Funder: Microsoft Community Affairs Program: Unlimited Potential

Microsoft makes monetary grants and in-kind donations of software to nonprofit organizations around the world to help people and communities realize their potential. Nonprofit organizations are welcome to submit proposals for our giving programs if they meet our general eligibility criteria and giving guidelines. Microsoft also donates software to eligible nonprofit organizations throughout the United States. Unlimited Potential is a global program that will focus on improving lifelong learning for disadvantaged young people and adults by providing technology skills through community-based technology and learning centers (CTLC’s). "A community technology center is a free or low-cost, friendly place (in a community center, school, library, housing facility, or other convenient location) where people of all ages and abilities can come to learn about computers, use the Internet, explore new careers, further their education, participate in community activities, or develop technology skills."

Microsoft will consider the following CTLC organizational types eligible for funding: Nonprofit (in the U.S., 501(c)(3) designation) or non-governmental organizations that hold charitable status in their country; School-based (a nonprofit or governmental organization that provides services to the community during non-school hours such as evenings and weekends); Government funded and operated. Unsolicited proposals are reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Deadline: Open
