Ring and NNEDV’s Device Donation Program Renewed

December 7, 2023


Contact: Lisa B. Winjum, Director of Development and Communications (

Today, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), in partnership with Ring, announced the second year of the Ring Donation Program for Domestic Violence Survivors. The program provides video doorbells, security cameras, and Ring Protect Plan subscriptions for the life of each device for domestic violence organizations to give to victims and survivors of abuse. In its first year (November 2022 through October 2023), the program distributed 10,000 devices.

With the goal of enhancing safety planning for domestic violence survivors and their families, this collaboration will continue to benefit nonprofit organizations and federally recognized tribal organizations whose primary mission is to support survivors of domestic violence. These organizations include NNEDV’s membership of the 56 state and U.S. territorial domestic violence coalitions and the nearly 2,000 local domestic violence programs they represent.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with NNEDV to expand the project’s reach to support more communities and survivors across the country,” said Leila Rouhi, Vice President of Trust and Privacy at Amazon and member of the NNEDV Board of Directors. “Expert organizations like NNEDV help us understand how we can best support their efforts, and we look forward to continuing to learn from NNEDV and extending our impact in the coming year.”

Another 10,000 video doorbells, security cameras, and Ring Protect Plan subscriptions are now available. Eligible organizations (including those that received devices last year) may order up to 30 devices per organization during the 2023-2024 program year. Devices will be available in bundles of six, with a $48 administrative fee per bundle to cover operating costs for our partners at TechSoup.

The program will continue to include NNEDV’s Safety Net team sharing privacy and security best practices with recipient organizations to ensure advocates can effectively support survivors who want to use these devices.

“Technology can be a lifeline for survivors in need, providing a means to access support, resources, and connection in the midst of trauma,” said Erica Olsen, NNEDV’s Safety Net Senior Director. “Supporting survivors’ safe, empowered use of technology is a cornerstone of our work. We are proud to have successfully completed the first year of the Ring Donation Program and look forward to continuing to make a difference for survivors and advocates across the country, thanks to Ring’s ongoing partnership and commitment.”
