Tech4Good Brings Together Local Nonprofits for Giving Tuesday

Posted on

Mayors Letter  In less than a month, six Central Florida nonprofits will launch the first ever collaborative campaign on Giving Tuesday to support Orlando’s growing needs.

Orlando Gives was born from a brilliant conversation at Tech4Good’s session on preparing for Giving Tuesday. Fast forward to today, each organization has brought their best to initiate an effort unlike anything Orlando has seen with the support of Orlando’s Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County’s Mayor Teresa Jacobs as well as local companies and individuals.

Melissa YakimetzWhen the opportunity came to be a part of a nonprofit tech community right here in Orlando, I couldn’t refuse. My entire career has been for-profit. After having a small taste of a nonprofit I craved another opportunity I could lend my skills and talents to. I heard about Tech4Good for the first time when I stumbled upon this opportunity. I immediately fell in love with the mission and vision of Tech4Good!

As the event chair I hope to engage our community with stimulating events as well as provide a resource hub for nonprofits. In the future our members can expect more workshops, webinars, and panel discussion events! This June we are teaming up with Orlando Tech Association for their National Day of Civic Hacking. I am very excited to join OTA for this great event!

I have no doubt that Tech4Good will become a huge success here in Orlando. I am absolutely blown away by the welcoming we have received from the community! I am extremely excited to see our membership continue to grow so we can all create a wealth of information and success stories for nonprofits alike.
