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. There is a donation button on our website (www.nitop.org). Because NITOP is a 501(c)3 organization, donations are fully tax deductible. We appreciate your support.
