The Google.org Impact Challenge Oklahoma City rallies the community around bold ideas to make our neighborhoods even better.
A panel of advisors helped us select four nonprofits with innovative ideas for growing economic opportunity in the Oklahoma City area, and each will receive $50,000 in grant funding as well as Google training. The public has now voted for the cause they believe has the most promise, and the People's Choice winner will receive an additional $50,000.
