Tech to the Rescue helps a million people by connecting tech to non-profit companies
Over 250 tech companies and 300 non-profit organisations are now a part of the platform across 12 countries.
Tech to the Rescue is a foundation that pairs technology companies with non-profit organisations.
It has estimated that its projects delivered to-date have positively impacted more than a million people in 12 countries.
The three years of funding will enable the foundation to increase its community of technology companies that are committed to offering at least one pro-bono project per year, Tech to the Rescue said in its release.
Tech to Rescue was founded in March 2020, as a union of 10 Central European technology companies. It has accumulated over 250 technology companies and more than 300 non-profit organisations have joined the platform to implement technology solutions to ‘solve the world’s most pressing and environmental problems.’
Tech to the Rescue says that the thee-year funding will enable it to pursue its plan to bring 2,000 technology companies together with non-profit organisations, and help it reach its goal of impacting millions more people by 2025.
“We are delighted with the successful funding round, enabling us to continue driving positive systemic change in the IT industry for the next 3-years. We are facilitating the purpose driven need that employees are wanting by connecting IT companies with non-profit organisations,” said Jacek Siadkowski, co-founder and Managing Director of Tech to the Rescue.
“Over the next three-years we plan to establish purpose driven pro-bonos as a standard sustainability and employee engagement practice along with connecting 2,000 technology companies together with non-profit organisations.”
Over the last two years, organisations Tech to the Rescue has paired include: The People and Medicine Foundation with Skryise Tech to create an application that supports patients with chronic diseases re-arrange their lives; The Rainbow Index of Church in Europe (RICE) with Tooploox to create an interactive report on LGBT Christians in Europe; and Wind Aid Institute with Vazco to attract volunteers to build wind turbines, helping electrify 20 new communities in rural Peru.
