One weekend. 12 Charities.

Geeks Giving Back

Every October, technical professionals meet at Miami University, Voice of America Campus to help other non-profit organizations with professional services.

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event that brings together a community of volunteers who donate their time and talents to provide web and software solutions for local non-profit organizations.    The volunteers include designers, developers, database administrators and other technology professionals as well as staff from the various charities.  Since its beginnings in 2007, the GiveCamp program has spread to many communities throughout the United States, including Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Lansing, and Southwest Ohio.    

The Southwest Ohio GiveCamp program has provided benefits to several dozen local charities, worth thousands of dollars in software services.   The yearly event is organized by volunteers from the local technology communities.
