Cisco and the Cisco Foundation partner with nonprofit organizations around the world, helping to solve global problems through cash grants, technology, and shared expertise.
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. We are not accepting unsolicited requests for support for COVID-19 response at this time, as we are working directly with our established grantee partners globally on any additional response efforts. Thank you to all of the nonprofit organizations that are addressing the immense need for health care, education, and financial assistance, and those addressing critical human needs around the world.
Our goal is to positively impact one billion people by 2025.
We support programs with scalable, replicable, and financially sustainable solutions.
Social innovators can magnify the impact and scale of their work through technology.
We concentrate our investments around education, economic empowerment, and critical human needs.
We prioritize proposals that clearly articulate planned results, using SMART metrics for measurement.
Cisco is putting people, technology, and resources to work in service of an inclusive future where technology gives everyone the tools to thrive. Visit our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Hub.
