Nominations are open for the Tech4Good Awards 2015, an annual showcase for the people who use digital technology to make the world a better place.
Entries are open from 4th March until 8th May and anyone can nominate themselves or someone else in any one of seven categories, which are: Accessibility Award, BT Ingenious Award, Community Impact Award, Digital Health Award, Digital Skills Award, IT Volunteer of the Year Award and Young People’s Award.
Judges include business people, charities, academics and journalists and others with specialist knowledge of how tech is used for social good.
AbilityNet CEO, Nigel Lewis said: “This is the fifth year of these unique Awards, which recognize people from all walks of life who are using the amazing power of technology to help other people. I am always staggered by the commitment, innovation and ingenuity shown by the people who enter the Awards and it is fantastic to be helping to shine a light on their incredible achievements.”
Entry is free and open to any business, charity, individual or public body with a base in the UK.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony in July.
Charities believe corporate fundraising is a key growth area. But recent research by the IoF has revealed that just 7% of charities with a corporate fundraising programme feel that it is “fully developed”. With this in mind, Virgin Money Giving is hosting a series of free live events between 5th and 7th October to help charities grow their corporate fundraising.
