You may know IBM as a large and established technology company that helps businesses achieve success, providing clients with the latest computer hardware, software and related strategies. While it is a global giant, IBM also tangibly helps local communities where it does business, including greater Washington, D.C.
Through the IBM On Demand Community, the company offers a deep reservoir of pro bono talent that nonprofit organizations and schools can tap into to support local programs. The "Community" is staffed by Greater Washington IBM employees and retirees who are interested in putting their skills to work and they are supported by a powerful set of resources: the IBM On Demand Community forum where IBM employees and retirees share strategies with colleagues for implementing community-related initiatives.
The On Demand Community also enables schools and nonprofits to propose projects to potential IBM volunteers browsing the site. IBMers come prepared, as the site provides dozens of "activity kits" – case studies that describe the strategies and tactics for successful initiatives involving everything from disaster planning to science and math education.
Launched in 2003, IBM's On Demand Community program supports over 270,000 volunteers worldwide who have provided over 18 million hours of volunteer work.
Find out more, including eligibility requirements for posting volunteer opportunities, or propose and register your organization's skills-based activity.
Kudos to IBM for providing a great resource for the Fairfax community!
