GeekCause recognizes that non-profit organizations – just like their for-profit counterparts – rely heavily on technology to achieve their mission of helping others. Services such as IT support, network security, optimization, website development and digital marketing are all essential to a non-profit’s day-to-day needs.
But typically non-profits (especially smaller ones) have limited budgets and cannot afford the high, ongoing costs of traditional technology consulting firms. Oftentimes non-profits are forced to rely on donated time or simply have to choose to do without certain services.
The good news is there are thousands of technology professionals that would like to donate their time to help a non-profit. Most have full-time jobs, but a volunteer opportunity that didn’t intrude on their day job would be an ideal fit. But where to start?
That’s why we founded GeekCause. Our dual mission is to address the technology needs of small non-profits while at the same time helping technology professionals find a volunteer opportunity that fits both their passion and schedule.
