The Human Contribution is the Essential Ingredient Ethel Andrus
Ann Arbor Give Camp 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 web site, 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.
What kind of volunteers are we looking for?
Are you a social media expert? A software programmer? A graphics designer? A database administrator? Are you in marketing or business? The local charities that serve our community need your help! By all coming together and each donating your weekend, we can help these charities with a little technology and business savvy to help them be more efficient, increase market and brand awareness, and make it easier for these charities to serve the communities that we live in. Sign up for Ann Arbor Give Camp; you bring the talent, and we will take care of the rest!
Which charities are welcome?
Are you a non-profit organization in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Toledo, Flint, Lansing, or the surrounding areas? Could you benefit from a fresh web site? Or a new registration application? Or maybe something to track your donations and volunteers? Or perhaps some help unraveling the social media mysteries of Facebook and Twitter? We are looking for area non-profits like you that have a technology need. Through Ann Arbor Give Camp, local technologists and business professionals can partner with you to create new software to help make charity life easier. There is just one caveat: the new software project must be of appropriate size to be completed in a single weekend. If necessary, our project managers are available for a short consultation on whether the scope of the project is appropriate for Give Camp Weekend. So think about how Ann Arbor Give Camp can help you, and submit a proposal! Come be a part of Ann Arbor Give Camp!
Can I sponsor Ann Arbor Give Camp?
We cannot give the Human Contribution without the help from our sponsors. Local business of all industries are welcome to participate in the weekend by donating meals or their financial equivalent to fuel the Give Camp attendees. Further information on sponsorship...
How it works?
In the weeks leading up to Give Camp 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 Give Camp 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 Give Camp 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.
