Cisco and the Cisco Foundation provide cash, products, and people to support nonprofit organizations. The Product Grant Program accepts applications year-round from qualified charitable organizations for technology and equipment. Cisco also makes investments of cash and expertise to community partners with a new approach to a significant social problem.
Cisco and the Cisco Foundation have allocated and granted about $15 million in cash funding to support COVID-19 relief efforts in the United States and around the world, as part of Cisco’s overall $225 million in support for this crisis.
