Welcome to impactNPO!

We are pleased to announce our 15th event in Auckland at GridAKL, 101 Pakenham Street West, Auckland.

To be part of this amazing weekend, all you need to do is get a ticket from Eventbrite.

You will be volunteering your weekend (Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November from 9 am to 5 pm) where we all will be giving back to the community by providing IT solutions to charities. We will be providing the food and drinks this weekend to keep you well fed and energised!

A big thank you to our amazing partner GridAKL who are sponsoring the venue and Github who are sponsoring the food.

FAQs

What do I need to bring?

An open mind, a smile and your own computer/laptop. Don’t forget your phone, chargers or any other gadgets that you rely on.

What's in it for me?

First and foremost we aim to help local non-profits. NPOs often have quite a lot of IT challenges. Through this, you may find that you meet new people from different companies or industries, find contacts if you're looking for work, or get to step outside of your comfort zone and learn something new through a weekend project. Or just have a fun weekend working in a team to deliver something that is really useful to the community! Furthermore, all volunteers that have successfully participated and contributed in a team for the entire hackathon will receive a Certificate of Participation for their efforts. Sweet stuff!

What can we expect as results for the NPOs?

This depends on you, your team and the needs of your chosen NPO! We have run many successful weekends, and have helped numerous NPOs with websites, IT infrastructure, design, branding, content as well as general advice. For a list of some of our accomplishments, and the NPOs that we have helped during the past weekends, have a look on our website: impactnpo.org

What about catering options?

To help us plan ahead and order food, we would love to know about your dietary requirement so please specify during registration whether you would require normal, vegetarian, or gluten-free option when you register.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at nicole[at]impactnpo.org or drop us a message on Facebook (www.facebook.com/impactnpo) or Meetup (www.meetup.com/impactnpo)

What if I have a change of plans?

Please remember to let us know at least 3 days before the event if you're no longer able to come for the full weekend, as this will allow us to free up the reservation for people on the waiting list.

Look forward to seeing you all there :)
