TechFoundation
Deadline: October 31, 2017

https://www.research.net/r/TechGrant2017

TechFoundation is accepting applications for their TechGrants program. This program provides nonprofits with access to capital and/or equipment to help meet their technology needs.

TechFoundation manages the TechGrant Program. It is a flexible program and total funding will depend upon the nature and quality of the application pool. Grants will range from $5,000 to $25,000 (all in cash) per grantee. It is expected that total funding will range from $100,000 to $400,000. Given national IT needs of non-profits and the broad criteria, TechGrant awards are extremely competitive.

In order to apply for a TechGrant, the applicant organization must have IRS 501(c)(3) public charity status and be current on Guidestar. Charity Navigator reviews are also part of the review process.

Funds may be used for hardware, software, or services. No overhead expenses are allowable.
