Announcing Our 2020 Des Moines Charity Hack Nonprofits

We’re excited to announce the 2020 nonprofits benefiting from our annual hackathon. Revealed this evening at our kick-off event, they will be receiving the assistance of nearly 100 volunteers who will help create websites, databases, mapping tools, and more, for free over the next 48 hours.

Follow along on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram as we help these nonprofits over the next 48 hours. And, tune in live Saturday night on Facebook to watch the final project presentations!
