Seattle GiveCamp 2022 is Accepting Proposals for Pro-Bono Nonprofit Software Solutions
Seattle GiveCamp is now accepting proposals from Seattle-area nonprofits interested in pro-bono software solutions. In case you are not familiar with us, Seattle GiveCamp is a “hackathon for good,” taking place over a weekend during October, where programmers, designers, and other software professionals donate their time to create custom software for nonprofit organizations. This software solution might be a web site, desktop app, database, or some other piece of software that you need coded, designed, updated, or configured.
Seattle GiveCamp 2022 is scheduled from Friday, October 21 to Sunday, October 23. This year will be a hybrid event with both online participation as well as in person at the Microsoft campus in Redmond, depending on COVID restrictions when we get to October. If your proposal is accepted, that’s when all the magic occurs. A team of software professionals dedicated to your project will give their all during GiveCamp weekend to take your ideas and make them into a reality. All, at no cost to your organization. And while all the magic will happen that weekend in early October, a lot of preliminary work must be done before that time, including raising money from sponsors, buying t-shirts, ordering food and drink, enrolling volunteers, and, most importantly, reviewing the proposals to pick the projects that are both worthy and doable. That’s why it’s important to get your proposal in soon.
Our submission process is pretty simple: complete the online application form (see below) which includes a number of detailed questions about your organization and your proposal. The online application form fairly short and can be completed in a few minutes. But you should spend some time first coming up with a good idea for what you want us to work on. And do realize that while the event is at no cost to you, one of the requirements is that you need to be onsite during the Seattle GiveCamp event for several hours each day.
Nonprofits are invited to submit proposals on the Nonprofit page. At this URL, you will also find information outlining the rules and guidelines for submitting proposals as well as the link to the online application form. Please make sure you read the rules and guidelines completely before you begin! The deadline for proposals is August 31, 2022.
