About Us

In January 2019, Nate Beckman founded Columbus Digital Service. A believer in skills-based volunteering, he drew inspiration from organizations like US Digital Service and Columbus' Give Back Hack. Nate also drew from his own time spent volunteering and from his experience as a leader in the successful #SaveTheCrew movement. 


Our mission is to serve people in need in Columbus by connecting technologists to software projects. We intend that these projects result in one or more of the following outcomes:

  • Increase funds donated to nonprofits‚Äč

  • Maintain funds currently allocated to nonprofits

  • Improve efficiency of processes at nonprofits

  • Create new products or services that benefit the people of Columbus
