Corporate Partners and Donors

Auth0 by Okta

Auth0 by Okta has given us a non-profit grant for their Startups plans, valued at approximately $20,000.

Microsoft and GitHub

  • Microsoft through TechSoup has given discounts on Microsoft 365 Business licenses which run our email and gives us access to Microsoft Office applications.
  • GitHub has given us non-profit status, including unlimited enterprise level accounts.


TechSoup has validated us as a non-profit and through them we have access to numerous grants, discounts and donations from their partner organizations. They instantly grow our available offerings immensely for our members.


MongoDB has graciously given us a $500 credit good for one year to help bootstrap our projects


GitBook has generously granted us an open source/non-profit license


1Password has been providing secure shared password management for our team for at least a year so far, at no cost!
We followed this process.


NX is a next generation build system with first class monorepo support and powerful integrations. It works well with yarn, React, Angular, and other critical components of an open source project.

Several of our projects utilize NX and they are a company that supports Open Source Software. They have graciously granted Digital Defiance an open source license to NX Cloud. NX partitions a command into smaller tasks and runs them in parallel, in the correct order. Nx Cloud takes it one step further and runs any command across multiple machines, while giving you a consolidated view of the command as if it ran locally.


Studio 3T has graciously given us a 50% discount on all licenses.


Twilio via TechSoup has given us a non-profit grant of $100 through the Impact Access Program which goes a long way to contacting members and donors at fractions of a penny per contact.
