Enhance Survivor Safety with Ring Devices

Ring for Nonprofits

To support peace of mind and provide an added security tool to survivors’ safety planning, Ring has collaborated with the National Network to End Domestic Violence to provide Ring Video Doorbells and Ring Stick Up Cam devices to organizations directly supporting survivors.


What This Donation Includes

Devices are provided in bundles of 6. Eligible nonprofits can request up to 5 of these bundles, for a total of 30 devices per year. Each device includes a Ring Protect Basic subscription plan for the life of that device.

Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions below for information about TechSoup's administrative fee for these products


Who Is Eligible for This Offer

Ring for Nonprofits is only available to U.S.-based organizations whose primary mission is to support survivors and victims of domestic violence. Organizations must also be registered U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofits or federally recognized Tribal organizations.

Donated devices are intended to be given directly to survivors on a case-by-case basis, and are not intended for the use of the organizations that receive them. Products included in this offer may not be distributed to government agencies, law enforcement agencies, or public safety agencies.

Recipient Considerations

The National Network to End Domestic Violence’s Safety Net program encourages organizations to consider the following points before sharing donated Ring devices with survivors.

  • The survivor will need working Wi-Fi with high-speed internet in order for the device to work.
  • The survivor will also need a mobile device with internet access and the capability to download and run the Ring App (available on iOS, Android, and Fire OS devices).

The most ideal scenario for using these devices will be when:

  • The survivor is receiving supportive services from a nonprofit agency for safety planning around domestic violence.
  • The survivor is working with an advocate who can discuss how to best incorporate a Ring device into their individualized safety plan.

When I tried to order, I received a message that my “type of organization is not eligible for these products.” But my 501(c)(3) nonprofit serves victims of domestic violence, and I believe it is eligible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can my organization learn more about the products offered in this program?

The Ring Video Doorbell and Stick Up Cam are offered as part of this program. Each device comes with a Ring Protect Basic subscription for the life of that device.

What is TechSoup's administrative fee for the Ring for Nonprofits program?

A small administrative fee of $48 per bundle of six Ring devices is required. Please note the administrative fee for these products is not refundable, and the products cannot be exchanged.

Why is a TechSoup administrative fee required? I thought Ring was donating these devices.

While Ring is donating these devices to eligible organizations, TechSoup’s administrative fee helps cover TechSoup’s operational costs. TechSoup is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and the fee allows TechSoup to continue to offer donated and discounted technology products to nonprofits around the world.

How many devices total is Ring donating as part of this program?

Through a twelve-month cycle, Ring is donating up to 10,000 devices (Video Doorbells and Stick Up Cameras), including a free Ring Protect Plan subscription for the life of each device. Device requests are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis and while supplies last.

What is the maximum number of devices that each organization can request?

Each organization has a maximum allotted quantity of 30 devices (5 bundles). Both device types come in bundles of six. We encourage eligible organizations to request devices on an as-needed basis. You can place as many requests as needed, as long as the total quantity for all of your requests does not exceed 30 devices. Donated devices are intended to be given directly to survivors on a case-by-case basis, and are not intended for the use of the organizations that receive them.

What types of organizations are eligible for this program?

Only approved nonprofit organizations (including Tribal organizations) that administer victim support programs and services are eligible. Devices are donated directly to these expert organizations who work one-on-one with victims of domestic violence.

How long will it take for my organization to receive devices?

Once an organization completes the TechSoup checkout process, TechSoup will notify Ring to begin fulfillment. This fulfillment process will take 6-8 weeks to complete.

Are government or public safety agencies eligible for this program?

No. Ring does not make device donations to government, public safety agencies, or law enforcement, as a matter of policy.

Where can I find more information on Ring’s privacy practices?
