STEMpunk: Techtacular 2015

Join us Wednesday April 29th in the panoramic conference center at Pacific Tower. Techtacular is a fun no-ask networking event attending by leaders from the technology and nonprofit sectors. The theme of this year’s Techtacular is STEMpunk, a splendid mixture of the Steampunk genre with STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math as we profile First Robotics, which received a technology makeover thanks to Microsoft and 501 Commons.

The Campaign for Capacity

Prominent voices within philanthropy are arguing that funders need to stop directing the specific uses of their funds and provide general operating grants. Despite studies that show this to be the most effective type of funding, the percentage of general operating grants has been stagnant for the last 10 years. The result is that nonprofits are underfunding core administrative functions and infrastructure.

Denise Louie Education Center: The Power of a Unified Team

The Denise Louie Education Center, which provides high-quality multicultural early learning and family support services to Seattle kids, wanted their leadership team to be operating on the same page. As a result, 501 Commons' Human Resources provided a series of supervisor trainings to ensure everyone is working together as a unified team.
