What does it mean to work with us as a nonprofit?

We love organizations that want to use technology to make an impact! We are however geared towards working on some of the highest technical needs of nonprofits such as building CMS systems, integrating JavaScript libraries, and potentially helping with mobile development. We don’t quite provide help with marketing or website work; we’re more looking for nonprofits that are highly technical and need help with programming type of projects – this is our niche. The three things we ask for are:

  • Your projects are open source
  • You have at least 1 engineer on staff to support the project
  • Your technology is being used in the field (later-stage projects)

What’s it going to cost?

Our commitment is to provide this service as a contribution to the Nonprofit Tech4Good Community. We are funded through the generosity of our coporate partners and individual donors and foundations.
