Here's What We're Doing

For 24 hours, we're donating our time and expertise to help a local charity further their goals. By doing what we do best we can help charities be better at what they do best.

We believe that top talent in design and development shouldn't benefit only those that can afford it. We want to bring important causes into a broader public view and, through our expertise, strengthen the social good sector by making organizations more efficient and effective.

We're eager to give back and help increase the capacity for good social organizations to do more social good.

Submitting your charity for this event means you'll work directly with the Filament team. We've been solving problems and creating efficiency for countless organizations since the dot-matrix printer was a thing.
