NITOP is an independent non-profit organization. We are not affiliated with any parent organization. Our income comes from registration and sponsorships. We’ve had to absorb a huge financial hit this year, but cancelling the in-person conference and offering the virtual conference for free was the right thing to do. We are going to survive (vaccine willing) but it will take us a long time to recover the loss. If you find NITOP useful to you, we are asking for any donation you might like to give. Click here to give.  Because NITOP is a 501(c)3 organization, donations are fully tax deductible.  We appreciate your support.
