Support AnitaB.org on Giving Tuesday

At AnitaB.org, we are dedicated to supporting women in tech and providing them with the resources they need to thrive in their careers. Our goal is to reach 50/50 intersectional tech equity by 2025 and to close the persistent pay gap that exists for women and underrepresented minorities. In order to reach this vital benchmark, we are looking to launch several new scholarship and mentor programs to help women further their education in technology.

As a nonprofit, we cannot fulfill our mission without your support. Please take the time this Giving Tuesday to #SupportAnitaB365 and help us raise $500,000 this year. Your donations will help us launch our new programs, provide year-round resources to our global community, and further promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the STEM fields. Here are some ways you can help!

Shop for a Worthy Cause

If you shop on AmazonSmile, you can opt to have your purchases support AnitaB.org. Go to http://bit.ly/AnitaBSmile and log into your Amazon account, or create a new account and select “Anita Borg Institute” as your charitable organization. Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. This is a great way to help us both on Giving Tuesday and year-round!

Donor Appreciation Reception

Additionally, we are hosting a reception on Giving Tuesday at our headquarters. During the reception, guests will learn about the progress of our new initiatives and have the opportunity to network with fellow tech diversity leaders, donors, and investors from the San Francisco Bay Area. To participate, you will need to pre-register here.

 

On behalf of all the women we serve, thank you for your support. Together, we can move the needle and change the future of tech.
