Eligible Organizations include (1) federal, state and local governments, (2) non-governmental organizations (NGO) and (3) nonprofits or other charitable organizations. If you are a nonprofit or NGO (e.g., a 501(c)(3) entity in the United States, Registered Charity in the United Kingdom or any not-for-profit organization or NPO equivalent in your country) you will be required to submit documentation demonstrating such status.
Existing WeWork Members or non-WeWork members who satisfy the eligibility requirements set out above may participate in the Initiative.
THE INITIATIVE IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW IN THE COUNTRY IN WHICH THE ELIGIBLE ORGANIZATION IS BASED OR OPERATES OR WHERE OTHER REQUIREMENTS WOULD BE REQUIRED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN MET.
In addition to satisfying the Eligibility Requirements, participation in this Initiative is subject to you entering into a WeWork membership agreement, or in the case of an existing WeWork member, an amendment to your existing agreement, and you will be bound by all the terms stated therein (the “Membership Agreement”). The Membership Agreement shall govern your receipt of services at the particular WeWork location situated in the jurisdiction where this Initiative is being offered. You shall be subject to all the terms stated therein.
WeWork reserves the right to designate, assign and change eligible buildings participating in this Initiative.
WeWork, in its sole discretion, may refrain from entering into the Membership Agreement with you for any reason, including, but not limited to, you are no longer deemed an “essential business” or similar designation by an applicable governing body for the municipality, city, state, or country the WeWork location where the organization is participating in this Initiative.

The availability of this Initiative, building locations and the requirements for participation are subject to change from time to time in our sole discretion, and we may change, suspend, or discontinue all or part of the Initiative at any time in our sole discretion.

The Initiative offer is non-transferrable and no substitutions (including, without limitation, for cash) are permitted. If you violate any of the Initiative offer terms, the Initiative offer will be invalid.
WeWork is providing information to you about a third party (“Service Provider”). You acknowledge and agree that WeWork is not responsible for any third-party products or services offered by any Service Provider (“Services”). The Services are made available exclusively by the Service Provider, and WeWork is not responsible for the performance of the Services and does not make any representations about the Services. If you have any disputes or issues regarding a Service obtained from a Service Provider, you must contact the Service Provider directly. A Service Provider may provide goods or services that require a Service Provider to have a regulatory authorization or license.

You should make whatever investigation you deem necessary before purchasing any offering from the Service Provider. The Service Provider is solely responsible for the accuracy, care and quality of the Services being provided. Please contact the Service Provider directly with any issues or concerns.

To the extent permitted by law, you, on your own behalf and on behalf of your employees, agents, guests and invitees, (i) waive any and all claims, liabilities, costs, damages, expenses and rights, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (“Claims”) against the WeWork Parties resulting from injury or damage to, or destruction, theft, or loss of, any property, person or pet and (ii) release the WeWork Parties from any such Claims. You shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542 or any other similar law of any jurisdiction, which says in substance: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
