Community Grants Program
Born from TaskRabbit's mission to make everyday life easier, TaskRabbit for Good (TR4G) helps our neighbors in need find work and a place to call home. We believe in opening doors and providing opportunities to lift people up when they need a hand.
Our 2019 inaugural grant program supports local organizations that help people earn a meaningful living and make our communities a better place to live.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE FALL 2019 GRANT CYCLE
In fall 2019, TR4G will award up to three (3) grants to small, grassroots nonprofits aligned with our mission. Each grant is a combination of USD $8,000 in cash and USD $2,000 in TaskRabbit credits, which the organization can use to hire Taskers via our platform.
TaskRabbit will highlight the three (3) selected grant recipients on its website and social channels, showcasing the important work made possible by the grant.
Grants are funded through profits from donation drop-off tasks on the TaskRabbit platform and contributions from TaskRabbit employees. For more information on TaskRabbit’s services and what your organization can get done with TaskRabbit credits, please visit About TaskRabbit and TaskRabbit Services.
We’re looking for small, grassroots organizations that do incredible work in our communities around workforce development and/or creating a place to call home, have inspiring stories to tell, and will use the grant to make an impact on the lives of neighbors in need.
