We believe that technology has the power to change our world for the better. To make it happen, we need to harness collective intelligence and develop software & algorithms ethically and with transparency.
The Ovio Foundation helps nonprofits, NGOs and social impact organizations through two programs that complement our tech volunteering efforts and capacity building in the social sector.
Our goal is to help your organization build up the capacity needed to make us useless.
for social impact
Our team is here to help social impact organizations learn about existing technologies, and build new collaborative solutions. The Ovio Foundation will propose grants to nonprofits who are interested in open-sourcing their work. The grants can be associated with mentoring and access to technical expertise.
For social impact organizations of all sizes, harnessing technology effectively can be a daunting task. Ovio engineers help make the right decisions early on and ensure the sustainability of their projects. We help build collaborative solutions to scale impact and attract talented volunteers.
Talented developers can use their most valuable and powerful skills to support the causes they care about.
57% of NGOs claim to have staff limitations, which is a major obstacle to their digital development. They either lack financial resources to hire top quality engineers or only have help from short-term volunteers who lack the bandwidth to see projects through to completion.
The work of the Ovio foundation aims to:
Provide volunteering support to organizations without forcing them to cut into their budgets
$ worth of tech saved per year by organizations compared to outsourcing or hiring
Offer a top-quality tech that allows organizations to develop great products and services that fits your beneficiaries' needs
Years of experience of volunteers engaging with Ovio
Maintain sustainable support that strengthens organizations’ resources for years to come
Retention of volunteers engagement on a project
