Technology and passion can change the world. When combined, they are an unstoppable force.
Inspired by the international GivingTuesday campaign, Amicus is working to ensure that the conversation around generosity is an ongoing one. You can read more about our efforts here. This week in our ongoing #GivingTuesday campaign, Raja Musunuru, Chief Technology Officer at Amicus.io, is highlighting Apparo.
While non-profits traditionally lack necessary resources to maximize their ultimate impact, Apparo provides organizations with access to IT education and training, as well as affordable IT solutions.
Charlotte-based Apparo has served over 500 non-profits and provided a value of $2.4 million in technology services in the past year. Over the past seven years, Raja has joined other corporate volunteers who have generously shared their passion and expertise to solve technology challenges for several non-profits in Charlotte.
"Any engagement with Apparo is always rewarding. It grounds you in the reality of the challenges a lot of neighbors in our community deal with every day and the wonderful organizations that work to make a difference with limited resources, limited tech expertise and limited funding. A lot of things we take for granted in our daily work lives are game changers for these organizations. It is very rewarding to be part of this program that will help them become 10-20 times more efficient in how they fulfill their mission," says Raja.
Apparo offers volunteer opportunities for a wide range of skillsets. Find the opportunity that fits you best on their volunteer page.
