And just like that, the 2021 Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC Everywhere) is over. It’s hard to believe how quickly the three days flew by!
The NTEN team deserves thanks and praise for all the work they put into the conference, which was a triumph against many obstacles. We are inspired and renewed in our commitment to provide fundraising and advocacy technology for social good. #22NTC cannot come too soon! :)
Giving Tuesday is one of my favorite days, not because our clients are so successful (they rocked it this year, we’re seeing double digit year-over-year growth) but because I get to make the Jackson River annual company match, where our staff are encouraged to donate to a cause near and dear to them (not necessarily one of our clients) and I’ll match it. Here is a sampling of where we gave this year, and of course it’s never to late to contribute if you too are moved by one of these groups.

We’re thrilled to report that Jackson River has been named for the 3rd year to the Inc5000, the list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This year we’re #3842 on the list (with similar rankings in 2014 and 2013), based on our 2015 revenue, our growing team of nonprofit-loving rockstars, and our 78% growth over 3 years.
Back in 2008, when Tom, TJ and I started talking about what our company would look like, we had some big ideas. Looking back on those early conversations and reflecting on where we are now, I wanted to share seven of the reasons we decided to start Jackson River, and highlight how far we've come.
