GiveBIG to Ada

Fight For Equity In Tech

This GiveBIG, we are raising $50,000 to support even more women and gender-expansive folks to break into the tech industry. To continue to change the face of tech, we need your help. 

Every Dollar Makes A Difference 

Your generous donations support:

  • 500 Adies across three campuses
  • Wraparound supports for students: financial assistance, childcare subsidies, mental health therapy, and laptops
  • Outreach in the greater Washington, DC area
  • Expanded programming to lower barriers to entry

How can you get involved?

  • Mark your calendar for May 2nd and 3rd to join in the fun for this two day giving event! 
  • Visit our giving page – early giving is open, so you can give TODAY 
  • Share the campaign on social media
  • Create a peer-to-peer giving page and send the link to your friends and colleagues. 

26%. That’s the percentage of software developers who are women

Only 4% of these software developers are women of color. When you donate to Ada, you drive gender and racial equity in the tech sector, helping us build resilient economies and thriving communities. 

Are you ready to help more Adies break into the tech industry? Support future Adies to make their tech journey possible.
