What is Compile KC?
Compile KC is a 3-day event that pairs local Kansas City nonprofits with tech, design and marketing professionals for a weekend of fun and giving back. In one weekend we aim to give our selected nonprofits a new web site, updates to an existing web site, small online applications, branding, marketing, social media engagement or storytelling and brand awareness.
Nonprofits often do not have the funds to get these types of services, while tech, design and marketing professionals may not volunteer for charity work because the needs are not adequately publicized.
Is Compile KC only for Developers?
No way! We want developers, designers, business analysts, project managers, SEO, branding/marketing experts so we can have a robust team that can work together to makes things happen!
What can I expect if I attend?
Technology professionals accepting the challenge to volunteer their weekend to help nonprofits, who in turn better serve our community with usable, visible, web sites or functional applications.
Swag for all attendees
Food catered throughout the event; breakfast, lunch and dinner
Awards Ceremony at the end of the event
Do I have to stay the whole time?
We break every night at 12:00 A.M. and regroup at 7:00 A.M. We understand this is a big commitment. You are not required to stay the entire time. However, the more time you can commit, the greater it will improve the experience for you, your fellow teammates and the nonprofits we are helping out. Amazing ideas and great teams fall apart when people bail and the remaining members are left to complete the process. This event is all about donating your time and talent to give back to your local community.
Each participant will be a part of a team for a nonprofit. We expect each of these teams to self manage and communicate when they'll be at the event space.
How much does it cost?
This event is FREE! All meals are included. We rely solely on the generosity of our sponsors to make this event possible.
