Wherever IBM does business around the globe, we form connections to communities and support a range of civic and not-for-profit activities that help those in need. In all our efforts, we demonstrate how technology can enrich and expand access to services and assistance.
IBM Services Grants
IBM Services Grants help educational and not-for-profit organizations to enhance their IT infrastructure, and leadership and technology skills.
The grants provide consultations with IBM experts and access to IBM technology. These tailored solutions were developed in collaboration with organizations in the not-for-profit community, and are specifically designed to support them in their efforts to serve our communities.
IBM Community Grants
IBM Community Grants support employees and retirees who volunteer regularly with not-for-profit organizations. In 2011, community organizations received grants with a value of $10 million through IBM Community Grants.
World Community Grid
Late in 2004, IBM and a group of leading foundations, public organizations and academic institutions launched World Community Grid. The mission is to create the largest public computing grid benefiting humanity. World Community Grid is calling for volunteers from all over the globe to be part of this exciting effort.
Digital Solidarity Fund (DSF)
Advocated by the Hong Kong Council of Social Services (HKCSS), DSF hopes to bring together the efforts of the government, non-government organizations and the private sector to bridge the digital divide resulted from the rapid IT development in recent years. It aims to provide universal and affordable IT access for the less advantaged in society. IBM is one of the founding members of DSF.
