Closing the digital divide
Helping nonprofits become social-profits
Top quality, affordable services for organizations on a tight budget
StrideLab’s in Support for Black Lives Matter
StrideLabs is a tech, social enterprise that is actively standing in solidarity with our African American brothers and sisters as we support the movement to transform institutions that perpetuate racist policies that impact all aspects of American life. Brothers, sisters, fathers, sons and daughters continue to be stolen from us. What happened to men and women like George Floyd, Tanisha Anderson, and Tamir Rice are the predictable results of a racist system that continues to dehumanize black and brown people. The names we see on the news and social media are only the latest in the list stemming from the birth of our nation. Until white America takes responsibility for its past, the enduring impact systemic racism has on the present, and commits to co-creating a future founded in justice, this list of names will continue.
Here at StrideLabs, in addition to participating in community-organized actions, we are digging in our tool kit to dedicate free office hours to provide tech and fundraising advice to nonprofits and social sector support organizations that focus on people of color communities. Over the next 3 months, we hope to strengthen their resiliency and ability to effectively operate in these unimaginably difficult times.

Our MissionOur mission is to close the digital divide by providing top quality affordable services to help nonprofits and socially-responsible businesses leverage technology effectively, while providing job opportunities for people who are under-represented in tech.
Women, Blacks & Latino/a are underrepresented in the tech industry and many nonprofits don’t have the bandwidth to take advantage of the free technologies available to them. We’re addressing both by training folks to become Salesforce experts and giving them experience while helping nonprofits use free tech tools effectively.
StrideLabs is a nonprofit that’s leveraging the power of Salesforce technology to help disrupt the cycle of inequality, championing diversity in technology, and support the business objectives of other nonprofits.
We're Making StridesWe have created training and internship opportunities for people who are underrepresented in the tech industry. Now, we are exploring new social enterprise models and fresh approaches that will allow us to deepen our impact in the lives of people and at the nonprofits we wish to serve.
We Get NonprofitsWe get nonprofits because we are one. We’re leveraging our mission to advance yours.
