like no other.

“Conferences like bbcon are invaluable to the nonprofit community because they bring us all together. We might be from different organizations in different geographies and have different titles, but when we sit down at a table together we realize that we all face the same challenges. We all have to do more, with less, yesterday. bbcon gives us the chance to collaborate and be creative in an environment where we’re all open to learning.” – Amy Sample Ward, Chief Executive Officer, NTEN
