May 27, 2014 Posted by Jessica Shofler in Grantmaking, News, Nonprofits

Google Impact ChallengeGoogle recently announced the top 10 finalists for its Google Impact Challenge. Through the challenge, Google hopes to find the nonprofits with “the most innovative ideas for making the Bay Area stronger.”

The Impact Challenge finalists were chosen by a panel of community advisors including the Honorable Aida Alvarez, a former Clinton Administration official, Norman Mineta, the former Mayor of San Jose and former US Secretary of Transportation, and Oakland’s Fire Chief Teresa Deloach Reed, among others. Google asked the panel to select the charities that had projects with “scalability, feasibility, ingenuity and impact.”

The finalists include charities active in education, health, the arts, and other areas. Check out Google’s voter guide with summaries of the finalists as well as videos about each finalist.

Each Impact Challenge finalist will receive at least $250,000. The four finalists with the most votes, as determined by an online vote that started Thursday and will continue through June 2, will receive $500,000. Google also named 14 runners-up that will each receive $100,000 grants.
