Problem

People are increasingly impacted by the rapidly changing challenges society and the globe faces today.  The global social impact sector, specifically nonprofits, are inundated with problems to solve. While nonprofits are increasingly creating innovative solutions to social and environmental issues, they are restricted based on a variety of resources, from funding and mentorship to human capital.


Solution

Box has partnered with of thousands social impact organizations to-date and anticipate many more through the creation of the Box.org Fund supported by Tides.  Box will initially populate the Box Fund through equity and cash and a scalable “virtuous cycle” will allow nonprofits to continue to succeed with Box cloud content management and invest in it.  Box can then mobilize nonprofit capacity building, also coined as “Biznevelonce.”  These largely unrestricted grants will offer tremendous opportunity for nonprofits.

“In addition to enabling success for all nonprofits leveraging the Box cloud content platform in their work, we'll now focus more on addressing the needs of organizations working to scale youth well-being, tech sector inclusion and humanitarian aid delivery.”
