The Giveback Initiative

Austin-area nonprofits are hosting special projects that can be completed by people in Austin affected by the COVID19-related business closings. Your donation will help fund this work!

You can find the list of nonprofit projects here .

Your support will both help these profits tackle some of their most important long-term projects so they can come out of COVID19 stronger than ever.

AND you'll help provide work for people who are currently have limited work hours due to COVID19 closures.

We're incredibly grateful to your generosity in these difficult times. With your support, we can come out of this stronger than ever.

All funds will be distributed directly to the nonprofits who will hire the workers as 1099 employees.

We will select which projects are funded based on available resources, matches with potential workers, and expressed interest in the projects.
