Webinar:
What Open Source Is and How Your Nonprofit Can Benefit

Tuesday, October 30
11 AM Pacific Time

Open source software allows anyone to freely read, study, modify and redistribute a software’s source code with little restriction other than that free access is maintained. For a nonprofit, open source represents a fantastic opportunity to tap into some of the best technology out there, to engage with entirely new allies, and to reduce long-term technology costs for an organization.

Join the Case Foundation’s VP of Interactive Strategies, John Jones, for a webinar where he will cover the following topics:

  • Discuss what open source is
  • How some nonprofits have been able to employ it to advance their work
  • How you may apply those lessons to your own organization
In addition, John will share some of the open source work the Case Foundation has been leading, which will include a demo of an open source project the Case Foundation has released.
