I am so grateful for this incredible University of Illinois student run team. They have been tirelessly devoted to the work they do, whether it be with me or others.

How We Work

At Hack4Impact, we develop software for nonprofits to make their work more efficient, effective, and far-reaching. Generally, we set up a call with potential nonprofit partners to learn more about their initiatives and goals. If our goals align, we delve deeper into project specifications, pain points, and user research before confirming the project and matching a development team. We aim to build sustainable products with long-lasting impact for nonprofits and those they are trying to help.

Initial Contact

If you believe that your non-profit organization is a good fit for the work we do at Hack4Impact, please reach out to us at [email protected].


Intro Call

We will reach out to schedule a call to learn more about your organization's ideas and goals, and also discuss the way Hack4Impact works with non-profits like yours.



Following the intro call, if there is a good fit for a partnership between Hack4Impact and your organization, we may schedule additional calls to discuss project specifications, gain a deeper understanding of the impact of the projects, and narrow down which ideas to pursue to adhere to our development timeline and stay aligned with both our goals.



Our team will continue to work with yours to gain insight through discovering pain points, conducting user research, and incorporating any other feedback from your organization. This will allow our development teams to build an optimal product for your needs!



We will review the details for the finalized project and confirm that our goals and expectations are on the same page, including timeline, project goals, and the technologies used. If everything checks out, our our project leads will contact you to begin the development process!
