Who it's for

While Open Outreach could be used by a wide range of groups, we have developed the project with a particular kind of grassroots group in mind. It is for this type of nonprofit or group that Open Outreach will be most beneficial and who is our target audience.

  • Mission-focused social and environmental groups
  • No dedicated technical staff
  • Small—ten or fewer staff or core volunteers
  • Small technical budgets—$100 - $1,000 per year
  • Engaging a membership or constituency through activities like events
  • Multiple members or staff involved in engaging their community (e.g., not just a single person posting content)
  • Self-reliant—wants direct control of its tools rather than over-reliance on outside professionals
  • Organizational culture that resonates with community open source values of collaboration
