Philly GiveCamp, a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for 30 nonprofit organizations, is happening again this year from Friday, January 16 to Sunday, January 18 at Microsoft’s office in Malvern, PA.
Philly GiveCamp was established in 2010 by Danilo Diaz. This is the first year that Philly GiveCamp is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
At last year’s event, 60 Philly GiveCamp volunteers helped 27 Philadelphia-area nonprofit organizations save over $135,000 in technology resource costs.
“This year’s GiveCamp is sure to be the biggest and best yet. Last year we hosted 60 volunteers and 27 nonprofits, and this year our goal is 120 volunteers and 30 nonprofits,” said Kayla Heineman, communications committee lead at Philly GiveCamp.
The hackathon is completely free of charge for both volunteers and nonprofits, and both technical and nontechnical volunteers are needed for the event.
“We need nontechnical volunteers to help with check in and food distribution,”said Heineman. “Any technical volunteers with skills in application development, web development, Salesforce.com development or database administration are encouraged to participate.”
Some of the nonprofits participating this year include:
- Asia Adams Save OUR Children Foundation
- Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia
- Chester County Improvement Project,
- Cumberland Cape Atlantic YMCA
- Family Support Services
- Inter-Faith Housing Alliance
- National Nursing Centers Consortium
- Operation Jack Autism Foundation
- PathStone Corporation,
- Potential Inc
- Prince Hall Alumni Foundation
- Project HOPE
