A trillion-dollar industry, the US non-profit sector is one of the world’s largest economies. Social justice organizations have joined this world, often blunting political goals to satisfy government and foundation mandates. The tech industry has long been a part of the nonprofit industrial complex, with organizations (Mozilla Foundation, Girls Who Code, Tech Solidarity, Khan Academy), established philanthropic foundations (the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, the Bezos Family Foundation), and a new wave of young philanthropists (Larry Page and Maciej Cegłowski). This is a learning club for tech workers, non-profit workers, volunteers, activists, organizers, and anyone in between. Together we will discuss and turn a critical eye toward the nonprofit industrial complex, and other institutions that play a role in both helping and perhaps harming the community.
