A better world, faster

Google has always believed that technology can make a better world. Through projects like Google for Non-profits and Google Crisis Response, we offer help and support to non-profits to achieve this goal, faster. The Google Impact Challenge supports non-profits using technology to tackle problems and transform lives. After running in India, Brazil, the UK and the US, the Impact Challenge launched in Australia.

Ten Australian non-profits will be empowered to make the change we all wished for. The top four winners received a $500,000 grant. The other six finalists received a $250,000 grant. All 10 finalists will also receive mentoring from Google to help realise their vision.
