The OrganizingTogether Foundation is proud to offer technical and financial support to nonprofit organizations using technology to reduce poverty, inequity, and environmental degradation locally.
The locally focused projects ensure that underrepresented voices are incorporated into the planning and development of technology solutions.
Awards are made to nonprofit organizations from around the world. These nonprofits must be registered entities within their country and be able to provide documentation. Organizations must be able to demonstrate a longstanding relationship with the community they serve as well as a focus for incorporating underrepresented groups into the planning and development of technology solutions.
The Technology Catalyst Award is given to organizations who have demonstrated proof of concept for a project that uses technology to reduce inequity, poverty, and environmental degradation locally. These projects need technical and financial support to scale. Projects must have a local focus and integrate the underserved and represented into the planning and development of the project.
Concept submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. Please allow up to 60 days for a response from the Executive Committee.

OT Consultants pledge 1% of their pay and time to our 501(c)3 nonprofit the OrganizingTogether Foundation.

The award amount is determined by the projects specific needs and the OT Foundation’s ability to provide support.
