Tech for Good Giving & Partnership Guidelines

Background

At F5, we believe that—because we are all connected—we can be a force for good through efforts to improve our communities by driving technology advancement and digital transformation. This is true now more than ever given the challenges nonprofits are facing during these unprecedented times. That is why we have created a fund within our Tech for Good initiative to provide grants to nonprofits to support them in their digital transformation right now. Our funding priority with F5’s Tech for Good COVID-19 Response Grants is that these grants will be used to improve technology infrastructures so that nonprofits can adjust to and thrive as remote workforce demands increase. We are committed to helping nonprofits to keep those they serve, their donors, employees, and volunteers safe, healthy, and productive.

The F5 Tech for Good COVID-19 Response Grants will be one-time $10,000 USD grants. Funding will be prioritized based on F5 office location presence and operational urgency to support the public in response to COVID-19.
