Grants to USA and international nonprofit organizations and schools in eligible areas for initiatives that directly impact local communities. Funding is intended for projects in the following areas of focus: initiatives that focus on STEM education, especially for underserved groups and girls; green initiatives and carbon reduction; and access to the internet and other technology infrastructure. The application cycle is now open for Berkeley County, South Carolina; Douglas County, Georgia; Lenoir, North Carolina; Mayes County, Oklahoma; The Dalles, Oregon; Quilicura, Chile; Changhua County, Taiwan; Singapore; and St. Ghislain, Belgium.

Specifically, Focus Areas include:

  • Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Google places a particular focus on computer science education and STEM initiatives for underrepresented groups (including girls) in math and science professions.
  • Efforts to bridge the digital divide.
  • Carbon reduction or green initiatives with regional impact.
  • Nonprofit organizations dedicated to strengthening the technology startup or entrepreneurial ecosystem.
  • Technology infrastructure for nonprofits, cultural institutions and schools that will use technology to broaden impact and reach audiences in new ways.

When evaluating proposals, Google considers:

  • Location and geographic impact in the immediate community surrounding one of our offices or data centers.
  • Measurable and demonstrable benefit to the community—the number of persons who will benefit and at how that impact will be quantified.
  • Organizational capacity that may include a track record of implementing programs.
  • Integration with other community resources within the focus area, such as other nonprofits and government entities with similar goals.
  • Innovative approaches that have potential for replication, if successful.
