Auth0, the identity platform for application teams, today announced the launch of Auth0.org, a social impact program committed to secure, inclusive access for all. Representing an extension of the company’s goal of ‘Secure Access for Everyone’ (SAFE), Auth0.org consists of various philanthropic initiatives for nonprofit organizations and social enterprises including secure access to technology and equal access to education.
As part of the launch, the company also announced that it has joined the Pledge 1% movement, and has committed to giving 1% of it’s equity to nonprofits over the next 10 years to help pursue philanthropic initiatives, with initial contributions from co-founders Eugenio Pace (CEO) and Matias Woloski (CTO).
‘Secure Access for Everyone’ reflects the organization’s strong belief that inclusivity and accessibility are core tenets to prosperity and progress, unlocking human potential, and elevating the human experience. The organization will rely on the company’s global network of more than 9,000 customers and more than 700 employees, along with it’s resources, to expand upon existing giving initiatives and be a force for good. By leveraging the reach, support, and products, Auth0.org will be able to facilitate secure, inclusive access to technology, that aligns with its goal of connecting and improving the lives of people worldwide, regardless of location, race, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, or religion.
The website is engaging with world-changing agents and social enterprises that advance its strong belief in inclusivity and accessibility to make lasting change. To ensure it’s success in executing that mission, Tides Foundation will serve as its philanthropic partner and charitable home. Since 1976 Tides Foundation has become the leading philanthropic services provider for corporate social impact as well as the nation’s largest fiscal sponsor working towards a world of shared prosperity and social justice across sectors.
Auth0.org will focus on three primary areas:
Auth0 for Nonprofits: This area will provide eligible nonprofit organisations and social enterprises with greater accessibility to Auth0’s leading identity management solution. This project is an extension of existing offerings for nonprofit organizations, including the company’s efforts to provide Startup Relief for qualifying companies most affected by COVID-19.
SAFE Fund: A donor-advised fund of Tides Foundation, this initiative will make grants to various nonprofit organizations with a similar focus on fighting for secure, inclusive access for all. The company’s partnership with Pledge 1% underscores its goal of providing funding for qualifying nonprofit organizations for the next 10 years.
Employee Giving: To grow the ongoing philanthropic interests of Auth0’s employees, the initiative will provide donation matching opportunities, encourage volunteering and community outreach efforts, and organise employee events and campaigns.
