As a follow-up from Thursday's nonprofit/community organizing BoF, this session will be for folks to present particularly innovative Drupal nonprofit websites, as well as useful Drupal modules for nonprofits. Friday, 12:30 to 1:30pm, Room 156

Nonprofit Drupal case studies
The focus will be on information and techniques that will be useful to nonprofits and nonprofit Drupal developers. Come ready to show off that awesome website you built for a nonprofit -- and try to give as much "takeaway" information in 5 minutes as you're willing to disclose about how you built it.
Modules useful to nonprofits
If you've used particular modules that you find useful for nonprofits to advance their missions, keep in touch with their constituencies and allies, raise money, and engage more people in their work, come give a 5-minute summary of it!

To try to fit as many of these in as possible, let's keep each presentation to 5 minutes. If we have extra time at the end, we can have more open discussion time.

If you already know something you want to present on, leave a comment here or Twitter @rootwork -- but walk-in presentations are also welcome. :) Room 156 should have a projector available for hooking up your laptop.


For those who can't make it to this, I'm going to do my best to take notes from anything that's presented. I'll Tweet it out on #drupalcon afterwards.

Don't forget to add yourself to the Drupal nonprofit signup page -- -- if you're interested in this topic, even if you can't make it to this particular BoF.


Here are my notes -- feel free to add yours, and those who presented, feel free to comment with additions (or corrections) and/or links. Sorry I didn't capture presenters' names and companies, but again, feel free to comment with these.
