Ann Arbor GiveCamp 2020 - Non-Profit Proposal | Washtenaw Community College | Friday, 18. September 2020

Does your organization have a technology need? Does your website look like it was made in the '90s? Are you frustrated by using Excel to track donations or volunteers? Do you need something better?
What is GiveCamp?
Ann Arbor GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where local technology experts, business professionals, and charity personnel come together to ease the burden of area non-profits through technology. Non-profits have serious technology needs that they often cannot afford on their limited budgets; needs such as a new website, efficient email, a donation tracking application, and more. Through Ann Arbor Give Camp, the local community can come together, partnering charities with area technology experts, software programmers, marketing and brand identity analysts, graphics designers, and more, all in an effort to help out a good cause.

Helping Charities in Need
Technology experts, business professionals, and other industry experts from throughout Southeast Michigan come together once a year for Ann Arbor GiveCamp, and we invite you to be a part of it. At Ann Arbor GiveCamp, our volunteers partner with you and your organization to help solve your technology needs, improve your business strategies, your brand awareness, so that you can focus on what you do best: helping others. Have members of your organization join our software developers, graphics designers, marketing experts, and more, to meet your needs and gain thousands of dollars in services. By partnering with Ann Arbor GiveCamp, we can all work together to complete your project and meet your needs.
There is just one rule: the project must be completed in the weekend.
To get started, submit your project to be part of GiveCamp. Tell us about your need and what you would like to build, together, with Ann Arbor GiveCamp. We are available to work with your charity representative to define the scope of your project to ensure that it can be completed in a weekend. If your project is selected for GiveCamp, your charity representatives and assigned volunteers will work closely together throughout the weekend and turn your dream--your vision--into a reality.
Plenty of food and drink is provided. We'll bring the technical know-how. You bring your dream, your knowledge of your organization, and your unbridled passion for your cause. Come and volunteer your weekend with us as we combine your talents with the business, design, and technical expertise of other volunteers to make your organization's dreams come true.
How does it work?
In the weeks leading up to GiveCamp Weekend, the event organizers work with area non-profits to identify software projects that can be completed in a single weekend while local volunteers sign up to participate in the event to complete the identified projects. At GiveCamp Weekend, charity representatives will join together with matched technology and business volunteers to complete the project. Charity representatives give input, learn the new systems as they are created, and overall participate in the completion of this new project while the volunteers work diligently to complete the more technical aspects of the project. Sponsors make the weekend happen, helping Ann Arbor GiveCamp provide all of the necessary food, drink, and facility to fuel the endeavor. And all of these pieces come together over 48 hours in September to bring new technology to those who most need it.
