October 07, 2019 / Janice Bitters

Google on Monday launched a $10 million contest for nonprofits around the Bay Area to win grants ranging between $100,000 and $1 million from its philanthropic arm, Google.org. The contest, called the “Bay Area Impact Challenge,” marks the third time in five years Google.org has held the challenge. This year’s awards, however, will go to more organizations and add up to nearly double the amount of past years’ grants. Of the 35 expected finalists, five organizations will win $1 million each, and one of those million-dollar winners will be picked by Bay Area residents, according to Jacquelline Fuller, president of Google.org.
