Nonprofit Technology Initiative: Announcing $1M + Funding Round

In early 2021, we are investing $1M+ in multi-year funding  to develop tech for good ecosystems, innovation and thought leadership as part of our commitment to support the social sector through our philanthropy. This investment furthers our mission to create a paradigm shift in how nonprofits are funded and enabled to make the digital transition. 

Applications are open January 4 to January 22, 2021 for the following funding rounds:

  • Nonprofit Technology Initiative: Ecosystems and Capacity Building ($1M USD funding round)
  • Nonprofit Technology Fellows: 6-8 Fellowships ($25,000 USD per Fellow)

Our Commitment

We believe that social impact is foundational to Okta’s culture, business and long-term success. That's why in 2016, we took the 1% Pledge as a company and committed our time, product, and equity to giving back. This early commitment has grown into a strategic program backed by our philanthropic fund, The Okta for Good Fund.

Our core focus areas are:
