This Meetup was started because we want to provide a regular, on-going place where nonprofit professionals in Rochester can come together and learn more about the best way to support nonprofits through online technology.
We believe that NGOs often have very few resources dedicated towards technology, or their website or social media presence. This presents challenges to those supporting such organizations. But we also recognize that powerful online tools have become much more readily available and affordable. By discussing together what is working for each of us, we can all enhance our ability to do more good in the world through our organizations and their online offerings.
NONPROFIT STAFF will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those who aren't experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.
TECHNOLOGISTS AND CONSULTANTS will find opportunities to put your expertise to social good, as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in your community.
