Friday Philanthropy: Bridging Technology and Non-Profits

Last weekend at Social Dev Camp I had a great conversation with Veronica Ludwig (@VeronicaLudwig) and Estrella Rosenberg (@CharityEstrella) about how it makes sense for non profits to leverage technology to maximize the impact of limited dollars. The sad fact is though, non-profits often don’t have the knowledge or resources needed to implement solutions that would save time and money.

Enter Chicago Counts, Net Squared, and my friend Heidi Massey (@HeidiEKMassey). Heidi Massey is the organizer (and heart) behind the Net Squared Chicago Counts Conference Uniting Nonprofits & Technology. The conference is Sunday, September 12th at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.

I am excited to support this opportunity to bring together technology professionals seeking meaningful volunteer opportunities with organizations struggling to manage their technology needs. Featured speakers include Geoff Livingston (@geoffliving) co-founder of Zoetica, and Nate St. Pierre (@itstartswithus) founder of ItStartsWith.Us. Rumors are a-buzz that non-featured speaker Fred Cadena might also be presenting a session.

If you are in Chicago, involved in technology, and have a heart for giving this is the place to be September 12th. Tickets available now.
