We currently support web based and data science projects but we are open to other different types of projects. Historically, we’ve found that the impact we can make, the amount we can learn, and the time and effort needed to build these kinds of projects fit well with our constraints and goals.
To find out more about some of the projects that we've done in the past, feel free to look through our projects page or our pitchbook, which also has additional information pertaining to our project process and timeline.
Please keep in mind that because one of our core focuses is on software engineering and developer education, our offerings currently do not include:
Basic website design and development.
We do not build websites that are purely content-based, such as Wordpress blogs or landing pages.
Technology integration or consulting.
We do not set up or integrate existing solutions such as Salesforce or Drupal.
That said, if you’re looking for help with that sort of thing, we might be able to recommend some other tools or services that fit your needs. So feel free to reach out anyway!
We absolutely recommend working with Hack4Impact. We needed to address English competency in Cambodia, and Hack4Impact was the actual organization who helped us get it done. Hack4Impact gives nonprofit organizations an opportunity to collaborate and support their mission in ways they even may not have considered.
Reach out to our team via email to get started with the application process. We'd love to hear more about your organization and potential project ideas as it will help us get an initial sense of your organization's goals, needs, and expectations while you progress through the application process.
We will reach out shortly to schedule a call to dive deeper into your organization and project ideas, while also explaining more about what we do and our goals. Then, we will also work with you to define and clarify your project ideas.
We may schedule additional calls to further tighten your project specifications. With these additional meetings, we aim to dive deep into your specific ideas to gain a better understanding of the reasoning, value, and impact of these potential projects, outline specifications for these ideas, and narrow them down to a few that we believe we can reasonably accomplish with our development timeline and that align with your organization and our goals.
We aim to create the most impactful product for your organization and ours. Our team will continue to work with your organization to gather additional insight through discovering pain points, conducting user research, and incorporating other feedback from your organization. This way, our development teams can jump right in after ideation and build the best product that serves your needs!
We will review the details for the finalized project and confirm that our goals and expectations are aligned. If everything checks out, our our project leads will contact you to begin the development process!
Hack4Impact was created in 2014 by a group of passionate students and friends with a dream to help nonprofits through technology. Since then, we've become experts on how to do so with a community of 11 other chapters. With our experience, we believe we can help you do good faster, easier, and morally conscious to make sure you are truly having an impact.
Meeting frequency is very dependent on the team and client. Generally, teams hold weekly or biweekly meetings with their clients. Other checkpoints include initial calls to scope out and define the project with our project leads, an MVP demo, and a Final Handoff presentation.
No! We take all nonprofits in different shapes and forms! We only require that you are a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
To make sure our projects have a level of necessary complexity, we require projects to have a technical difficulty higher than just a website. If you are interested in a new website for your organization, please consider free online website builders. You can learn more about projects we've taken in the past by looking at our projects for each chapter.
