Twilio.org $150,000 Matching Grant

We have an awesome opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of gender nonconforming and queer women and we need your help today!

Twilio.org has challenged this community to raise $100,000 in the next 30 days which they will match with a grant of $150,000 to support the Edie Windsor Coding Scholarship.

 We need your help today in order to succeed. Can we count on you to step up and contribute $25, $50, $100 or even $1,000 today? We have an incredible community of over 25,000 queer women and allies – and we know you know how to step up to support our leaders and future leaders.

We have the power to shape our world. Please use your dollars to create the world we want to live in.
