Today Upwork is launching our Work Together Talent Grants!
Upwork is giving $1 million in talent grants to help businesses hire top professionals from Upwork for projects that counter the impact of COVID-19.
These grants will be used to assist projects whose mission is directly tied to mitigating COVID-19’s devastating impact on individuals, communities and economies across the world. There are so many ways to help and no project is too big or too small to have a meaningful impact.

The $1 Million in talent grants will be distributed on an ongoing basis until all funds are awarded.
