The goal of AWS is to empower nonprofit organizations to prioritize technology as a mission-critical component of their projects and provide support for organizations pursuing technology-driven goals. As part of the program, AWS seeks proposals for pilot projects, proofs of concept, or existing programs that utilize technology in a new or expanded way.

As part of the program, it is seeking proposals from eligible nonprofits that fit the requirements below:

This award package includes up to $150,000 of unrestricted financial support, up to $100,000 in AWS promotional credit, a project kickoff workshop and implementation guidance from AWS technical specialist(s), up to five AWS training services vouchers, and an opportunity for AWS marketing promotion.
The Momentum to Modernize Award: Will provide funding for transformational infrastructure projects, such as migrating servers to the cloud and modernizing new and existing applications.
