24 Hours to an Awesome Website

Do you work for or know a non-profit that could use a new website?

During Operation Overnight, Geonetric gives back to Linn County nonprofits who give our community so much. For 24 hours, we work together to strategize, code, design and write websites that help these organizations fulfill their missions.

Our nonprofit partners walk away with more than just an awesome new website during the 24 hours. They also get expert tips on maintaining and marketing their new sites. Training opportunities include social media strategy, search engine optimization and web writing.

Here is what some of our former recipients are saying about Operation Overnight:

"The experience was fantastic! In 24 hours, Geonetric completely redesigned our website, trained our staff how to use the program, and gave us tips for getting our content out to the public. In addition, the Geonetric staff were so full of energy and so much fun to work with." –Laurel Merrick, ASAC, 2014 Operation Overnight participant

"The experience was amazing! Geonetric went above and beyond all of our expectations. The entire crew was excited, motivated and so knowledgeable. We all felt like we made partners and new friends with everyone involved." – Dawn King, Families Helping Families of Iowa, 2015 Operation Overnight participant
