Meet Our Intern: Will


Hi everyone! My name is Will, and I’m super excited to be here at IT4Causes. I currently attend the University of Richmond and am serving in the capacity as Volunteer Manager. I have a passion for computer technology, but after taking an intro level computer science, I’ve discovered that my particular passions rest more in the business side of computer science—more in the areas of computer information systems and not programming.

While at IT4Causes, I hope to meet you all and to kind of facilitate a close, working relationship with the rest of the interns and staff and of course, with people who are interesting in volunteering. I’m a very warm, extroverted, and empathic person so I feel as though I will reach out to all of you before my time at IT4Causes ends. As far as my other interests and what I like to do for fun, I don’t differ from many other teenagers. When I’m not behind my computer doing class work or work for IT4Causes, you’ll find me watching Netflix or Hulu. I’m probably catching up on How to Get Away with Murder, Grey’s Anatomy or anything by Shonda Rhymes.


Volunteer Spotlight: Mindy Tanner

IT4Causes enjoys the support of great volunteers. Today’s Volunteer Spotlight is on a member of IT4Causes’ Marketing and Branding Advisory Group-Mindy Tanner.
Mindy, who started volunteering with IT4Causes in October of 2014, has a background in communications and currently works for Royall & Company. She also volunteers and takes classes at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. When asked about her volunteering experience, Mindy stated: 
 “Volunteering with IT4Causes is a great way to impact the larger Richmond community both now and in the future. IT4Causes’ unique mission not only helps nonprofits enjoy better IT at a fraction of the cost now, but also helps them increase their capacity to serve in the future through enhanced efficiency.”
Mindy has helped IT4Causes get the word out about its mission to help local small to mid-size nonprofits have safe, secure, and sustainable IT solutions by working on a variety of projects. Mindy has done everything from document review to brainstorming ideas to helping out at special events to social media strategy.
