Project Details

What We Need
  • Ongoing technological advisory for 10-15 hours over the course of 4 weeks
  • Support may include: tools set up and implementation, systems auditing, process updates
  • Note: We devised this project to connect nonprofits and volunteers for more flexible, more immediate impact. We strongly suggest you start with 4 weeks and decide from there if you'd like to continue working.
Additional Details

We need to set up a system to send information from our website (sales and email subscribers) to our email marketing program. I'm looking into Zapier and Webhooks to do this. I would love for someone to help me with this. We use Squarespace for our website and Activecampaign for email marketing.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have requirements for what we want to do, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the specific task needed to be completed, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,355 , allowing us to spend more time reaching out to new audience members and promoting our filmmakers.

This project is important and it will cut down on manual labor and therefore allow us to spend more time focusing on projects that help our community.

Project Plan

Prep: Information Sharing & Goal Setting
  • Volunteer Manager provides an outline of current state of tech capacity and needs at the organization
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of an ongoing tech capacity and need they have over the next 2-4 weeks
  • Volunteer and Volunteer Manager align on the scope of ongoing support that the Volunteer will provide to address this need
Step 1: Ongoing Support
  • Volunteer delivers ongoing support according to determined outline
  • Weekly check-ins to ensure support is being offered as agreed upon by both parties
Step 2: Training & Offboarding
  • Volunteer provides any relevant training to the Volunteer Manager to help them continue work, as necessary, after 4 weeks
