Why support Chi Hack Night?

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 currently operates on a budget of around $20,000. As the frequency of in-person events increase, we expect our budget to grow to $50,000 a year.

For each of our events, we provide:

  • Free food for all in-person attendees
  • Professional video recording & editing of in-person presentations and live streaming of remote presentations to be publicly posted on our YouTube channel
  • $100 honorarium for all presenters
  • Virtual platform (Zoom) for remote attendance
