When Tech Gives Back, Boston Wins

Join Us for TUGG’s 6th Annual Tech Gives Back Day of Service

With the summer behind us, Boston is back in the groove - the mean, lean tech machine is hard at work. Take a look around you on your morning commute, the shift in mindset is palpable.

Boston’s nonprofits are ramping up too, ready to serve those who need help the most. Soup kitchens planning out warm meals for cold nights. Schools purchasing supplies to challenge young minds. Homeless shelters preparing beds for those who don’t have a place to call home. These nonprofits can’t succeed without the support of their communities, so this October 20th we ask you to get out of the office and into your community for Tech Gives Back!

Registration is Now Open!

Together with Silicon Valley Bank join over 1,500 TUGGers for our 6th Annual Tech Gives Back day of service. We will volunteer dozens of nonprofit sites serving over 9,000 hours in just one day to benefit Boston’s homeless, veterans, seniors, and at-risk families and youth. Participation is completely free to ensure that everyone who wants to give back, can.

Tech Gives Back is one of our  favorite days of the year because it brings out the best of Boston’s tech community. And our leadership is clear: Tech Gives Back is the biggest day of service in the world by number of companies involved. No one does community like Boston.

Take a moment to browse through our volunteer projects here and see what project speaks to your heart and your company culture. Registration is now open!

Get your colleagues - or your whole company! - on board and help us honor the organizations that makes our city a vibrant place to work and live, not to mention a great place to build companies.

Rally the Troops!

TUGG annual partner Rapid7 has committed to closing its offices globally on October 20 and will commit its entire employee base to a day of service alongside TUGG. Will you commit to getting your team out in full force? Take the #Rapid7Challenge and tweet us @TUGGOrg!

Party to Celebrate A Hard Day’s Work

No TUGG event would be complete without a party. After a day of work, we will come together for a casual community “block party” at The Innovation and Design Building (with many thanks to the generosity of Jamestown Properties for their support). TUGG’s entire nonprofit portfolio will join us as we unwind and reflect on the day.

Get in to Give Back

At TUGG we take a fresh perspective on sponsorship. We think it's not about what you get, it's about what you give.

It's no secret that cash is tight in the start-up community, but TUGG sponsors have their priorities straight. They believe in giving back to their community, the same community that allows them to prosper and that makes Boston a great place to work and live.

All TUGG sponsors donate what they can, whether it's $1,000 or $15,000+ based on the stage and growth of their company. All event sponsorship funds go towards TUGG grants to our portfolio of nonprofits.

Can we count you in? Email zoe@tugg.org to sponsor the afterparty and help support our mission of funding Boston’s most experimental nonprofits!
