Oct 7, 2020

The Technology Association of Grantmakers (TAG) is pleased to announce three new members joining the board of directors. Commencing their terms in January 2021, TAG’s new board members bring a variety of skills, perspectives, and experiences to steward one of the sector’s leading membership associations.

“We are overjoyed to welcome Charles, Nadia, and Nikhil as new directors after an in-depth review of the candidates from our open nomination process,” says Board President, Nicolette Lodico. “As TAG continues to evolve and broaden its membership to reflect the changing perception of IT in philanthropy, these new directors will bring to TAG a wealth of relevant experience and knowledge in both the practical and strategic aspects of technology in the philanthropic sector.”

“Given the diverse track records of each of our new board members,” says Nicolette Lodico, “I am confident that their insights will be a tremendous help in guiding TAG into the future.”

“In a spinning world, TAG helps ensure we maintain our “true north,” says Charles Boname of The Vancouver Foundation, when asked about the aspirations for the future of TAG. “Through its convening activities on not just technology but social, economic and other issues, TAG offers both safe harbor for discussion and a beacon for our organizations to chart their strategic course.”
