TaskRabbit for Good (TR4G) is looking for small, grassroots nonprofits that do incredible work in communities, have inspiring stories to tell and can use the grant to make a significant impact. They give grants and TaskRabbit credits to community nonprofits that help people get back on their feet, with work opportunities and shelter.
TaskRabbit for Good (TR4G) is TaskRabbit’s social good initiative, led by a passionate team representing a cross-section of internal departments – because they all have a role to play. Launched in 2018, TR4G leverages business, technology and people as a force for good in the communities.
TaskRabbit is a tech platform that conveniently connects people with independent contractors (they call them Taskers), to help with everyday tasks including deliveries, furniture assembly, moving help and much more. TaskRabbit operates in 100+ cities in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and France and is continually expanding.
In fall 2020, TaskRabbit will award five (5) community grants, each of USD $8,000 (or local currency equivalent) in cash and USD $2,000 (or local currency equivalent) in TaskRabbit credit.
All organizations that meet the following criteria are welcome to apply:
For this inaugural grant cycle, they’re looking for community organizations located and delivering direct services in cities where TaskRabbit operates in the United States or the United Kingdom.
