WE’RE MAKING CHATHAM-KENT BETTER, TOGETHER

Creating strong community connections between businesses, organizations, groups, charities, events, schools, services, and the people who live and work here, can be challenging.

Connecting2CK, in partnership with gigit work, provides a FREE all-in-one platform to build better community connections by generating awareness and traffic for businesses, attendees and volunteers for events, applicants for jobs, funding opportunities for charities, crowd funding for entrepreneurs, and so much more.

FOR BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS, AND GROUPS

Connecting2CK, through gigit work, provides a place to create a custom microsite, manage a transactional storefront, be part of local Chatham-Kent product and service searches, find and manage local job and volunteer applicants, make remunerative work payments, schedule employees and volunteers, manage events, and find better ways to engage with and give back to our local community. In addition, you’ll have access to important data and analytics – both your own and aggregated about Chatham-Kent’s users – to help you make the very best decisions for your organization or business and the community members you serve.

FOR INDIVIDUAL Chatham-Kent COMMUNITY MEMBERS

Connecting2CK powered by gigit work, collects everything our community members need to know about Chatham-Kent into one easy to use and simple to access place. They can find and register for events, search for a specific product or service to purchase, make donations to charities, determine which schools and organizations are right for their family, and find the local businesses they need to shop and buy right here. For local job and volunteer seekers, it’s a job board, application engine, payment portal, and resume generator all built into one.

Help us kickstart our Chatham-Kent community online at Connecting2CK by signing up today!

HERE’S WHAT ONE OF OUR CHATHAM-KENT GIGIT COMMUNITY PARTNERS HAS TO SAY

Steve Pratt, CEO of United Way Chatham-Kent

“In Chatham-Kent we are very lucky to have an active volunteer and donor community. Harnessing their energy and enthusiasm in order to meet our community’s needs has been challenging as we’ve had to use multiple platforms to manage, communicate, and organize volunteers, as well as accept donations.

The gigit platform brings all of these requirements together in one cohesive and easy-to-use online application that simplifies this process. gigit’s customer support, nimble response times, and flexibility have been second-to-none. I would highly recommend the gigit platform to any non-profit organization and to individual volunteers looking for ways they can help to support their local community.”

WE CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO BE PART OF CHATHAM-KENT’S CONNECTING2CK
