Three exciting funding opportunities from GG’s partners

We are excited to announce three funding opportunities being provided by GlobalGiving’s partner organizations!

1. 2012 Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship – Last day to apply, April 27th!

Each year the Skoll Foundation presents the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship to a small number of social entrepreneurs who are solving the world’s most pressing problems. The Skoll Award includes a core support grant to the organization to be paid over three years and a noncash award to the social entrepreneur that is presented at the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship. The Skoll Foundation has an open application process for Awards consideration. However, to be considered for the Award, organizations must meet very specific Awards criteria: winners have a tested and proven social innovation that addresses an issue of critical importance and is positioned for large-scale impact.

2. Dell YouthConnect – Grant applications due May 16th

We live in a global economy that is more connected than ever before. Education has changed with this, moving from a focus on core subjects and formal classrooms to applied learning that actively uses technology to enhance the learning experience. Learning now happens everywhere — at home, at school and in the community. Dell believes we are obligated to make technology easily accessible and provide the tools to use it.

Dell wants to prepare young people for success personally and professionally through information and communications technology. Access to these tools — and knowing how to use them — provides new opportunities. Dell makes this happen through Dell™ YouthConnect that partners with nonprofit organizations to help underserved children. Dell YouthConnect is seeking innovative learning and technology-driven programs through a competitive grant process. Learn more.
