DEV has donated a total of $10,000 spread across the five charities at the very bottom of the list above. We selected the recipient organizations by voting as a team.
We chose to make an upfront financial donation rather than institute a matching campaign in order to ensure that our contributions could be put to use right away. We strongly encourage you to join us in donating to any of these fabulous charities.
