About the Organization

Connecting is inherently inclusive, and we're all about it. Everything we do—every innovation we unleash—serves our purpose: to power an inclusive future for all. If you can imagine it, we will build a bridge to get you there. Cisco. The bridge to possible.

Cisco offers an industry-leading portfolio of technology innovations. With networking, security, collaboration, cloud management, and more, we help to securely connect industries and communities.

We've been making a positive impact on our communities and our planet since we were founded in 1984.

About the Grant

Cisco welcomes applications for the Product Grant Program from community partners around the world who share our vision and offer an innovative approach to a critical social challenge.

Cisco donates networking technology to qualified nonprofit organizations to help them realize significant gains in productivity, scalability, and cost efficiency. Together, we build public benefit programs that make innovative use of networking and communications technology to have a measurable impact.

The Cisco Product Grant Program focuses on the same social investment areas as our cash grants: Cisco Crisis Response (which includes shelter, water, food, and disaster relief); education; economic empowerment; and climate impact and regeneration.

Grant Size

The maximum request amount for first-time grant recipients is US$100,000 (list price) of equipment.


Cisco's Product Grant Program accepts applications year-round from eligible charitable organizations.

Organizational requirements:

  • Organizations within the United States (U.S.) must be recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and classified by the IRS as a public charity.
  • Organizations outside the United States (U.S.) must provide information and documents to determine whether the organization is the equivalent of a U.S. public charity.
  • Organizations must serve the community at large.
