Hi I'm the new organizer for the group and I am excited to take on the responsibility.
Currently I work with the HandsOn Tech Silicon Valley program. We have worked with Google, Microsoft, and Baynetwork volunteers on a number of nonprofit IT projects and hope to recruit more skill-based volunteers.
I want to use this meetup as a way where nonprofits, community volunteers, business leaders can come together and make a difference using technology.
Just like my predecessor, I am hoping to bring together exciting technology that helps nonprofit organizations in the Bay Area. AND I hope to bring volunteers together to help nonprofits implement projects.
I can't wait to start developing this meetup further!
Please call or email me if you have any questions or ideas on meetup topics!

_______OLD GROUP INFO____________________
Technology is changing the way we live and we communicate with the outside world.
For nonprofits, technology provides a way to improve business operations, reach volunteers, donors faster and provides many other benefits.
However, many non profits face a lot of technical challenges ranging from how to set up drupal site to how to do search engine optimization and others.
This meet up group aims to bring technology folks and non profits together in an effort to enable non profits to get relevant technical help they need.
We will host regular meetups where technology folks and non profits will be invited.
Problems for non profits will be discussed, and techies will be encouraged to help them solve these problems
I have compiled a list of free technology resources for non profits
