The tech economy in the Bay Area has generated a significant amount of wealth and opportunity for some, while displacing and destabilizing many others. In the Bay Area, the 21st century’s rising tide has not lifted all boats. We know that many members of the tech community want to fix this dynamic, and make it possible for a tech-driven economy to create broad-based opportunity. One of the ways we can get there is through our own personal philanthropy. So, we’re starting a giving circle to help members of our community develop their philanthropic muscle and learn more about the great organizations working on the front lines of the Bay Area’s most pressing issues.

A giving circle is a community of like-minded philanthropists who pool their funds in order to increase their collective impact. Our giving circle will support organizations in the Bay Area that do work that aligns with TechEquity’s focus areas in housing and workforce & labor, as well as groups that work on closing the inequality gap.

The goal for the TechEquity Giving Circle is to:

-Support causes that help create a more inclusive and equitable Bay Area and connect tech workers to the organizations doing the best work in these areas.

-Encourage a culture of philanthropy among tech workers – those who have benefited financially from the tech economy – to give boldly to their community.

-Help members of the TechEquity community better understand the social issues most urgently affecting the Bay Area.
