Cleveland GiveCamp is a gathering of volunteers with technical, creative and organizational skills who come together for one weekend each year to partner with area nonprofits and help bring their technical projects to life. Our work is completely free of charge.
What do we do? We work with organizations on tech projects that can be completed in a weekend. Most commonly, we develop websites that help our nonprofit partners operate more efficiently and reach and serve their constituents more effectively. We have also built mobile apps and games and helped organizations with other kinds of tech projects.
Who do we work with? The nonprofits we work with offer vital services and programs across Northeast Ohio. They are arts organizations of all kinds, nonprofit health care providers and groups that address poverty, hunger, racism and other issues of great concern throughout our region.
How are nonprofits selected for Cleveland GiveCamp? Organizations submit applications, and we choose our partner nonprofits based on feasibility (projects must doable in one weekend) and the financial need for our services. Most of our nonprofit partners have very limited budgets and can’t afford to hire companies to help them realize their tech projects.
What does my nonprofit need to do to be considered for Cleveland GiveCamp? Think about what you need. Look at your schedule. If you have a feasible project (we can work with you if your idea needs a bit more development) and at least one decision maker in your organization who will commit to attend the entire GiveCamp weekend (July 26-28, 2024, at Hyland in Westlake), we hope you will submit an application. (We will begin accepting them in March; stay tuned.)
