What is Operation Overnight?
Are you a non-profit in Linn County, IA and need a new website? Apply for Operation Overnight by July 1, 2013!
Operation Overnight is an event where Geonetric partners with Linn County non-profits and gift services such as a new website and other digital materials. Training on how to maintain the website and how to use social media channels is also provided. During the 24-hour time frame, Geonetric developers, designers and marketing strategists work around the clock to deliver new websites to the selected non-profits without cost.
Last year's event began on November 8, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. and concluded November 9, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. The four non-profit organizations were selected from a pool of applications. Qualified non-profits had to be a 501(c) organization based in Cedar Rapids, IA. Applicants were asked to outline how receiving a new website and marketing materials would help them accomplish their organization’s mission to improve the Cedar Rapids community.
