    Hack Pennsylvania

    For me, Hack Club Bank unlocked organizing hackathons. Even after as a club leader, raising money seemed insurmountable. Bank directly enabled organizing events in my community with event bank accounts & a supportive community. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Bank and their team have created an easily manageable resource to make sure any event is run successfully. We would highly recommend any organization be a part of the Hack Club ecosystem.

    Hack Club Bank removed the barriers to starting fundraising for MAHacks. In mere days, vs months of nonprofit paperwork, Bank enabled my team to invoice sponsors professionally and manage our finances on a clear, up-to-date dashboard.

    DV Hacks

    Hack Club Bank is an essential platform for any hackathon organizer! It made us look both professional and credible in front of our sponsors and it relieved us of legal/financial burdens. Hack Club Bank was there for us every step of the way and for a first-year hackathon, that support was priceless.
