The Zendesk Tech for Good Impact Award recognizes innovative non-profit organizations that are leveraging technology to create meaningful social impact in their communities.
This annual award program, sponsored by Zendesk, provides funding and resources to support the growth and development of organizations that are transforming the world through technology.

The Overview of Zendesk Tech for Good Impact Award

We at Zendesk believe that technology has the power to transform people’s lives, particularly those of our most vulnerable communities. That’s why the Zendesk Tech for Good initiative works with over 110 nonprofits across the world to provide free Zendesk software, funding, and pro bono support, allowing more organizations to harness technology and serve more people. Tech for Good has two primary goals:

  • Provide NGOs with Zendesk software and grants to help them serve more people and have a greater effect on disadvantaged groups.
  • Collaborate with charities that offer workforce development training for careers in customer experience (CX) to historically marginalized and underrepresented populations.

We help organizations that contribute to the Zendesk Foundation’s impact in the following areas:

  • Foster community by facilitating relationships that provide support and allow people to thrive.
  • Boost resilience in times of crisis – protect against disasters and alleviate human suffering;
  • Create career routes in technology to address the economic opportunity gap and reduce unemployment.

The Tech for Good Impact Awards will provide free software and grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to global charitable organizations.

Applicants should demonstrate how Zendesk’s solutions will enable them to serve more people and have a greater impact on vulnerable or disadvantaged groups.
