Morgan Eseke

Serving others has always been apart of the DNA of Credera. We desire to serve not only our clients and employees, but also our local communities. Our goal is to invest our time, talent and resources into people and programs in ways we believe will have an immediate and meaningful impact.

For this reason, Credera is excited to host OpenGive|Houston on Thursday, October 20th through Saturday, October 22nd at the Houston Food Bank’s Conference Center.

OpenGive is a hackathon focused on building world class software using open source technologies that aims to make a substantial difference in how non-profits execute their mission. OpenGive provides an opportunity for software developers, designers, web strategists and technology enthusiasts to use their project management, creative and technical skills to help Houston based non-profit organizations reach their full potential.

Applications are currently being accepted for additional non-profits. We welcome interested organizations to submit an application.
