What we’re about
Our Tech4Good group brings together nonprofits in need of technology guidance, education, and/or troubleshooting AND technology folks interested in helping nonprofits pro bono with their technology questions/needs.
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 with local nonprofits.
ACTIVISTS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS will see and be given the opportunity to present on successful uses of technology for social change. Not content to simply focus on "shiny tech," we'll explore what the true potential for social change is in each case, where community organizing work can be made more effective, and where it will have to push technology forward.

- Virtual Working Meeting: Website Office Hours for NonprofitsLink visible for attendees
Let's get to WORK helping nonprofits with any website needs! After quick nonprofit introductions and a summary of their website goals and needs for the evenings, we'll jump into Zoom breakout rooms and get in "help mode!"
Who should come to this virtual event? Two audiences --> 1.) tech/website professionals interested in getting paired to help a nonprofit AND 2.) nonprofits in need of website help or advice!
***Request: Knowing who will be at the event is extremely important, as we'll be doing real-time allocation to pair techies with each attending nonprofit. So please only RSVP if you think you'll be able to attend! If you can no longer attend, please update your RSVP (ideally 24+ hours in advance.***
Nonprofits – Please bring the following to this event, and you’ll get paired with 1+ website professional to help you real-time:
- your website log-in credentials
- any and all website related questions
Techies - The majority of nonprofit websites tend to be WordPress, WIX or SquareSpace. The goal of this event is to help fix any small issues that can be fixed in under an hour, give them general website feedback (including UI/UX suggestions) and "teach them how to fish" (i.e. show them how to do basic things on they're website so they can be their own website administrator). If you want to offer pro bono support to the nonprofit you're paired with after the event, please offer that up, including specific commitment you're willing to make (EX. "I'll help you for two hours a month for the next 3 months.") and provide your contact information.
- Virtual: Introduction to Power BI, a Data & Reporting DashboardLink visible for attendees
Session Abstract: Power BI for Non-Technical Nonprofits
Power BI is a powerful data visualization and business intelligence tool developed by Microsoft. It allows users to easily connect to, analyze, and visualize data from a wide variety of sources. In this one-hour session, we will provide an overview of Power BI and its capabilities, with a focus on how it can benefit non-technical nonprofits.
Nonprofits often have limited resources and staff, making it challenging to effectively manage and analyze data. Power BI provides a user-friendly solution that can help nonprofits make data-driven decisions, improve their operations, and better serve their communities. With its intuitive interface and wide range of features, Power BI makes it easy for non-technical users to create interactive reports and dashboards, share insights with others, and collaborate on data analysis.
In this virtual session, we will cover the basics of Power BI, including how to connect to data sources, create reports and visualizations, and share insights with others. We will also discuss the benefits of using Power BI for nonprofits, including improved data analysis, increased efficiency, and better decision-making.
Join us to learn how Power BI can help your nonprofit unlock the power of data and make a greater impact in your community.
