How GeekCause works
Got tech skills? Volunteer through GeekCause!
You can donate your expertise to a local nonprofit in your spare time and make a big impact. GeekCause is designed to make it easy for busy techies of all types and skill levels to give back.
Does your agency need tech assistance? GeekCause can help!
Technological needs can be daunting for a nonprofit. That’s where GeekCause comes in. We help nonprofits figure out how their agencies could better utilize tech, and we pair them with skills-based volunteers who can troubleshoot problems and implement solutions. Whether you have a complete vision for the help your agency needs, or you’re unsure of where to start, GeekCause and our volunteers are here to help.
GeekCause was founded in 2017 by Atiba, a Nashville-based technology consulting firm, as a way for their employees to lend their skills to local nonprofits. With 130 volunteers and eight projects complete, Atiba saw an opportunity to expand the program’s reach through a partnership with Hands On Nashville. Thanks to generous support from The Frist Foundation, GeekCause now has a home at HON, where we hope to continue the good work for great causes in our community.
