Google’s $2M Aussie NFP challenge

admin

Global online technology giant Google is offering Australian Not for Profits a share in $2 million in grants to turn their technology-driven ideas into reality.

Google’s Impact Challenge Australia will offer the four winning submissions mentoring and technical support from Google employees and $A500,000 grant funding to help bring their project to life.

Applications are open for Not for Profits with DGR status who can apply online here.

Google says it will announce 10 finalists in October. Australians will then be invited to learn more about the top 10 finalists and cast a vote for their favourite.

“We believe technology can help solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges, and we’re eager to back Australian innovators in the non-profit sector who are using technology to make an impact,” Google Australia Managing Director Maile Carnegie said.

“We want Not for Profits to look at their causes through a technological lens. Often they are very focused on solving problems and coming up with better solutions for a cause but often don’t look at computer science and software.” Read the full Pro Bono News article...
