Google.org is giving $5 million to Bay Area nonprofits through the #GoogleImpactChallenge. During the summer of 2015, a panel of advisors helped select ten of the most innovative ideas for building an even better Bay Area.
THE HIDDEN GENIUS PROJECT IS A TOP 10 FINALIST IN THE BAY AREA GOOGLE IMPACT CHALLENGE.
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?
If The Hidden Genius Project finishes in the Top 4 of the Google Impact Challenge, we will be awarded a $500,000 grant from Google.org. These funds will help us launch a multi-year intensive program to train a total of 2000 black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership over the next three years.
HOW DOES THE VOTING WORK?
From September 29 to October 20, the public can cast online votes for the most innovative ideas in the Bay Area. The Top 4 projects will be awarded a $500,000 grant from Google.org. The remaining 6 will receive a grant award of $250K.
