Cleveland GiveCamp

Cleveland GiveCamp is an annual weekend-long event where software developers, designers, database administrators, project managers and creative professionals donate their time to create software and web-based applications for non-profit organizations. The 2014 event takes place July 18th-20th at the LeanDog Boat (former Hornblowers) and Burke Lakefront Airport on the shores of Lake Erie. The IEEE Cleveland Section has been a sponsor since the innaugural event and a number of members have participated.

The event is entirely volunteer-driven and some of the volunteers take the “camp” part of GiveCamp literally, pitching tents and staying all weekend. Great meals are provided and there are many opportunities to network with professionals from around the region. Overall, it’s a great opportunity for people to work together, develop new friendships, and do something important for the community. GiveCamp is still accepting volunteers for the July 18th event.

Some of our past projects have included:
· Data-collection applications to keep track of members or clients
· Websites to communicate with stakeholders and constituents
· Mobile phone applications
· Mobile websites

Cleveland GiveCamp brings in more than 200 volunteers, 25 nonprofits and an estimated $700,000 in free development work.
