Nonprofits receive services they wouldn’t otherwise have been able to afford, and skilled professionals gain unique, challenging, and rewarding volunteer experiences. It has been a classic win-win.

We’ll share our experiences from the funder, provider, and recipient perspectives, and describe models that have worked along with those that haven’t. Participants will walk away with ideas on how to apply what we learned to their own attempts at engaging tech volunteers.
