Nonprofit News

Free Technology Help for Nonprofits

Need a website made for your nonprofit, or updates added to an old one? What about help figuring out how the computers in your office are networked? Did your organization just get a new computer, but isn't sure how to set it up properly? Has your printer stopped working?

STAN (SEEDS Technical Assistance for Nonprofits) is a volunteer organization run through Reed College's community service program. We pair students who have technical skills-- ranging from basic web design, to general office tech support, to network and hardware administration-- with nonprofits that need help acquiring and using technology, on both a short- and long-term basis. Although we can't guarantee help with every problem, we'd love to find a student who can do technology volunteer work for you.

What: Join The Forest Park Conservancy as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of Forest Park's dedication with another community-wide volunteer work party. Our March event rallied over 165 volunteers, and we are hoping for an even larger turnout this time around.

When: 9 am to 1 pm, with a volunteer appreciation party to follow. Volunteers will receive food and beverages, and we will be raffling off KEEN shoes, Forest Park map sets, and passes to the Columbia Sportswear employee store.

Fundraising/Volunteering Opportunity!

A.K.A. Science, an after school science program for low-income Portland schools, needs help putting together science supply kits for its classes. We will donate a percentage of money to each group that helps us out! This is usually about $10 per kit completed. Times are flexible- a group can sign up for any time from 9 am to 9 pm on September 25-28. It's fun and easy, and mostly consists of counting and sorting supplies. Snacks provided!

If your organization, group, club, or non-profit is looking to raise a little bit of money while helping us out, please contact Lisa Pitts at [email protected]  or 503-682-1300, ext. 101.
