Google.org Impact Challenge
Your community. Your ideas to make it better. The Google.org Impact Challenge asks local nonprofit innovators how they would make their community—and beyond—an even better place. The public and a panel of local judges vote for the ideas with the most potential, and Google.org pairs each winner with a strategic package of support including funding and Google volunteers.

Google AI Impact Challenge
At Google, we think that artificial intelligence (AI) can meaningfully improve people’s lives, and that the biggest impact will come when everyone can access it. That’s why Google.org is excited to support organizations that are using the power of AI to address social and environmental challenges. Selected organizations will receive customized support to help bring their ideas to life: coaching from Google’s AI experts, Google.org grant funding from a $25M pool, credit and consulting from Google Cloud, and more.Google AI Impact Challenge
