Opportunity for everyone
In our first Founders’ Letter, we stated our goal to develop services that improve the lives of as many people as possible. We’re building on that with a five-year commitment to award $1 billion in grants and enable 1 million employee volunteer hours, while continuing to develop products and programmes that create opportunity for everyone.
Opportunity to learn
We know that education is the most powerful use of information to improve lives. Our education products – from Classroom to Chromebooks – benefit more than 80 million people in 180 countries, while our programmes and philanthropic efforts aim to close the education equity gap through technology, tools and training that help students and educators alike thrive.
