Our Impact

We activate technologists to change the world. our volunteer network grows every year to serve community organizations nationwide. 

Overnight Website Challenge

Since the first Overnight Website Challenge in 2008, over 1300 volunteers have donated more than $7.3 million in web design and development services to 209 nonprofits. In 18 events in the Twin Cities, Chicago, Kansas City, and Phoenix,  web pros from throughout the interactive community have spent 24 hours - in a row - helping nonprofits create websites they otherwise couldn't afford.

In 2017, we revamped the event to impact more nonprofits and offer expanded technology assistance.

Coming Soon: Self-Help Resources

We are committed to helping nonprofit organizations leverage the incredible knowledge of technologists. Through our network of partners, we will be providing resources for nonprofits to understand and optimize the technologies that have been created for them.
