When we were first getting into technology in the Philippines, we were entranced by big tech and ideals that have grown increasingly complicit with the injustices happening around the world. As we reflect and move towards tech for good, we call on you to join us in whatever way you are able to to rise up—if you are able to contribute financially, please do so, or use your skills to help us amplify more stories and messages that need to be told.
We will be posting updates of our donations and stories on our Facebook page and Twitter.
We will match up to $500 or PHP 25,000 of donations to the following funds. If you donate PHP500, we will also donate PHP500.

Hustisya! (United for Justice) is a national organization of victims of different forms of political repression. It is also an association of relatives, friends of victims of political killings or extrajudicial killings.
It was established at the height of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo regime's political repression. However, the systematic violent, repressive and deceitful state continue to condone various forms of human rights abuses. The culture of impunity remains unabated. For this, Hustisya remains as an organization of victims, and relatives of the victims of human rights violations under any repressive government.

Brooklyn Community Bail Fund secures the freedom of New Yorkers who would otherwise be detained pretrial due to their poverty alone.

A coalition to demand that Minneapolis divest from policing and invest in long-term alternatives.
Reclaim the Block began in 2018 and organizes Minneapolis community and city council members to move money from the police department into other areas of the city’s budget that truly promote community health and safety. We believe health, safety and resiliency exist without police of any kind. We organize around policies that strengthen community-led safety initiatives and reduce reliance on police departments. We do not believe that increased regulation of or public engagement with the police will lead to safer communities, as community testimony and documented police conduct suggest otherwise.
Black Visions Collective (BLVC) believes in a future where all Black people have autonomy, safety is community-led, and we are in right relationship within our ecosystems.
Since 2017, Black Visions Collective, has been putting into practice the lessons learned from organizations before us in order to shape a political home for Black people across Minnesota. We aim to center our work in healing and transformative justice principles, intentionally develop our organizations core “DNA” to ensure sustainability, and develop Minnesota’s emerging Black leadership to lead powerful campaigns. By building movements from the ground up with an integrated model, we are creating the conditions for long term success and transformation.

Developh is exploring ways to tell the stories and amplify the lives and work of political activists and prisoners in the Philippines. We are a nation that has stigmatized their organizing work, despite it being the backbone of our countless rights and liberties. If you are a student and would like to join us in writing, curating, and designing ways to effectively and impactfully communicate this, please reach out to us. email@example.com
Developh is a Philippine-based, student-run organization working towards bridging the innovation gap. In the past year, we were thankfully able to get a good amount of financial support for our programming and are able to redirect some funds from our organization and our leaders' personal earnings to these pressing, urgent, global causes that comprise our initial $500.
If you are a tech organization that would like to coordinate and explore how we can best work towards collective action, we would love to talk with you. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know of any organizations that we can support or collaborate with, please reach out to us.
