48in48 to Celebrate the Value and Global Impact of Volunteerism this Fall

by Angela King

One weekend can make a difference in the world.

48in48, a social-based nonprofit, is on a mission to mobilize marketing and technology volunteers to serve nonprofits worldwide. Centered around a 48-hour hackathon-style event, 48in48 connects local nonprofits and skilled marketing and technology professionals to help participating nonprofits develop a fresh new marketing strategy… and a brand new website.  Pretty cool huh!

Each team typically has at least five members with skills in project management, WordPress development, content development, UX/UI Design, and digital marketing.  Before the main event, each nonprofit takes part in 6-10 weeks of marketing, branding, and impact training. The teams will, in the end, empower participating nonprofits with the tools they need to be more successful in achieving their mission.

Launched in 2015, the inaugural event provided $1,200,000 of value to nonprofits in 48 hours. By 2025, 48in48 will mobilize 10,000 volunteers, serving 2,300 nonprofits and achieving $75m of impact!

This virtual event will take place over the weekend of October 1-3 Assemble your dream team and register here!
