Auth0 encourages and supports employee’s philanthropic interests! The Auth0 Gives program was proudly established by a group of Auth0 employees who are excited about engaging and supporting their communities. Our Auth0 Gives team organizes donation and cash based drives that include both our in office and remote based employees to encourage giving back and making a difference in our communities. Auth0 also matches employee contributions annually, partnered through Causecast.
Kiva is a non-profit (and Auth0 customer!) that supports small businesses around the world by providing them with micro-loans. These micro-loans are crowd-funded by lenders around the world during campaigns (think GoFundMe with a humanitarian focus). When a borrower pay off their loan, lenders get their money back and can re-invest through another campaign!
Kiva is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva works with microfinance institutions, social businesses, schools and non-profit organizations on five continents to provide loans to people without access to traditional banks and other financial services.
One hundred percent of the money lent on Kiva is sent to these organizations, which Kiva calls its FieldPartners. Field Partners are responsible for screening borrowers, administering the loans in the field, and then posting them to Kiva's website to be funded by Kiva lenders. Kiva has been named by Fortune Magazine as “the hottest non-profit on the planet" and one of Oprah’s ‘Favorite Things.’
After the borrower pays back their loan (97% payback rate!), we can re-invest the funds to other borrowers through another campaign!
