Zuora.org Community Impact Grants Fund COVID-19 Relief and Recovery

gbafNews28

Zuora, Inc. (NYSE: ZUO), the leading cloud-based subscription management platform provider, today announced that the Zuora Impact Fund, through Zuora.org, has selected its first Community Impact Grant recipients. The Community Impact Grant program underscores Zuoras efforts to ensure the Subscription Economy benefits everyone through its employee time, equity, and product, to contribute to creating more inclusive local economies.

In its first ever grant cycle, launched in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., Zuora.org sought to fund organizations addressing the needs of underserved individuals and those breaking down barriers to economic participation.

Philanthropic organizations are not only seeing a steep increase in the numbers of individuals needing their support through emergency relief such as food, shelter, and individual microgrants, but they are also needing to shift their business models to effectively reach their constituents through virtual deployment or social-distanced delivery methods, said Rory Ihlamur, Director of Zuora.org. To help alleviate some of that pressure we decided to issue unrestricted funding so that organizations can use the grant money for their highest priorities and pivot to best serve their communities.

The recipients of Zuora.org’s $250,000 in impact grants represent a global collection of organizations demonstrating their dedication and passion in providing unwavering support to those most negatively affected by COVID-19. Not only are they supplying basic human needs such as food and shelter but they are also committed to helping their constituents find stability and economic mobility in very uncertain times.

As one of the first organizations in this field, Hack the Hood has a commitment to implementing a project-based, rigorous curriculum that is relevant to the communities they serve.
  • Hospitality Helps: Hospitality Helps/Taste Catering (in partnership with Young Community Developers, Inc.) is producing and delivering delicious, fresh, and ready-to-eat family meals to San Francisco’s District 10 (Hunters Point/Bay View), a community disproportionately affected by COVID-19, living in the food desert of San Francisco and cut off from school-based nutrition.

  • Open Heart Kitchen of Livermore: Open Heart Kitchen serves prepared, nutritious meals free of charge to the hungry people of the Tri-Valley, California.

  • Tri-Valley Haven for Women: Tri-Valley Haven creates homes safe from abuse, contributes to a more peaceful society one person, one family, one community at a time. Together, they build a world without violence.

In an effort to further their philanthropic work, Zuora re-committed another $1,000,000 in FY21 to provide funding to organizations that are building more equitable educational structures, providing innovative workforce development opportunities, and those that support under-represented entrepreneurs. The goal is to create more equitable prosperity for individuals and communities that have been underrepresented. The companys philanthropic arm, Zuora.org, will use the funds to fuel two initiatives: the Zuora Impact Fund which invests in mission-aligned nonprofits and employee-driven volunteer and fundraising activation.

As a result of its continued efforts to drive inclusivity through philanthropic efforts, Zuora was recently named a San Francisco Business Times Top 100 Philanthropist.
