About Website Weekend

Website Weekend is a weekend-long hackathon that brings together teams of web professionals to build pro bono websites for nonprofit organizations.

Sponsors make it all happen by providing web hosting and domain services as well as valuable tools that the teams can use. Sponsors also provide the space, and keep the teams going with food and snacks all weekend long.

Website Weekend was created by Natalie MacLees of Purple Pen Productions in 2013. The first Website Weekend was held in Los Angeles in October 2013 and 53 volunteers came together to build websites for 7 different nonprofit organizations.
