Hack good. Build things nonprofits need now.
Calling all engineers, designers, data scientists, and generally enthusiastic individuals! Social ImpHacked brings together tech and nonprofit worlds to provide technical assistance for local Bay Area nonprofits.
Over the course of a weekend we will solve some of the small but tangible problems that nonprofits face to increase efficiency and build relationships with existing and future clients.
We believe that by working hand-in-hand with local organizations, we can build technical solutions that truly make a difference in our communities.
So, come hack! There will be free food, music, fun, and a great network of awesome people.
All funding goes towards food, technical equipment, and space. All nonprofit attendees are invited to come, stay, and eat free of charge.
Friday, March 3rd
Saturday, March 4th

Who are we building for?
We took aim at a variety of different local issues, from homelessness to access to legal services. Every nonprofit will be on-site throughout the hackathon, and is classified as 501(c)3 nonprofit status by the IRS.
The following is a list of different nonprofits that will be in attendance:

Cool Tech < Useful Tech
If there is a technology that already exists that does what an organization needs, use that technology. We encourage people to present projects that leverage Google Forms, existing Slackbot integrations, or Wordpress, and hack if necessary.
Social ImpHacked seeks to create an inclusive environment, independent of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and physical ability. The hackathon space is handicap accessible, and we have gender-neutral bathrooms on site. For any concerns (including dietary restrictions), please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
