Cleveland GiveCamp is a great opportunity to use technical and creative skills to help non-profit organizations reach their full potential. Nearly 200 software and database developers, coders, business analysts, graphic designers, marketing professionals, copywriters, video producers, photographers, social media experts and food service volunteers take part in the event on an annual basis, donating more than 5,000 hours throughout the weekend.
Cleveland GiveCamp is entirely volunteer-driven, even the eight-member committee which works throughout the year to plan the event, raise sponsorship dollars, recruit volunteers and coordinate event details. Volunteers represent dozens of companies throughout northeast Ohio, are current students at area universities, and even attend some of the area high schools in the region.
GiveCamp helps volunteers grow as professionals, introduces them to different people, and provides opportunities to be a mentor or be mentored. Please review the FAQ for more information.
Volunteers often take the camp part of GiveCamp seriously and pitch tents at the event so they can stay close to the action.
