The technology Company focuses its grantmaking on the following areas: critical human needs, access to education, and economic empowerment. Critical human needs grants aim to overcome the cycle of poverty and dependence through strategic investments that enhance the capacity of organizations that successfully address basic needs of underserved communities. Investment needs include clean water, food, shelter, and preventive healthcare information. Access to education grants support the creation and deployment of Internet solutions enabling primary school-age children to master a baseline of educational knowledge in math, literacy, science, engineering, and technology. Economic empowerment grants encourage entrepreneurship, innovation, and success among underserved populations. They do this via access to capital, small business development, workforce training, and similarly effective economic empowerment strategies. The Company’s cash grants made at the global and regional level target the underserved in communities worldwide. Letters of inquiry are accepted at any time. The maximum grant for first time global grant applicants is $75,000. Additional information including an eligibility quiz can be found on the Web site.
