Our event last week was fantastic. We’re grateful to Shane and Elizabeth for teaching us the ins and outs of using free and low cost tools to advance our nonprofit missions. Grassroots.org has a fantastic list of great tools, which you can see here. More information about low cost alternatives exist over at Idealware and on the EtherPad of a recent NTEN webinar on the same topic. Free tools are priceless.
