IT Pro Bono Experts and Skilled IT Volunteers

IT4Causes’ success depends on the service of community-minded IT professionals who are willing to commit their time and expertise in bite-sized chunks to help nonprofits better serve their missions.  If you’ve got IT knowledge and would like to volunteer, IT4Causes is here to guide you to the right opportunity.  Our staff are expert at taking the business requirements of nonprofits, identifying solutions, and breaking projects into small tasks for individual volunteers.  In general, we try to break work into pieces that the right volunteers can execute in 8 hours or less, over the course of 2 weeks.  Once that commitment is done, you can take on more or walk away knowing your time and talent contribution will be combined with the work of others as part of a sustainable solution for a great cause.  While we are actively seeking to build a base of IT pros in Central Virginia, most of our current assignments could be performed remotely. Our volunteer needs are constantly evolving with our client and project base, and right now we’re looking for volunteers with skills in these areas:

  • IT Consulting
  • Networks
  • Windows Small Business Server and Exchange Server
  • IT Security
  • End-user support
  • IT Project Management
  • Electronic Health Records
  • Access and/or SQL Database
