Using Zuora for Good

Making the Subscription Economy Work for Everyone

We believe that one day, every company will be part of the Subscription Economy. As consumers shift their preference from ownership to usership, everything will eventually become a service. This is a once-in-a-century shift having a major impact on our society. 


Zuora.org is committed to ensuring the Subscription Economy benefits individuals and communities as much as it does businesses. We want everyone to be able to access and participate in this new economy and benefit from the opportunities being unlocked.


Zuora has taken the 1% Pledge, and is proud to leverage everything we have to make the communities where we live and work stronger.


The Zuora Impact Fund

At our IPO we committed that 1% of our resources would be directly funneled back into our communities. To make good on this promise, we created the Zuora Impact Fund, in partnership with the Tides Foundation. This fund is used to disperse grants to mission-aligned nonprofits and social enterprises. 


We’ve initially committed $5,000,000 over 5 years to be used for grants supporting organizations that:


  • work to bridge socioeconomic opportunity gaps
  • strength the communities where ZEOs live and work
  • are supported by our global ZEO community


At the heart of Zuora.org is the work of our global employee base, or as we call them, ZEOs. Individuals from around the world have stepped up to start local Z-Philanthropy chapters and regularly create rich volunteer and giving experiences for fellow ZEOs.


The activities that are created are grown from the passions of our ZEO’s and there is no limit to the types of volunteer and giving campaigns that our Z-Philanthropists create. 


In 2020 we hosted our first-ever Global Week of Giving, in which ZEOs from around the world developed and participated in volunteer activities both in Zuora’s offices and in our communities.

Strategic Nonprofit Partners

We’re excited to announce three new organizations joining the Zuora Impact Fund strategic partner community: Climb Hiredev/Mission and Upwardly Global. These organizations will join BUILD, a long-term strategic partner. 

Not only do these organizations provide access to resources, training and career pathways, but they’re committed wholeheartedly to empowering their constituents to propel their lives and careers forward and achieve new levels of economic mobility. 


Community Impact Grants

In 2020, we launched our first public Community Impact grant cycle and encouraged nonprofits addressing their communities highest needs and barriers to economic participation to apply for a grant of up to $50,000. 


We’re proud to have selected an amazing cohort of grant recipients, these organizations are doing wonderful work in their communities and we are honored to be able to help fund their work. 

While all public grant cycles are now closed, we hope to open our 2021 Community Impact Grant program later this year. Check back to find our how to apply once open.
