Grow with Google aims to help everyone across America access the best of Google’s training and tools to grow their skills, careers, businesses, and nonprofits. In this spirit, the Google.org Impact Challenge Ohio is awarding $1,000,000 in grant funding to nonprofits creating economic opportunity in our cities and towns. Local nonprofits submitted innovative proposals and a panel of experts and the public helped us decide the five winners.
If you’re a local nonprofit and did not get a chance to submit an application, we invite you to join our Grow with Google Partner Program. By joining, you will have access to free resources that can help your organization teach people the digital skills they need to grow their careers and businesses.
