This program will further the company’s mission to create economic opportunities so people have better lives. It aims to build a future of inclusive learning and opportunity by serving those at risk of being left behind by the Fourth Industrial Revolution as well as supporting other nonprofits and its own employees in volunteering.
The Upwork Foundation Initiative includes a donor-advised fund created through the Tides Foundation. Proceeds from an equity contribution will be given to select organizations through grants to financially support the initiative’s goals. In addition to the creation of The Upwork Foundation Initiative, Upwork has joined Pledge 1%, a global movement that encourages and empowers all companies to have a positive social impact through their business.
