Calling public benefit organizations: How can we help you?

Mozilla Service Week 1

Is your non-profit or community organization in need of technology help? Do you need help with your website, setting up WiFi at your office, or learning how to use Twitter? If so, Mozilla would love to hear from you!

This September, the Mozilla community is helping fellow public benefit organizations. During Mozilla Service Week (Sept 14-21), people all over the world will conduct public acts of technology-related service. Our community is looking for volunteer opportunities. By utilizing our community’s talents for writing, designing, programming, developing, and all-around technical know-how, we believe we can make the Web — and the world — a better place for everyone. Here are just a few ideas of how we can help:

  • Help build or upgrade a website.
  • Teach you how social networks and Twitter can help you find new members and supporters.
  • Set up a wireless network at your office or meeting place.
  • Translate your offering into another language.
  • Show you how to use VoIP (Internet telephony) to help reduce your costs.

There are countless ways technology could help improve the great work you do, and the Mozilla community wants to help make that difference.

How can your non-profit or community group get help?

We are working with the volunteer organization Idealist, so if you already have a need in mind, you can register your organization at Idealist and describe the technical help you are looking for. Mozilla’s volunteers are searching Idealist and will locate your organization.

You can also find out more on how to list your needs and find volunteers on the Mozilla Service Week website. Furthermore, if you need additional guidance you can contact us.

Mozilla Service Week Volunteers

You can already start helping by contacting and checking in with organizations. Please talk them through what they need to do, and even help them post.

The Mozilla community has a history of changing the the Web in all kinds of amazing ways.

Join us for Mozilla Service Week, as we help you change the world.
