We are committed to playing a positive role and investing in the long-term vitality of the communities where we have data centers. One of the ways we do this is by providing grants for projects that address critical community needs by:
Putting the power of technology to use for community benefit
Connecting people online or off
Improving local science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education
Grant applications will be accepted by eligible organizations in communities where Meta has an operational data center (see eligible communities).
In the United States, 501(c)(3) organizations and public schools are eligible for grants. Schools are encouraged to notify the superintendent of desired grants to ensure the most competitive and feasible applications are submitted.
In Europe, registered not for profit organizations and government entities (including state-run schools and municipalities) are eligible for grants.
Schools may apply for multiple grants. All other organizations are limited to one application per cycle. Projects must have demonstrable metrics that can be publicly reported. Grant funds are intended to be used within one year of the grant award date.
