Goodie Hack is an intense and high energy 10 hour event where non-profits with a focus on under-served communities present their top operational problems to an audience of techies (web developers, designers, etc) and non-techies (business professionals, teachers, purpose-driven leaders, and everyday people) who form teams to brain and develop web and mobile apps to solve these problems. The thought is to remove some of the obstacles so these awesome non-profits can help more people.

As a program of Amplify 4 Good, Goodie Hack strives to help raise the basic need averages of under-served communities, relative to education, health & wellness, economic development, safety, and environmental sustainability, around the world up to their respective countries’ national averages. 

What We Do

The stages we cover.

Stage 1: Education

We work with social enterprises on their operational challenges so they can present them in a way which makes it easy for people to understand and solve.

Stage 2: Idea Hacking

Techies and non-techies come together for 10 hours to learn about the organizations’ challenges and to generate ideas on web or mobile apps to solve them.

Stage 3: App Development

After Goodie Hack, each team has 90 days to develop a prototype of their idea and they’ll license it to their assigned social enterprise at no cost. We help guide each team through this process.

Our Impact

Just some of the purpose-driven organizations our attendees have increased capacity for by brainstorming and developing web or mobile apps.

  • Tracey Jackson (UX Designer | Miami, FL)

    I had an amazing time at Goodie Hack. I appreciated the fact that the participants gave their time to create a solution for non-profits who are in need. That’s what service is all about. I am very much looking forward to the next one.

  • Travis Stegall (Non-Profit Executive | Atlanta, GA)

    I was totally blown away by the amount and caliber of talent in the room yesterday. As a small social enterprise, the experience was invaluable. Smaller organizations are in such need of what you guys did in order for us to be on an even playing field.
