This past year we watched some incredible companies launch truly powerful products, from fighting human trafficking to reinvigorating a city through art. These products were amplified through communications, and we believe nonprofits should have access to communications technologies to make a greater impact. Today we’re excited to announce our initiative, A Billion Messages for Good, providing nonprofits with donated and discounted Twilio services.
Using technology to create and accelerate change is core to who we are at Twilio, and we believe there can be greater social good with better communications. For qualified nonprofits, Twilio.org will provide an initial donation of Twilio credits, followed by an extended discount on messages and minutes. Our mission is to enable nonprofits to reach their goals, and together send a billion messages for good.
Get Started with Messages for Good
All qualified nonprofit organizations anywhere in the world are eligible for Twilio.org’s discounted service which includes:
- A Twilio kickstart bundle of $500 in credits

There are a handful of trends we’ve picked up on within the social good space where communications is playing a key role. In the coming year we hope to focus Twilio.org in these areas:
- Civic Engagement - Organizations targeting communities at a local, national, or international level, inspiring change through engagement and communications.
- The Arts - Organizations focused on changing the future of human interaction, making art accessible and engaging, and promoting vitality in the community via art.
- Developing Regions - Organizations utilizing communications technologies to address the needs of emerging economies Including issues of health, civic engagement, and communications enablement.
- STEM Education - Organizations focused on strengthening STEM-related programs for educators and students, and closing the gap for underserved communities.If you are a nonprofit in this area, and you’re using communications for more reach, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mobilizing Efforts for More Impact
We realized if we coordinated efforts, it would make a much greater impact. We established Twilio.org to harness the power of our platform and our team to make a real difference. As this organization grows we will continue to expand how we provide support locally and internationally to groups who need it.
Together we can send a billion messages for good.
