#GivingTuesdayNow: Help Students Survive the COVID-19 Pandemic

Today, AnitaB.org is proud to participate in #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving and unity created as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. We are immediately shifting focus of our Tech Journey Scholarship Fund to provide emergency assistance to women whose technical education journeys have been disrupted by COVID-19.

Aspiring technologists need help NOW. With the cancellation of summer internships and full-time job opportunities, along with uncertainty around financial aid, work study, campus meals and housing, technical women are facing unprecedented obstacles in achieving their educational and career goals. AnitaB.org remains committed to supporting their persistence by providing small emergency grants that will help them pay rent, acquire food, address Internet connectivity issues, and so much more.

We can make an incredible impact with your support. Donate now on the AnitaB.org donation page and help us raise $500,000 to support over 750 aspiring tech women impacted by COVID-19. Be sure to include “Tech Journey Scholarship” in the designation field when submitting your donation. Note that less than 10% of the donation is applied to administrative overhead and all gifts are tax deductible.
