Know the Baltimore GiveCamp Process

At BGC we build a volunteer team around your projects. Your team is made up of a Project Manager, Business Analyst, Technical Team Leader, and any number of developers needed to complete your project in a weekend.

Follow the CAMP rules - Commitment, Apply, Manage, Participate

Commitment - We expect a commitment from you to be a part of the events. It is highly important that you, or a representative from your organization be present to guide the team as needed. Everyone on your team is volunteering their time and effort for you, it is the least you can do.

Apply - Get your application in for Baltimore GiveCamp early. We only have space for a limited number of nonprofit projects and getting your name on the list early is important for consideration into BGC.

Manage - Keep in the loop all the time with your team. The more you apply yourself, the better the results. Make sure the project is how you want it and is something that you will be able to handle when you are done.

Participate - Be at the events and through the BGC weekend. Make as much time available as possible to show your team that they are appreciated and that you are just as important in the process as they are.

What To Know Before You Register

  1. Are you available? - It is imperative that you or a representative are going to be available for the events. Do not plan to be a part of BGC this year if you cannot attend.
  2. Determine the scope of your needs - Do you feel your project is able to be done in a weekend, or you feel that it can either be started and handed over or carried over to other GiveCamp events?
  3. Are you a qualified nonprofit organization? - We will verify your status in order to be a part of BGC.
  4. Do you have buy-in from your organization? - If you are part of a larger organization, you might need to make sure that the organization would like to participate in a GiveCamp. As well, you should have buy-in from the rest of your organization that what you are registering to do is something that is needed.
