Work & Co Fund
A $1MM investment in nonprofits advancing the Black community.
About the Fund
Businesses have an important role to play in breaking down the structures that enable systemic racism. Work & Co is focused on taking action in various ways, but as a technology company, we have a unique ability to build digital products to help reset the equation and enable racial justice.
Through the Work & Co Fund — which in the past has supported Planned Parenthood and also built tools to help with the Covid-19 crisis — we are committing $1 million in design, strategy and development resources to Black nonprofits and startups.
Specifically: we are donating resources to organizations and startups dedicated to supporting the Black community in three areas:
- Economic empowerment
- Voter rights and access
- Criminal justice reform
Are you a match? If so, we want to hear from you to potentially provide pro-bono design, product strategy and development resources. Fill out the form below, and we will contact you as soon as possible if your organization is a match with our stated focus areas and resources. For any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
