Wherever you start, we believe that technology can take you further. One of our guiding principles at Squarespace is to democratize good design, giving anyone access to the tools they need to create a beautiful online home. The web should be a diverse place populated by diverse individuals and their ideas. This sort of inclusion is important not only to Squarespace and the tech industry, but to the world at large.
This year, on #GivingTuesday—a global day of generosity that champions goodwill over consumerism—we’re partnering with Queens, New York-based C4Q (Coalition for Queens), a coding boot camp for adults that increases economic opportunities for underserved communities through technology.
To support their mission, we’re donating $70,000 to help C4Q achieve their goal of increasing economic opportunity in Queens by transforming the world’s most diverse community into a leading hub for innovation and entrepreneurship. We’re also furthering their mission by launching the second iteration of givingtuesday.squarespace.com, where beginning November 29, you can learn about some of C4Q’s graduates. We’ll feature one student per week until the end of the year, sharing their inspiring stories and boosting their professional profiles. Through this collaboration, we hope to develop a diverse tech community and provide a platform where individuals within that community can thrive.
Finally, we’re expanding access to technology by giving 20% off Squarespace websites and domains purchased on November 29 with the offer code GIVINGTUESDAY.
This discount will apply only websites and domains purchased between 12:00 am EST and 11:59 pm EST on November 29, and will not be applied to subscription renewals, existing subscriptions, Google Apps, Getty Images, or any other Squarespace products.
Learn more about Madelyn Tavarez (pictured here) and other C4Q graduates at givingtuesday.squarespace.com. New graduates will be featured each week.
