Operation Overnight

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.

Watch here in early 2017 for more information about how to apply for the 2017 event.
