Completing a grant proposal can be time-consuming, so we ask that you review the Eligibility Requirements and Program/Guidelines sections with care before beginning an application. Funding areas and program guidelines have been revised and reflect our current policy for grant eligibility and consideration.
Please note that paper applications are not accepted for technology grants. Only online applications will be processed.
Small - Mid Sized Standard Product Grants are available to nonprofits through our online partner TechSoup. Any eligible nonprofit can request one of several standard equipment packages through TechSoup's online application. TechSoupStock's intuitive shopping cart system allows nonprofits to choose from a variety of pre-packaged Cisco Networking Bundles or individual products.
Online applications for Small- Mid Sized Standard Product Grants can be accessed through the TechSoup web site. Please register your organization to begin the grant application process.
Please review the Program Guidelines and visit Techsoup's Cisco FAQ for information and eligibility requirements. If you have questions regarding the Cisco Donation Program at TechSoupStock, please send your inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application process for the Customized Connectivity Grant program begins with a qualification quiz. Please review the Program Guidelines and take our eligibility quiz to determine if your organization qualifies for this type of grant.
Cisco's Product Grant application for US-based organizations consists of thirteen sections, each of which must be fully completed. A sample application for the Customized Connectivity Product Grant Application is available for your reference.
