The Twilio.org invites you to submit your application for the COVID-19 crisis line grant round.
The impact of COVID-19 on people around the world compounds every day. In these difficult times, millions of people are reaching out to hotlines and helplines for support, counseling, resources, and information. Demand for these vital services has increased dramatically at the same time that their employees and volunteers must transition to virtual services and remote work.
Twilio.org is committing $2 million in grant funding for organizations that operate crisis lines for people impacted by COVID-19. They want to help nonprofits and NGOs build and scale the next generation of crisis support services. If you work on a hotline or helpline that supports people in crisis as a result of COVID-19, they encourage you to apply for a grant.
To qualify for the Twilio.org $500 kickstarter credit and discounted pricing, you must be a 501(c)(3) organization or your domestic equivalent, or a B Corp or social enterprise committed to creating a positive social impact. When you sign up, you will need to submit documentation verifying your status.
