That’s why we started UiPath Bridge, an employee-driven program that bridges the gap between nonprofits and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
While nonprofits traditionally don’t have the funding or resources to leverage new digital technologies, they can experience the benefits of automation through the Bridge Program.
Through the Bridge program UiPath Employees, Partners, Customers, and Academic Alliance Students are creating a uniquely 21st century coalition.
We pledge to give nonprofits at least one million hours to focus on their core mission. By automating manual, repetitive processes the world’s most pivotal organizations can reboot the way work gets done.
When nonprofits cross the automation bridge and embrace an ‘automation first’ mindset, they take the first step in starting their digital transformation. Nonprofits can use automation to help address the pressures they face while achieving their core business objectives.
For example, when we worked with one of the most prominent child welfare nonprofits in the nation, The New York Foundling, we were able to give back 100,000 hours of clinician's time by automating a simple data entry process. With this added capacity, the Foundling can focus on their core mission and really make a difference in the lives of children!
When you serve society through RPA, you find your purpose.
RPA can reduce processing costs by up to 80%. In less than 12 months, most enterprises see a positive ROI.
Everything robots do is monitored. They execute reliably, reducing risk.
Nonprofits should meet the following requirements:
UiPath selects processes based on selection criteria, overall impact to society, and the Bridge Program’s strategic objectives. Once admitted, nonprofits will:
Once selected, the Bridge Program (representatives from UiPath, customers, partners, and universities) works hand-in-hand with the nonprofit to deliver a production level automation

"We asked our clinicians what they’ll do with the extra 16 hours per month they have. Some said they want to participate in committees that they weren’t able to in the past due to their jobs being so busy; others said they want to complete advanced licensing education. But most said they want to be able to spend more time with the families the Foundling works with, especially those that are difficult to engage with or are at an acute point in their treatment.”
