WHAT'S WEEKEND FOR GOOD?
Every year volunteers who are experts in software development, design and other fields are selected to gather for three days to donate their time and expertise to local non-profits.
Code for Good provides workspace, food, coffee, and encouragement.
Our non-profit partners walk away with custom software to further their charitable missions. In turn, those non-profits create meaningful change here in Grand Rapids and around the globe.
Weekend for Good has helped over 110 local non-profits benefit from over $3,000,000 in donated time from local designers and developers.
I want to donate my time!
Can you help my non-profit?

WEekend For Good FAQs
Whether you have been selected or not, you should have received an email from email@example.com explaining what role we have available for you, or if you are on the wait-list. Check your email! If you applied to volunteer but still have not received word of whether you were selected, please reach out using our contact page.
We are limited, in part, by the physical space we have available for the event; putting 10 volunteers in a room meant for 4 makes everyone uncomfortable, and doesn’t do much good for our nonprofit beneficiaries.
We assign volunteers to teams based on availability, space, and how well their skills match the nonprofit’s project needs.
If you weren’t selected, it is not a comment on your skill or ability. We would use every person who volunteers if we could. If you know of an organization willing to donate a space that’s capable of hosting 16+ teams of 6-10 people next year, please reach out!
If you were selected to volunteer, you can show up for registration anytime between 5:00PM and 6:00PM on Friday, November 1, at Start Garden (40 Pearl St NW #200, Grand Rapids, MI 49503).
If did not receive an email assigning you to a role this year, stay home and enjoy your weekend. We love you and thank you for volunteering, but we don’t have enough space or work for all the wonderful people who have applied. Stay tuned for our next workshop event!
