Over 17,000 votes were cast to determine the winners. Here’s a look at all of the finalist videos:



The four winners will receive a $2500 grant from the Case Foundation to continue their work, as well as be recognized by their peers at the Nonprofit Technology Conference, the largest gathering of its kind, in Atlanta today.
