The wealthy tech elite are opening their checkbooks to donate millions of dollars to organizations that they think will bring about criminal and social reform.



Some of them are even vowing to match the donations of others who contribute.



For those wanting to do the same, this list may act as a reference of organizations that have the endorsements of some powerful people.

As the nation has risen to protest the death of George Floyd, luminaries across the tech industry were quick to chime in with statements of support for the Black community. Many are going further and also publicly donating to organizations that are working to solve problems of racial inequality, criminal justice, or police brutality. Some feel that this kind of charitable giving is not a good enough solution from the tech industry: They want to see it coupled with concrete actions within their own companies - the tech industry has an appalling record on diversity - and on their own platforms, which have been criticized for allowing content that incites violence or harassment. But for those wanting to donate to a worthy organization, this list may offer some inspiration, especially since a number of these tech execs have offered to match donations.
