With a generous grant from the Foundations that support the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium, we are gearing up for the 2020 Extreme Nonprofit Makeover.
The Extreme Nonprofit Makeover is an annual TechTriad project that provides a local nonprofit member of the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium, with a technology makeover. Started by TechTriad in 2005 with a new website for a local nonprofit, the project has grown to include six companies who provide their talents free of charge.
The Extreme Nonprofit Makeover is funded by a grant from The Cemala Foundation and occasional grants from other foundations and institutions. There is no charge to the annual recipient.
Local 501(c)(3) nonprofits who are members of the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium are eligible and the focus of their work must be local.
The GNPC is low-cost and high-reward.
Nominations and applications are open Jan. 6 – Feb. 15, 2020 and close at 6pm on Feb. 15.
WE DO NOT CHOOSE HOME-BASED NONPROFITS.
The nonprofit’s work must be carried out predominantly in Guilford County, NC.
The Extreme Nonprofit Makeover began in 2005 as a TechTriad project initiated by Dr. Sue Polinsky to help a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Greensboro with a new website so they could more easily preserve Afro-American history. In 2005, we built a website for the Afro-American genealogical project and the Extreme Nonprofit Makeover was born.
Each year from 2005 – 2009, TechTriad searched each year for a nonprofit who did fabulous work for our citizens. We built a new, free website for each group.
We received a multi-year grant from the Weaver Foundation that paid for the nonprofit’s new computers, servers, tablets, large-screen TVs, cameras and software. In 2017, The Cemala Foundation provided our grant. TechTriad and all the community-caring companies on the team are proud to offer this community service project for free to help the wonderful nonprofits who make our community stronger. In 2018, our grant comes from the foundations that support the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium.
