Non-profit track

This year, WordCamp London will have a Saturday track focused on not-for-profit organisations using WordPress.

This  track is open to anyone working in the third sector, NGOs, charities, social enterprises, voluntary organisations, neighbourhood or community groups, hyper-local and micro-enterprise websites. It is being run in association with London Metropolitan University who have a strong record of research and course provision in social entrepreneurship, community and international development – as well as in computer science and web development.

We’re looking for presentations focused on not-for-profit organisations’ use of WordPress. If you work for a charity or build websites for third-sector organisations we’d love you to share your knowledge and experience with the WordCamp audience.

Key questions that we hope to address include:

  • How to deliver sustainable web strategies for not-for-profit organisations
  • Using WordPress to create platforms for hyper-local and community business models
  • How NGOs are using WordPress as part of their approach to information management
  • Raising your social enterprise’s profile with a blog 
  • Using WordPress in a particular segment of the not-for-profit sector – e.g. in arts organisations
  • The benefits and costs for not-for-profit organisations using open source software
  • How our campaign went from no website at all to a web presence
  • A case study on how my not-for-profit organisation uses WordPress

To apply

Complete the WordCamp London application form and select “not-for-profit” on the application form question “Who is your intended audience?”

  1. Hello!

    I’ve been working on a talk that explains how to improve an organization’s efficiency using free tools on the internet, specifically the P2 (or O2!) Theme, Post-by-Email, and IFTTT (If This Then That).

    I don’t currently work with or for nonprofits, but I think that this talk could be really applicable to folks in that realm, especially considering smaller nonprofits who may lack the IT budget or simply overall budget for more expensive software solutions.

    Does this sound like something that might be a good fit for the Nonprofit track? Feel free to reply via email with any questions or feedback.

    Thanks,
    SAO
