Hack4Impact (hack4impact.org) 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 beginning to scale as we enter our fourth 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, and a product manager.

We have completed dozens of projects in areas ranging from microfinance to education, tackling issues such as juvenile justice and nonprofit overhead. For examples of our work and client testimonials, please visit http://uiuc.hack4impact.org/projects.

We want you to propose applications that will address your organization’s needs. Examples of these may include:
- A platform that displays your organization’s resources for the public on a map.
- A system to communicate with and collect data from users via text message surveys.
- A tool to automate a time-consuming manual process.
- An application that allows you to keep track of the organization's activities and see where cost cutting can occur.
- 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!

We generally charge $2000 per project. Our pricing is need-based, and if your organization is not able to afford the cost, we will be happy to lower or even waive the fee. All client contributions feed right back into Hack4Impact to pay for professional development events, speakers, organization retreats, and operating costs.
