History of Organizers' Collaborative
OC was founded in 1999 because we felt that there were few resources available to assist smaller community organizations with technology. Small nonprofits we had worked with had chronic difficulties using technology, even though the computer hardware had become extremely affordable.
Working with others interested in addressing this problem, Rich Cowan convened the founding meetings of Organizers' Collaborative (OC) in 1999. In July of 2000, Organizers' Collaborative gained 501(c)(3) status. Operating initially as a volunteer-based organization with only part-time staffing, OC has expanded into a nationally recognized technology resource that now reaches thousands of non-profits and community groups.
OC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that identifies and develops low-cost, replicable technology, software, and trainings that meets the organizing, outreach, and fundraising needs of small nonprofits. OC is comprised of community organizers and technology consultants dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations and community groups integrate technology into their work.
