About Twilio.org

Partner with a company that’s here to amplify the good

Twilio.org, the social impact arm of Twilio, helps social impact organizations expand their reach and scale their missions.

Our mission is to scale yours.

From nonprofits and NGOs, to universities, hospitals, and local governments, Twilio.org exists to bring the power of Twilio's Customer Engagement Platform to organizations advancing social good.

Connecting our product, people, and capital for good

At Twilio, we believe that business should leave society better than we found it, and the most effective approach is weaving social impact directly into our business. Through Twilio.org, we integrate social impact into how we build our products, mobilize our people, and share our capital.

With an increased demand for services, nonprofits are looking for ways to scale their impact efficiently. 89% of nonprofits say digital communications, like text messaging, WhatsApp, and video, are critical to achieving their missions. Twilio, the #1 digital communications platform, is uniquely positioned to help drive social impact.

Our approach to social change

Products for good

Twilio’s Customer Engagement Platform is extremely relevant for the social sector to connect with communities, donors, and staff. We help NGOs use Twilio’s technology and lower the barrier to entry with incentives like our Impact Access Program. For instance, the National Alliance on Mental Illness uses our cloud contact center, Twilio Flex, to provide free emotional support to individuals before a crisis escalates.

People for good

Twilio.org provides opportunities for employees to get involved in their communities through our WePledge 1% program, in partnership with regional hubs and employee resource groups (ERGs). The Twarriors—our ERG for veterans and their families—leads the way by volunteering their time. Twarriors provide career coaching, online learning opportunities, and coding bootcamps to the military community with nonprofit OperationCode.

Capital for good  

With Twilio’s 1 percent equity pledge, Twilio.org invests our Impact Fund in digital transformation efforts for humanitarian assistance, climate action, and equitable long-term well being. One grantee, UNICEF USA, uses Twilio funding to protect the rights and wellbeing of every child. By leveraging technology, UNICEF USA can engage more families and children more effectively.

When we went remote using the contact center platform, we were able to extend our hours, quadruple our volunteers, and consistently help 75% more help seekers annually – which is huge.

Dawn Brown National Director, National Alliance on Mental Illness

It’s not enough to provide a learning resource, when a [service member] is going through a cultural transition. The personal relationship and ongoing attention really do matter. That is what I’m struck with in my engagement with the Twarriors.

Conrad Hollomon Executive Director, OperationCode

With the support from the Twilio Vaccine Equity grant, our team can ensure proper communication reaches everyone, locally relevant mechanisms are used to build trust and bring communities on board, and frontline workers are equipped with the skills they need to engage families.
