We are Open Savannah

As a Code for America Brigade, we're part of a national network of civic-minded volunteers who contribute their skills toward using the web as a platform for local government and community service.

We connect civic technologists with project leaders who have ideas for community solutions.

What is Open Savannah?

We visualize public data and deploy civic apps.

Open Savannah is a civic organization of local developers, designers, data geeks and ordinary residents who volunteer to help Coastal Georgia's public agencies and social enterprises adopt open web technologies. We're a citizen-driven platform for government innovation, and we use open data, design and creative technology as a mode for civic engagement.

We pull together Greater Savannah's best resources to amplify our collective civic impact.

A Code for America Brigade

Open Savannah is only one among dozens of local volunteer groups that are part of the larger Code for America ecosystem.

Catalyzing the Open Data Economy

Accessible public data will enable the creation of local tech startups that solve real world problems.

Open Savannah is for everyone

If you think you won't fit in because you don't consider yourself a 'tech person,' we assure you there are plenty of ways to help out. For what it's worth, half of our Leadership Team doesn't know how to code, either!

Our Supporters

We rely on the help of financial, in-kind supporters and government partners to sustain our efforts tactically and financially. While Code for America subsidizes our operating costs, if Open Savannah is to continue its mission we will soon need the financial support of local sponsors, By supporting Open Savannah with a tax-deductible contribution, your organization will receive recognition at our events and through our many communications channels. Funds go directly toward web hosting, meeting space, and food and beverages for our awesome volunteers.
