Community Impact Projects

Your nonprofit has the passion and drive to bring change to the community, but lacks the funds and other resources necessary to achieve your mission.

We get that. That’s why we’re here.

Apparo's Community Impact Projects (CIP) partner a nonprofit in need of a technology solution with a corporate volunteer to address that need. Projects vary from developing technology plans and business process assessments to network infrastructure, custom development, website and more. 

Together, we can make a difference. 


How Does a Community Impact Project work?

Community Impact Projects are 3 to 6 month long projects (depending on complexity of the project) facilitated by Apparo. After assessing the area(s) in which your nonprofit needs assistance, you will be matched with an expert team of corporate volunteers. Through a series of meetings facilitated by an Apparo partner, your volunteer team will design and implement an ideal solution.

Worried that you’ll be left with a solution you can’t sustain? Don’t be! Apparo remains engaged in every project meeting to ensure that the nonprofit business model is well-represented, and that you have a thorough understanding of and are ready to sustain your solution.

You won’t be left alone—a volunteer will be able to guide you every step of the way.


What type of business and technology needs does a Community Impact Project cover?

Whatever your business or technology need, we will find a corporate volunteer to supply it. From marketing strategy to database management, the goal is to give your organization the business solutions it needs to reach more, serve more and care more.

Here are a few areas where Apparo Community Impact Projects have helped local nonprofits:

  • Tech needs assessment 
  • Application selection (CRM, Donor, volunteer management platforms)
  • Technology planning & strategy
  • Responsive website design
  • Marketing/Social Media/Communications plan


Is a Community Impact Project the right move for you?

If you’re a nonprofit in the Charlotte area and achieving your nonprofit’s mission is being hindered by business or technology challenges, then a Community Impact Project is for you.

By the end of your Community Impact Project, you will not only have more tools and resources to effectively help the community, but also connections that can benefit your organization for years to come.
