Software Architect

Volunteer Software Architect

About DigLit

Technology doesn't work for nonprofits. Technology requires access to capital that nonprofits do not have access to. In addition to this, many nonprofits have budgets that simply do not allow for technology upkeep.

DigLit is a unique solution to this problem. Our organization acts as the engineering branch of every nonprofit who seeks our help, regardless of their size. We build custom software solutions to strengthen nonprofits, but where other organizations release themselves of responsibility once the technology is built, we deploy and maintain the technology for its expected lifespan.
