Public Interest Organizations

We understand that organizations' technology needs are comprehensive. We have experience working with public interest organizations on a variety of digital projects ranging from website builds to digital communications strategies. However complex or straightforward your needs may be, we are here to help you develop a plan of action.

In our process, we won’t force you to select into categories that may not fully capture the depth or breadth of your situation. Our goal is to meet you where you are: what your organization is doing, why your work matters, the strategic vision to achieving impact, and what stands in your way. You’re the expert in your work, and we’ll work together to identify opportunities for technology to support your organizational priorities.

Once we've scoped out a project together, we’ll bring in a team of multidisciplinary professionals to tackle your needs.

How It Works


(4-6 Weeks)

1. Online Application
2. Phone Screening
3. In-person Planning Meeting

Our three-step discovery process allows us to work alongside you to determine your organization’s needs and goals.

We’ll use this information to recruit the right team of digital professionals to ensure the program produces a high impact, high quality deliverable.

Time Commitment
1 hour/week

Program Execution

(6-8 Weeks)

After we’ve worked with you to identify the project, you’ll meet your Product/Project Manager who will be your main point of contact. They will keep communication channels open, ensure priorities stay aligned, and keep the team on track. This makes the project less stressful and time consuming for you.

You’ll also meet with the entire team to answer any outstanding questions and continue to communicate with the team throughout.

Time Commitment
2-3 hours/week


(2 Weeks)

We’ll evaluate both the impact of the specific project executed based on agreed-upon metrics, as well as the overall Delta.NYC experience. All nonprofit partners are expected to participate in exit interviews and a 3-month post-project check-in.

We will survey and interview nonprofit partners, program participants and PMs to understand where we need to improve. Changes will be applied to the following iteration of the program and findings will be shared with the growing pro bono tech community.
