We help local nonprofits leverage technology and improve business processes to expand their ability to create positive social change in our community.
What We Believe
Nonprofits are devoted and purpose-driven, but often lack the resources to reach more people in need. Connecting nonprofits to corporate volunteers gives them access to IT education and training, and affordable IT solutions that they need to effectively achieve their missions. Philanthropy is woven into Charlotte’s corporate fabric, with employees who are eager to support a cause and impact the community using their skills.
