According to the Leading on Opportunity Task Force study, Charlotte ranks last out of 50 major cities for the ability to escape poverty. Your nonprofit supports economic opportunity and works to improve that ranking every day. And with the right technology, you could be unstoppable.
What if you could uncover ways to more efficiently and effectively achieve your mission by tapping into innovative, pro bono consulting? And then, what if you were given the funding and support to make it happen?
If your nonprofit meets the eligibility criteria (see FAQs) below, you are welcome to participate. There is no application process. Simply fill out the registration form when it opens for the next cycle.
