Applications are now closed
The application portal is now closed. We fully expended the pilot funds, awarding $2500 stipends to 45 workers in the tech industry over a period of 12 weeks. We’re currently raising funds for a second round of stipends to workers and plan to re-open the portal soon. 100% of all online donations will go directly to workers. If you’re able, donate $50, $100, or $1,000 to the fund today so we can re-open our application portal and continue helping workers fight for better jobs and workplaces!
