Tech solutions for any nonprofit's budget 

More than half of small businesses surveyed say unfamiliarity with digital tools is a challenge. Meanwhile, a whopping 89 percent of nonprofits lack confidence in their digital approach. Tech issues can snowball and hold many agencies back from effectively meeting the needs of their clients. That's where Hands On Nashville's GeekCause program comes in. We pair skills-based volunteers with agencies in need of their services for low-cost, high-impact tech solutions. Have a project in mind? You can get started by requesting a GeekCause consultation. Just looking for a starting place to begin critically looking at your agency's tech? Request a Virtual CIO Conversation!
