Google.org, the philanthropic arm of Google, supports nonprofits that innovate to address humanitarian issues. Google.org was created to pursue, experiment with, and build upon ideas to improve the world, and continues to take an iterative approach to philanthropy today. Google.org develops and invests in pursuits that can have measurable impact on local, regional and global issues, and rallies Google’s people in support of these efforts with a singular goal of creating a better world, faster.
At Google.org we seek out and support people who are innovating and using technology to combat the world’s biggest challenges. We help nonprofits accelerate and scale by investing in their vision, we rally our employees and mobilize their skills to help our grantees realize their projects, and we always aim to give the best of Google to our grantees. That includes both financial resources + Google resources (Cash + Google). Around the world, Google.org donated over $100 million in grants, $1 billion in technology resources, and 200,000+ hours of Googler volunteering to nonprofits in 2015 alone.
