Sara Lonegard and Taylor Fairbank – Distribute Aid

Date grant awarded: May 6, 2019

Distribute Aid is a technology platform for refugee aid groups, started by Sara Lonegard and Taylor Fairbank. Their tools help grassroots refugee aid organizations collaborate and coordinate their efforts, with a focus on sending aid, sharing knowledge, managing volunteers, and increasing transparency. By building tools explicitly made to meet the needs of these organizations, they can add millions of dollars in value to the European refugee aid movement and save thousands of hours of administrative effort.

After establishing themselves in Europe, Sara and Taylor hope to expand their scope by helping refugee aid organizations around in the world, and by applying their tools to other fields such as natural disaster relief.
