Google is committed to playing a positive role in each of the communities in which it operates around the world. Through grant-making and local initiatives, Google is working to help businesses, schools, and nonprofits thrive.
The Data Center Community Grants Program supports eligible organizations and initiatives that directly impact the immediate community surrounding a Google data center.
-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 Google’s 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.
