Free, easy ways you can support Forge
A) Support Forge with each Amazon purchase you make.
Amazon runs a program called AmazonSmile. You pick a nonprofit of your choice, and they'll donate 0.5% of every purchase you make to that nonprofit.

Click here to select Forge as your AmazonSmile nonprofit. (On Amazon, we still come up under our old name, HackCville.)

Donations only go through if you shop at smile.amazon.com; click here to install a Chrome extension that will always redirect any Amazon links to smile.amazon.com.
B) Switch your home's electricity to clean power.
We're proud partners with Arcadia, a terrific service that makes it easy to switch your home's electricity to clean, renewable energy. You can switch too and support us in the process. That's a win for you, a win for Forge, and a win for the planet.

Depending on where you live, Arcadia might be free or might cost just $5/month. If you sign up via our special link below, you'll also get $10 off your next electric bill, and we will too.

Click here to see if Arcadia is available in your area with our special referral link.
Or you can hire one of our students
Bring on one (or a few!) of our vetted and trained students as an intern at your company via our Launch program. This helps us:

  1. Provide a terrific learning experience for our students. We strongly believe real-world work experience is one of the best ways students can level up their skills.
  2. Fund all of our programs and operations. Revenue from our Launch program helps us fund everything else that we do.
  3. Invest in the future of the Forge community. Most Forge interns come back and teach what they've learned to the next generation of students.

Learn more about the Launch program here, or email us at hello@joinforge.co.
