CapTech Joins Apparo’s Volunteer Team to Help the Lutzie 43 Foundation

Phillip Lutzenkirchen, an Auburn University football player (#43), caught the game-winning touchdown in the 2010 Iron Bowl. The Lutzie 43 Foundation was established in memory of him after tragically losing his life in a drunk driving accident at the age of 23 in 2014. The foundation’s objective is to inspire people to make better decisions as drivers and friends, using Phillip’s life and legacy to inspire change.

The Lutzie 43 Foundation, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Transportation, provides Safe Driving Summits for students to end distracted and impaired driving in the state of Georgia. Wanting to expand its reach, The Lutzie 43 Foundation turned to Apparo, a nonprofit connecting other nonprofits to technology expertise and resources, for community partnership assistance.

Apparo and CapTech have shared an incredible decade-long relationship, and it was through Apparo that CapTech was introduced to The Lutzie 43 Foundation. Through Apparo’s Community Interest Projects (CIP) program, CapTechers come together to join volunteer teams assisting nonprofits in need of technology solutions to help them overcome their process and technology challenges.

In the fall of 2023, CapTechers James Snavely, Brent Karickhoff, and Scott Kuhlke joined a volunteer team to help the Lutzie 43 Foundation improve their business processes to be able to replicate the number of their summits and expand their work into more cities and states.

"It was a great experience working with the team to identify new ways to improve Lutzie 43’s business process. The Safe Driving Summits are making a major impact on teens driving decisions and I look forward to collaborating with the Lutzie 43 team in the future," said James Snavely, CapTech Specialist.
