Operation Overnight

2017 Operation Overnight Organizations

Congratulations to the four nonprofits who will receive new websites during our Operation Overnight event in October 2017!

Learn about the 2017 nonprofit organizations in our press release.

24 Hours to an Awesome Website

Know a Linn county nonprofit that could use a new web presence?

Each year, Geonetric gives back to local nonprofits that give so much to our community. We work with you to strategize, code, design, write and launch new websites. A website that helps you fulfill your charitable mission.

After your Operation Overnight experience, you walk away with an awesome new website, and a toolbox of expert tips on how to maintain and market your new site. From social media strategy, to search engine optimization, to web writing, you’ll have all you need to manage your new online presence.

The application process for 2018 will open in July.

Eligibility Requirements

We wish we could help every nonprofit. However, we have a few requirements. To be eligible for consideration, you must:

  • Be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization based in Linn County, Iowa.
  • Operate to fulfill a mission that is not religiously or politically based.
  • Have at least one representative attend pre-event meetings, and at least one decision maker attend a significant portion of the event.
  • Provide source materials and brand guidelines prior to the event.
  • Have at least one representative available to talk with the media.

What makes our ideal candidate? First, you need the kind of online help we can achieve within 24 hours – we work best with medium-sized websites. Second, you reach a large audience within our community – we want to affect the lives of as many people as possible. And finally, you’re good at collaborating, making quick decisions, and having fun with total strangers. (But don’t worry, we’ll all be best friends before the site launches!)

Check Out the 2016 Sites

In 2016, five Linn County nonprofits walked away with striking new websites and one received a host of digital marketing services. Check them out.
