Empowering Non-Profits with AI Hackathon

Date: 2/1/2024 (planning) and 2/5/24 (build)

Location: Charles L. Brown Science & Engineering Library, McCormick Road, Charlottesville, VA, USA

The UVA Health Sciences Library, Center for Civic Innovation, and Girls on the Run would like to invite you to a unique hackathon with a precise goal:


  • Learn more about Girls on the Run and the capacity issues that face small non-profits seeking to raise money.
  • Brainstorm and develop AI-powered solutions to facilitate grant discovery and writing.

    Who is this for:
  • Anyone interested in small non-profits, grantwriting, and emerging technologies.
  • The second event on 2/5 will be a technical "hackathon" where we build out solutions discussed during the first event.


  • Context of the problem and organization
  • Opportunity for a human-centered technology solution
  • Develop wireframes to support build day on 2/5.

This registration is for our 2/1 event where we'll lay out the problem and work toward a wireframe. No specific technical expertise is required. The 2/5 event will be held downtown and will be strictly for building out the solutions. You do not need to attend both sessions, the second session will be more technical.
