Since 2009, we’ve donated funds on behalf of each of our moderators to different charities, and this year is no different. It is our pleasure to announce that the donations have been made and those funds are now on their way to impact the world.
In 2020, the global COVID-19 pandemic affected us all. Because of this, we wanted to include some charities that provide resources, medical care, and awareness to the populations that need it most. We also kept some of the charities we’ve given to in the past that help to advance literacy in technology.
Here is how we are allocating our donations based on 542 moderators’ votes:
$18,960 USD Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières):
Doctors Without Borders is an independent, global movement providing medical aid where it's needed.
$11,960 USD Electronic Frontier Foundation
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization defending digital privacy, free speech, and innovation.
$8,560 USD Girls Who Code
Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization which aims to support and increase the number of women in computer science by equipping young women with the necessary computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.
$8,160 USD International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives.
$6,560 USD UNICEF
The United Nations Children’s Fund provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries
TOTAL: $54,200 USD
Thank you to our 542 moderators for their passion, time, and leadership in the communities that make up our network. Let’s keep moving forward and let’s make this a year to remember!
