Cisco's Product Grant Program (PGP) makes technology grants that bring our best-in-class networking products and technology to qualifying nonprofit organizations, helping them to realize significant gains in productivity, scalability, and cost-efficiency.
We specialize in partnering with community organizations around the world who are working in one of our three funding areas: Critical Human Needs, Access to Education, and Economic Empowerment. Together, we build public benefit programs that make innovative use of the Internet and of networking and communications technology.
Cisco partners with TechSoup to help nonprofit partners gain access to new technologies. TechSoup provides product donations, informative resources, and technical support to help community organizations improve their capabilities and impact.
Our Employee Product Donation Program empowers our staff to purchase Cisco equipment at a significant discount and then donate it to qualified nonprofit organizations and schools in the United States.
The Cisco Research Center makes equipment donations to universities as part of an award for a peer-reviewed and approved research proposal. Details at www.cisco.com/research.
