About This Event

In our inaugural event in Atlanta 2015, we delivered over $1,200,000 of value to Atlanta Nonprofits within the span of 48 hours by building 48 websites, 4 logos, writing 48 blog posts, and more. This huge undertaking took a team of over 150 dedicated professionals only 48 hours!

Because of the success of this first event, 48in48 is now expanding to NYC this November while continuing with the annual Atlanta event this October!

Here’s what went down during the inaugural 48in48:

  • 48 websites
  • 4 logos
  • 48 blog posts
  • 2 in-person training sessions for the nonprofits on how to use the new site
  • Training on how to setup and use Google Grants
  • 6 to 12 months of hosting and support

Over the course of the project, each nonprofit received $25,000 of value for a total value $1.2M delivered.

We need all kinds of volunteers, not just designers and developers. We need people to do setup, teardown, make badges, put in content, project management, etc. If you are interested, let us know.

That is the magical question isn’t it? We admit, this is a big undertaking and is going to take a lot of work. Without getting into all of the details, each nonprofit will be assigned a team of one designer and two developers that will do the work on their site. We have taken the time to come up with several processes that will expedite the design and development work, but rest assured, this project will live up to its name and all sites will be designed and developed within the 48-hour span. If you are curious about the details of how we will accomplish this and want to see it unfold, we would love for you to volunteer to help!
