The goal of the Drupal Non Profit summit is to provide a space for people who use Drupal for Non-Profit Tech to connect with each other and share knowledge about the pros, cons, highs, and lows of using Drupal in the Non-profit world. Our hope is that you will leave this summit with a stronger sense of community and collaboration, and with connections you can reach out to as you begin (or continue!) to use Drupal to help great organizations do great work.
