Tech Impact has been helping communities thrive for 20 years by strengthening the nonprofit sector and opening pathways to sustainable careers. Explore this page to learn about how we got here, the impact we’re having today, and how we plan to empower nonprofits and individuals in the future.
Celebrating our community
Our enduring purpose
We believe when one person gets a job with long-term potential, it can have a ripple effect on their whole community. It can inspire others to reach for their goals, impact generational wealth, and improve equity.
We believe changing the complexion of the IT field strengthens businesses by giving them access to more talent. And when candidates see employees, managers, and mentors who look like them, it leads to even greater opportunity and diversity.
We believe when nonprofit leaders gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to make smart technology decisions, their organizations become more effective—and communities thrive.
We believe technology is key to operating efficiency and community impact, and every nonprofit—especially those led by or serving disadvantaged individuals—should have access to affordable technology services.

Tech Impact in 2023 and beyond
From underserved individuals to the nonprofits that support them, Tech Impact promotes positive community-wide change through technology.
Tech Impact’s workforce development programs (ITWorks, CXWorks, and PunchCode) and our workforce intermediary services increase access to education, technical training, and employment opportunities for young adults and dislocated and incumbent workers who face significant economic or social barriers to advancing in their careers. Our programs focus on developing technical and professional soft skills and attaining credentials. Supportive services, including job placement assistance, set participants up for success.
Tech Impact provides nonprofits with the technology they need to create greater social impact in our communities, no matter the size of their budget. We are a managed IT service provider. We also provide project-based consulting and implementation services and a vast library of knowledge resources about nonprofit technology. Most of the nonprofits we serve in turn serve primarily disadvantaged, low-to-moderate income individuals.
Tech Impact’s strategic plan focuses on how our mission produces a positive social impact and builds career pathways and wealth for underrepresented individuals, with an emphasis on embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion in all our activities and programs. We will invest in our operations and programs to expand our social impact and will define and implement key performance measures which will allow us to communicate the full extent of our social impact.
