Platform launches to match tech volunteers to charity projects

hashtagcharity, an international volunteering initiative to ‘SmartMatch’ those with technical skills to charity IT projects, launched on 9th April. At time of writing, there are several UK based projects amongst a mainly American list but geographic coverage is likely to change over time – hashtagcharity itself is based in Hungary.

The website uses a potential volunteer’s skill set and background drawn from their LinkedIn profile to create a ranking for a particular charity project relative to others. hastagcharity front page, or see the ‘How does it work’ page.

VoluntaryNews trailed the new platform back in January.
