What is Hack4Impact?
) is a student-run nonprofit dedicated to building web and mobile software for other nonprofits. It was started by students at the University of Pennsylvania and recently has begun expanding to other schools. The UIUC chapter was founded August 2017 and we are continuing to develop our team and increase our impact as we enter our fifth semester. Our vision is two-fold: a tech industry that emphasizes social impact as a core tenet of success and a nonprofit space that is empowered by and values technology.
We collaborate with 3-5 organizations per semester to develop applications that enable the organizations to strengthen their impact. Each organization is paired with a team of 5-8 university students -- project teams consist of developers, a technical lead, a product manager, and usually a product designer.
We have completed multiple projects in areas ranging from microfinance to education. For examples of our work and client testimonials, please visit
We want to hear about issues your organization is facing, and possibly a potential solution in mind where we could help out. Examples of these may include:
- A platform that displays your organization’s resources for the public on a map.
- A tool to automate a time-consuming manual process.
- An application to keep track of the people you serve and better assess your overall impact.
- Or anything else that will empower you to broaden your impact and accelerate your mission!
We charge $1000 per semester with projects varying from 1 to 2 semesters. All client contributions feed right back into Hack4Impact to pay for operating costs, professional development events, team building, and organization retreats. Our pricing is need-based, and if your organization is not able to afford the cost, we would be happy to discuss potential fee accommodations.
