About The Celebration of Technology
Each November, Tech Impact, its Board of Directors and Washington, DC’s foremost technology leaders gather to celebrate the power of technology to change lives. This festive cocktail reception offers a unique opportunity to connect with some of the region’s most exciting corporate and nonprofit leaders in an intimate setting.
This event is the premier way that organizations can invest in the power of technology to do good. Donations made by Celebration of Technology sponsors help hundreds of nonprofits, thousands of their passionate employees, and countless individuals in need across the greater DC area.
One highlight of the evening is the presentation of the annual Technology Innovation Awards. Three winning nonprofits are honored, each representing different cause sectors, and each receiving $7,500 to help bring their smart technology project ideas to life. Their cash awards are also made possible by generous Celebration of Technology Sponsors.
