What is Chi Hack Night?

Chi Hack Night is a free, weekly event in Chicago to build, share and learn about civic tech. Our community is at the center of Chicago’s civic technology ecosystem.

We are the place in Chicago where civic tech partnership and innovation happens, resulting in new non-profits like mRelief, citizen advocacy campaigns like My Building Doesn’t Recycle, and government innovation like the City of Chicago’s Clear Water Project.

Chi Hack Night will always be free and accessible to all but we need your help to keep it going!

What we spend the money on

Chi Hack Night operates on a budget of about $50,000 a year.

For each of our 50 events each year, we provide:

  • Free food for all attendees (between 100 - 150 people)
  • A professionally recorded and edited video of that night’s presentation posted on our public YouTube channel

Chi Hack Night NFP is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
