Who should apply?

Linode Social Change Grants are open to new or existing not-for-profit organizations with a primary mission of tackling humanitarian issues and working with underserved communities. The grants can be used towards organization websites, information or directories, educational content, or something else - if your organization needs infrastructure, is a (registered or not registered) non-profit, and promotes positive social change.


How does it work?

Whether or not your application is accepted, we are committed to getting back to you on next steps, if applicable.
