Our grant recipients are selected by our members, founders from successful tech companies like Twilio, Omada, NeuMoDx, and others, committed to practicing philanthropy. Though our members have interests across several areas of impact (education, environment, human rights, etc) we require diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of our grant recipients.
Our grant making process is designed to provide the best possible experience for nonprofits and our members. Our grants are unrestricted, upfront grants, so that you can spend the money on what is best for your organization.
