Passionate about creating impactful solutions? Good! You're in! 😎

If you’re passionate about leveraging your technology and business skills to help improve your local community, join PayPal’s Opportunity Hack. This energizing hackathon is open to the public and its goal is to connect local non-profits with skilled computer engineers and business-savvy volunteers to help solve some of their most pressing tech problems. Volunteers compete for prizes and are awarded with seeing their solutions put into action by the non-profits.

We exist to create simple technical solutions for non-profit organizations. We utilize volunteers, who are industry professionals or local students to the area in order to provide them valuable experience as they create these solutions for non-profit organizations. We also look to create durable bonds between volunteers, mentors, and their local communities as they work together to create meaningful change to society.

Upcoming Events

2020 Emerging from the pandemic


November 16th to November 24th


We're currently in search of non-profits and NGOs from anywhere in the globe. If you have a technical problem, a manual process, or anything else you think technical folks can solve, please take some time to tell us by filling out this form.


Sponsors are a vital part of Opportunity Hack. With sponsors, we're able to offer more prizes, and more incentives, but at the same time, you're able to associate your company to driving positive change in our communities.


This year, instead of various local sites hosting an in-person hackathon, we're having a global hackathon! 🌎

Past Events

Summer Volunteer Internship 2020

Given that many companies have cancelled their internships, we wanted to help by offering some experience from our set of non-profit problems that we source through Opportunity Hack. This is an entirely online experience, you only need some passion, a computer, and an internet connection.

Nonprofit Organizations

Opportunity Hack strives to match highly-skilled volunteers (i.e. top-notch engineers and other professionals from PayPal, other local companies, and colleges) with nonprofit organizations (NPOs) that need technological solutions for critical challenges. The goals for Opportunity Hack are to solve existing problems for NPOs and to foster a connection with technologists that can extend beyond a single weekend.

Gold Tier Sponsors

Over $15,000 in support and over 200 hours of volunteering/mentoring
