Sponsorships for NetHope’s 20th Anniversary Global Summit are selling fast as the organization prepares to celebrate 20 years of collective action.

Nine companies have so far decided to sponsor November’s Summit,

NetHope’s 20th Anniversary Global Summit will take place on 15-19 November 2021. It will be fully virtual for the second year running following the success of the 2020 Summit, which was NetHope’s biggest and most diverse Summit ever, hosting more than 1,400 attendees from 100 countries.

The 2021 Summit will be a milestone celebration of NetHope’s collective story. A celebration of 20 years of digital transformation. 20 years of partnership and collaboration. 20 years of pushing boundaries in order to reach more people with essential support.

“The NetHope Summit is always a catalyst for change and innovation. With all the challenges of the past 12 months, particularly for the world’s most marginalized communities, we feel this year’s Summit is hugely important and has great potential to catalyze more and better impact,” says NetHope CEO Lance Pierce. “Our grateful thanks go to the organizations who have already chosen to sponsor our 20th Anniversary Summit. They are part of the NetHope community. A community that has accelerated digital transformation in the name of helping people and planet across the nonprofit sector for the last two decades.

“This year’s Summit is an opportunity to celebrate the impact we’ve had thus far, and to collaborate together – leading nonprofits, innovative technology companies, and policy makers – for even more impact moving forwards.”

As the global pandemic continues, confidence in the convening value of NetHope persists, both among NetHope’s Members and the technology companies that partner with us. The NetHope community is growing: two new nonprofit Members joined NetHope in April this year, and nine technology companies and partners have already committed to sponsoring the Summit, with many more in discussions about the potential of sponsorship.

“We believe that story telling (of success or even lessons learned!) should inspire as many as possible.  Wipfli’s 2021 NetHope Summit Engagement Sponsorship is a testament to this inclusive sharing in a way that every nonprofit can benefit in every corner of our world.  This is why the NetHope Summit is the must-attend nonprofit event of the year.

- Ryan E Risley Principal and Chief Technology Officer, Wipfli LLP

Representatives from global nonprofits, leading technology companies, and funding organizations will be in attendance at NetHope’s 20th Anniversary Global Summit. It promises to be NetHope’s biggest event yet, with some renowned keynote speakers already confirmed. The 2021 event will celebrate 20 years of collective action. From 15 to 19 November, NetHope technology partners and Members will be collaborating together, with other NGO workers and policy makers, for sustainable and ethical transformation.

NetHope brings nearly 60 of the world’s leading NGOs together with technology giants to utilize digital in a collective effort to improve the world. The NetHope Global Summit is the largest gathering of NetHope Members each year.

Without the following generous sponsors, the 2021 NetHope Global Summit would not be possible. The NetHope team is hugely grateful to all of our sponsors for their investment in the vision of NetHope, and their contribution to this year’s event.
