This past year was challenging for many organizations around the world. As we think about how we can give back and make an impact, however small it may be, we look to the nonprofit community who bring their all every day to help people, animals, and the environment. Without these organizations and their dedication to making the world a better place, there would be more hardship, more suffering, more loss, and more tragedy.

So we are giving back to those who always give, because amazing things happen when people connect. We want to highlight the incredible work nonprofits have done in a challenging time. Through RCause, RingCentral’s signature Corporate Social Responsibility program, we are launching our first-ever grant program where we will award over $50,000 in grants to incredible nonprofits who rose above new challenges during the pandemic to keep their mission alive and help the communities they serve.

Our RingCentral family recently reviewed and selected 9 finalist organizations out of the hundreds of  applications we received. I’m so honored to share the 9 finalists below!  Check out their incredible work and join us in selecting the final grantees; your votes during the entire month of May will determine which of these incredible nonprofits RingCentral will fund.
