Social + Non-Profit

Social Nonprofit

Usually rich in project ideas and low in budget, non-profit organizations are the first in line when cooperation opportunities rise. Bevor you re-invent the wheel, meet colleagues and join forces, learn how to use pre-configured Drupal distributions and get inspired by ground-breaking social projects built with Drupal.


What makes Drupal great is it’s community. And human interaction is at the core of the Drupal community. Knowledge sharing, helping each other, organizing and volunteering for Drupal related events, raising awareness about what Drupal can do and how it can help you, all of this come natural to us.


So it was in the Drupal philosophy to have a track dedicated to social and non profit ideas. This track is for everyone wanting to hear stories about how Drupal helped make dreams come true.


Suggested topics:

  • Ambitious life stories about helping others
  • Creating a better world with social impact
  • Bringing together the 3 E’s (Economy, Efficiency, Effectiveness)
  • Offering transparency, accountability, full disclosure on operations
  • New technology and horizons in social projects

When you post something on the web, it should belong to you, not a corporation. Too many companies have gone out of business and lost all of their users’ data. By joining the IndieWeb, your content stays yours and in your control.
