Engaging the Tech Community, 2018 Fall Fundraising is upon us!
Are you a tech company in Calgary looking to come together with other technical folk to give back locally? YYC Tech Gives is geared up and ready for you to join in!
YYC Tech Gives has partnered with the Calgary Food Bank for the 8th year in a row to help Calgarians in need. The Food Bank's local focus and ability to turn $1 into $5 worth of food, along with their outreach to hundreds of other helping organizations, makes them a natural choice for our donations to have a huge impact.
With no barrier to entry other than a commitment to volunteer, donate, or fund raise on behalf of the Calgary Food Bank, YYC Tech Gives Members are as diverse as the tech landscape in Calgary. Entirely volunteer driven, every dollar contributed gets donated and with over $1 million raised to date, Tech giving is strong in Calgary.
Come see what it's all about and engage your team today. You can find out more about us at our upcoming FALL MEETING. Great opportunities for participating in group volunteer events and a behind the scenes tour of the Food Bank with the CEO are up for grabs! You'll head back to the office with a treat bag full of ideas to kick start your companies individual fundraising, or maybe you will be successful at the auction!
With the technology landscape in Calgary growing we continue to welcome new members. This year the CBC EyeOpener will not only make their annual appearance at our marquis event, the SPAM CUP, but members can volunteer to help with EyeOpener coffee sales! We're looking for teams ready to engage in these fantastic community based initiatives.
What is your team up to this fall? firstname.lastname@example.org to join!
